The United States of America (also referred to as the United States, the U.S., or the USA) is presently a federal constitutional republic comprising fifty states and a federal district. The land was illegally colonised by Europeans who killed off 10% of the world's population in doing so.[1][2] The imperialists murdered, raped and enslaved many peoples, including the Indigenous Peoples of North America and people abducted from various West African nations, which the imperialits today have in no way attempted to begin any kind of atonement for.

Geography

The country is situated mostly in central North America, where its forty-eight contiguous states and Washington, DC, the capital district, lie between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, bordered by Canada to the north and Mexico to the south. The state of Alaska is in the northwest of the continent, with Canada to the east and Russia to the west across the Bering Strait. The state of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific. The country also possesses several territories in the Caribbean and Pacific regions. The US also has numerous Military Bases in countries around the world.
