The United States is a VII-tier nation located in North America. Its vast territory, large population, weak neighbors, and many natural resources make the U.S. the strongest country at the beginning of the game.
America began in the 17th century as a colony of the United Kingdom. Over the years, the colonies grew in wealth and territory and became known as the Thirteen Colonies. In the 18th century, after excessive taxation and poor treatment by the government, the people of the Thirteenth Colonies rebelled and declared the United States an independent nation in 1776. With help from France and Spain, Britain was defeated and the U.S.A. became a sovereign country.
After adopting a constitution in 1787, the United States started becoming an industrial power with increased immigration and industrialization. By the middle of the 19th century, it was a wealthy and strong country. However, the U.S. had tensions between its Northern and Southern states, over the controversial issue of slavery. After the anti-slavery President Lincoln was elected in 1860, the southern states seceded and formed the Confederate States of America. Their actions started the American Civil War, which lasted from 1861 to 1865, and resulted in a Northern victory and the abolition of slavery.
After the Civil War, the power of the United States grew, and it became the strongest nation in North America. Its industrialization, large population, many resources, and democracy made the U.S. a major world power. When World War 1 began, the United States stayed neutral at first, but joined on the side of the Allies after German submarines sank British ships with American travelers.
After the Allies won the war, the U.S. entered an economic boom, the "Roaring 20s", but only years later had its economy collapse into a huge economic crisis, known as the Great Depression. After World War 2 began, the United States remained neutral until Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, an American naval base, prompting the Americans to enter the war on the side of the Allies. After liberating Europe, the US then invented nuclear bombs and dropped them on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, forcing Japan to surrender.
After World War 2, the Democratic USA and the Communist Soviet Union entered the Cold War era, where both superpowers tried to spread their influence throughout the world, and both nations almost went into nuclear war multiple times. The Cold War ended when the Soviet Union fell in 1991, leaving the United States as the uncontested superpower of the modern era. However, its supremacy is now challenged by quickly-developing nations like China and India, and its international influence is slowly decreasing.
