About United States of America : 

One of the most populated and powerful countries in the world, the United States of America is the third largest country, with a total land area of about 3,794,066 square miles. The United States is situated between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, bordered by Canada to the north and Mexico to the south. The nation's capital is Washington DC.
With a population of about 311,591,917, the United States is also the third most populous country in the world. Almost 79% of the entire American population lives in urban areas. New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Phoenix are the five most populated cities of the United States. While the United States is a diverse nation, the majority of Americans are descended from European immigrants, and African Americans are the largest minority group, followed by Asian Americans.

The United States is a federation of fifty states and one federal district, Washington, District of Colombia. Forty-eight of the fifty states make up the contiguous United States, and Alaska, while still part of the North American continent, is separated from the lower forty-eight by Canada. The fiftieth state, which entered the union most recently, is Hawaii, a chain of islands located in the Pacific Ocean.

The United States also possesses five major unincorporated overseas territories: Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands in the Caribbean, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands in the Pacific.
