GENERAL INFORMATION:

The United States of America is the third-largest country in the world in population, and it is the fourth-largest country in area. China and India are the only countries with more people. Only Russia, Canada and China have larger areas.

The United States is comprised of the 50 states and the District of Columbia, home to the nation's capitol, Washington, DC. The United States covers the entire midsection of North America, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west. It also includes Alaska, in the north-west corner of North America; and Hawaii, far out in the Pacific. The United States is often called the US, USA, or America.

The land of the United States is as varied as it is vast. It ranges from the warm beaches of Florida and Hawaii to the frozen northlands of Alaska, and from the level Midwestern prairies to the snow-capped Rocky Mountains. This huge and beautiful country is rich in natural resources. It has great stretches of some of the most fertile soil on earth, a plentiful water supply and excellent water routes, and large stretches of forests. Huge deposits of valuable minerals, including coal, natural gas and petroleum, lie underground.

POPULATION

The United States has a population of around 265 million and has one of the world's most varied populations in terms of ancestry. The population includes descendants of people from almost every part of the world. Approximately 92% of today's total population were born in the United States. The largest foreign-born groups are Mexicans, Germans, Canadians, Italians, Cubans and Filipinos.

The United States has an average population density of about 71 persons per square mile (28 persons per sq km). However, the density varies widely from place to place.

POLITICAL STRUCTURE

The United States is a federal republic bound by the United States Constitution. Each of the 50 constituent states and the District of Columbia exercises a measure of internal self-government. Defence, foreign affairs, coinage, posts, the higher levels of justice, and internal security are the responsibility of the federal government.

The President is head of the Executive and is elected to a four-year term by a college of representatives elected directly from each state. The President appoints the other members of the Executive, subject to the consent of the Senate.

The Congress is the seat of legislative power and consists of the Senate (100 members) and the House of Representatives (435 members). Two senators are chosen by direct election in each state, to serve a 6-year term, and one-third of the membership is renewable every two years. Representatives are elected by direct and universal suffrage for a two-year term. The number of representatives of each state in Congress is determined by the size of the state's population.

Ultimate judicial power is vested in the Supreme Court, which has the power to disallow legislation and to overturn executive actions, which it deems unconstitutional.

The US has a two major political parties, the Democratic and the Republican. Both parties receive support from individuals and groups in all parts of the country. Members of these two parties hold almost all of the offices in the national, state and local governments.

INFRASTRUCTURE AND ECONOMY

The United States ranks first in the world in the total value of its economic production. Although the United States economy is based largely on a free enterprise system, the government has placed regulations on economic practices through the years. It has passed anti-trust laws, which are designed to keep one company or a few firms from controlling entire industries.

Additionally, government regulations help protect consumers from unsafe merchandise, protect workers from unsafe working conditions and unreasonably low wages, and help reduce environmental pollution. In spite of the involvement of the government, the United States still has one of the least regulated economies of the world.

Varieties of natural resources provide the raw materials that support the economy of the United States. In addition to a moderate climate, the most valuable resources are minerals, soils, water, forests and fish. Service industries account for 74% of the US gross domestic product and employ 76% of the country's workers. Community, social and personal services rank first, and finance, insurance and real estate rank next among US service industries.

Wholesale and retail trade plays major roles in the American economy. Important US exports include machinery and transportation equipment, such as aircraft, computers, electric power equipment, industrial machinery, and motor vehicles and parts. Manufactured articles, chemical elements and compounds, basic manufactures and agricultural products round out the spectrum of exports.

Leading US imports include machinery and transport equipment; manufactured articles such as clothing, shoes and toys; mineral fuels and lubricants; basic manufactures such as iron, steel and other metals, and paper and newsprint; and chemical products, such as chemical compounds and medicines. Government services, (federal, state and local governments buy a fifth of all the goods and services produced in the nation) and transportation, communication and utilities are important to the economy. Manufacturing accounts for 18% of the gross domestic product and employs 16% of the workforce.

The value of American manufactured goods is greater that of any other country. The leading categories of US manufactured products are, in order of value, chemicals, transportation equipment, food products, non-electrical machinery, electrical machinery, printed materials, scientific and medical instruments, fabricated metal products, paper products, rubber and plastic products, and primary metals. Construction accounts for 4% of the US gross domestic product, agriculture accounts for 2%, and mining accounts for 2%.

The United States has never had an official language, but English has always been the chief language spoken in the country. Immigrants from the British Isles, who included the nation's founders, spoke English. Today, Spanish is the second most common language in the United States.
