The United States of America, also referred to as the United States, U.S.A., U.S., America, or the States, is a federal republic in central North America, stretching from the Atlantic coast in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west. It shares land borders with Canada in the north and Mexico in the south, shares a marine border with Russia in the west, and has a collection of districts, territories, and possessions around the world including the states of Alaska and Hawaii, as well as territories including Puerto Rico, Midway Atoll, and Guam. The country has fifty states. A United States citizen is usually identified as an American.

The United States obtained its independence from the British in 1776. Before the British, the Dutch, Spanish and French also had a foothold on the New Continent where various tribes of Native Americans had lived for thousands of years.

The country was founded under a tradition of having the rule come from the people under the representative democracy model. This model of democracy has since been adopted by many other countries.
