About United States
The United States of America (USA), is a federal republic composed of 50 states.
At 3.8 million sq miles (9.8 million km2) and with over 325 million people, the USA 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 USA 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 USA holds 33.4% of the total wealth in the world, the largest share of global wealth concentrated in a single country.
The United States of America ranks among the highest nations in several measures of socioeconomic performance, including average wage, human development, per capita GDP, and productivity per person. The USA 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 USA 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.
There are 488 people groups in the USA and 84 of them (or 17% of the population) are considered out of reach of the hope of the gospel.
The largest religion is Christianity at 77%; 26% profess to be Evangelicals.
