History Edit

The United States has been heavily isolationist during the period leading up to World War III despite it having been the reigning superpower for Several Decades, this isolationism has seemed to damage the American status as a superpower, leading to it's ultimate downgrade to a "Great Power". However, what has happened that is known to the public has been "Turbulent" as some would say. The American Canal was built during this time on the Mexican-American border, and The secession of Some states which followed the heart attack and shooting of the president following Donald Trump. America has been involved in two wars since the beginning of This Era, The Second Korean War and World War III.

Etymology Edit

The United States of America comes from three words, United, meaning joined together politically, for a common purpose, or by common feelings; States, a political subdivision; and America, the combination of North and South America, which in turn got their name from Amerigo Vespucci, the explorer that first identified the continents as not being part of Asia that we know of.

Government Edit

The United States is a Three Tier Republic, with the three tiers being County, State, and National. (There are sometimes municipalities within counties, but since not all counties have municipalities with their own government, The United States is not classified as being a Four Tier Republic.)

County Level Edit

Counties are usually run by an elected body like a County Council. In some counties, there is a County Executive, which is like the president of the county. Counties usually contain the Three Branches of Government like any other level.

State Level Edit

The States have the ability to organize their government in accordance to their constitution, as long as it is within the broad parameters set by the US government. However, the States, in practice, have all adopted a three-branch system like the US government. The head of the government is called the Governor

National Level Edit

The nation itself has a three branch government, consisting of the Executive, Headed by the President; the Legislative, headed by The Speaker of The House; and the Judicial, led by no one.

Military Edit

The United States has one of the most powerful Armed Forces on the planet. It recently began de-commissioning it's nuclear arsenal after legislation in The Berlin Conference forced it to. (A popular conspiracy theory suggests the the US continues to maintain a nuclear arsenal of 3,260 nuclear warheads in secret.) Although the American military may or may not possess nuclear warheads should not be a concern to the American Public, as their standard military currently consists of 7.8 million military personnel, 3.8 million in reserve, and 1.3 million paramilitary officials. (However, the US military will probably shrink considerably once the two year contracts most people take run out.)
