The United States (US) is a North American country bordered by Canada, the Atlantic Ocean, Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Pacific Ocean. English is the national language, but there is no official language at the federal level. Its official currency is the United States dollar (USD).
There are 50 states that make up the US, and one federal district – Washington DC – as the capital city. It’s a constitution-based federal republic, with the federal government made up of three branches: legislative, executive, and judicial. The elected House of Representatives and Senate belong to the legislative branch. The elected President a cabinet of federal agency leaders head up the executive branch, and they administer laws enacted by the legislative branch. And the judicial branch is formed by circuits who oversee and review the decisions of the district courts. The US Supreme Court has ultimate review of lower court decisions.
Like the federal government, state governments also have legislative, executive, and judicial branches. And then states also have county, city, and municipal governments. The US has 14 dependent territories who have their own governments with limited autonomy (this does not apply to the territories without permanent populations).
