About United States

The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States, US, or America, is a federal republic composed of 50 states.  

At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2) and with over 325 million people, the United States is the world's third-largest country by total area, and the third-most populous country. It is the largest Christian-majority country.  

The capital is Washington DC and the largest city by population is New York City.

The United States is a founding member of the United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and other international organizations.

Though its population is only 4.3% of the world total,  the US holds 33.4% of the total wealth in the world, the largest share of global wealth concentrated in a single country.

The United States ranks among the highest nations in several measures of socioeconomic performance, including average wage, human development, per capita GDP, and productivity per person. The US is the foremost military power in the world, making up a third of global military spending,  and is a leading political, cultural, and scientific force internationally.

The extremely diverse geography, climate, and wildlife of the United States make it one of the world's 17 megadiverse countries. There are about 17,000 species of plants, and over 1,800 species of flowering plants are found in Hawaii, few of which occur on the mainland.  

The United States is home to 428 mammal species, 784 bird species, 311 reptile species, and 295 amphibian species. About 91,000 insect species have been described.  

The bald eagle is both the national bird and national animal of the United States, and is an enduring symbol of the country itself.  

There are 59 national parks and hundreds of other federally managed parks, forests, and wilderness areas.

The largest religion is Christianity at 77%. 26% profess to be Evangelicals.
