The United States is among the largest and most populous countries worldwide, with a variety of resources that enable it to have a prosperous economy. It has held economic supremacy for much of the last century and remains the world’s wealthiest nation. However, there are overall disparities in population, wealth, and well-being between affluent regions and areas of poverty. In the 1970s, economic issues like an increasing foreign trade deficit, devaluation of the dollar abroad, high government spending, and inflation weakened the U.S. economy. Tax cuts were implemented in the 1980s to drive development in specific sectors but this did not address deficits or halt the growing national debt. In 1993 Congress set up an agreement comprising higher taxes and budget truncation which marked the beginning of a recovery from a 1990 recession but job generation was limited due to economic restructuring. The 1994 elections saw Republicans gain control over both houses for the first time in 40 years seemingly because citizens were concerned about complex social and financial matters.

When 1998 mid-term elections occurred Republicans had maintained power over Congress while passing a balanced federal budget with surpluses appearing soon after. The 2000 race for president saw a peculiar result due to its

The United States is a major global player, being an integral part of international organizations such as the United Nations in New York and the World Bank in Washington D.C. During the Cold War era, it engaged in a tense rivalry with the Soviet Union. The collapse of the Communist party and dissolution of the USSR into independent republics in the 1990’s has meant more collaboration between them and has redirected attention to U.S domestic issues. Nevertheless, it continues to be involved in multinational initiatives albeit reluctantly.

The United States was born out of the American Revolution (1775-83), when 13 states declared and secured their freedom from Britain. During the 19th century, while other European powers constructed global empires, the U.S. concentrated on developing its landmass throughout North America and even acquired some overseas territories, known together as United States outlying territories. These include Guam and Puerto Rico (gained in 1899); American Samoa (obtained in 1900); Panama Canal Zone (acquired in 1903; completely returned to Panama in 1999); and U.S. Virgin Islands (taken over in 1917). In 1947, The Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, which was managed by the U.S., had been set up by the UN; it was abolished in 1994.
