With a gross domestic product of 13.5-13.7 trillion dollars, the united states is the most monetarily successful country in the world at present time. Traditionally a capitalist society, the United States thrives on the buying and selling of goods and services between private enterprise and business, and not through heavy taxation or government legislation and intervention, such as our neighbor to the north as well as many of the European Union nations. In the United States, the citizens are not FORCED to be held personally responsible for the hospitalization and healthcare costs of those who offer absolutely nothing to society. Due to that, we are not FORCED to wait on average 4 months to see a specialist once diagnosed with a disease (a study calculated by the Frasier Institute of Canada). also unlike our neighbors to the north, who's physicians must deal with absolutely EVERYONE.
Unlike the ignorant impressions of American healthcare by most Canadians, Americans with any sort of decent job have health insurance financed by the companies they work for, in most cases at no cost to the end user. At the other end of the spectrum, the poor/misfortunate/unemployed in America also have access to free healthcare in the form of charity hospitals and free clinics, who's turnaround time is about on par with the services enjoyed by ALL Canadians.

I'll basically sum up the regions/states:
Northeast; Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. Famous for NYC and Jersey shores. Known for high education and lots of money but has some ghettos like Camden, West Philly, Harlem and more. Despite popular believe it is not freezing here.

We don't think we have accents but we do. New York (Brooklyn, Staten Island accents), Boston, Philly, Jersey all have accents. Jersey people say Jurzee
not Joisey. We talk pretty fast and everyone's in a rush. Parties are crazy up here. We are diverse, whites, blacks, hispanics, asians all live together. Sports are big, especially baseball, soccer, lax, football, and cheerleading.
Midwest; Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, North and South Dakota. Known for Chicago and Detroit. They have a slight accent. Midwest may not have beaches but it is still an intresting part of the country.
West; Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah. Known for Las Vegas, Denver and Salt Lake City. Las Vegas is paradise. It might not have beaches but with pools so great you really don't need them. This part of the country has a ...

*-Not when the war actually began; this actually displays the dates from how long the United States was involved in the conflict.
The only two wars that the United States could never claim a victory for would be the Korean War, since it ended in a cease-fire and stalemate; and the Vietnam War, because we were gradually pushed back and finally withdrew from the country at Saigon, the largest city in non-Communist southern Vietnam at that time (1975).
Best damn country out there. Anybody who doesn't like America can kiss my ass
United States is better than you!
the US, founded on the basis of "Freedom". The only country where you can become the most powerful man in the world.
