The frequent glasses has also made some people make America have different eyes in contrast to the other countryhumans, such as T.tazy's AU, where America has pure black eyes due to them not having any culture. If they are drawn with hair it's usually blonde or correlating with their flag.

Personality

Once upon a time, the USA just wanted freedom, that's all they ever wanted, they had a strong sense of justice and even if it was a bit wonky, it was a different era, they had always wanted to show everyone that he was a star a beacon of hope and freedom, and having a strong moral drive, they beat the worlds best military at the time with a group of poorly trained, volunteer citizens (minutemen), and even with their spats they love their family, Canada (best frenemies), Australia, New Zealand, etc, they love them to death.

America is portrayed annoying but very confident. He likes teasing others, but still feel upset for them. He is close with many but can bully them if they feel the need to, and needs a lot of time to calm down. He can tend to overreact, especially when something goes wrong. He does protect ones and himself.

They do show love for their family in many fan fictions, or either hate them. Their ‘true colors’ is when they really just want to fit in and is a friendly guy who's confident and happy to help someone in need, especially protecting them, since they helped stopping WWI and WWII; they believe that they must interfere in the affairs of other countries and their problems in order to keep the peace, sometimes they end up doing harm more than good and end up getting so much hate. However, they're also seen to be from their government/president's view. Meaning, if their government made a choice or speech, he’d be the one to say it or they'd be the one to support it. Despite that, countries still support America, and love him.

Because of that, relations with Russia, China, and especially their allies are tense. A lot of the world has lost confidence in the 45th president of the U.S. but that isn't with Russia. Europeans are worried about the political system, too. Despite all of that, Americans are still popular Worldwide, showing why America is the popular kid or the ‘king’ in school CountryHumans.

America and China tend to get along somewhat, it’s been a tough relationship, and things were only getting tougher when a pandemic came on the hand in 2020. They care a lot on what other people think of them, especially since their image is shaking and is broken. They don't know what to do, they're a world superpower, they needed to fight off China, it was so stressful. America is portrayed as the ‘big kid’ and tough due to them being a world power. They're also shown exhausted, tired, signing an immense amount of paperwork or reading due to that.

They're very proud of his accomplishments yet mostly not portrayed as to show them off too often, they could act greedy or selfish at times, but it's coming from the government more than the country themselves, they still smile about it and glad they accomplished those, yet many of the times they are portrayed not noticing others accomplishments despite being proud to help people.

The colors red, white, and blue did not have meanings for when it was adopted in 1777. However, the colors in the Great Seal did have specific meanings. Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress, reporting to Congress on the Seal, stated:

"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valor, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."[2]

History

America was first known as "New England" (depending on your head-canon, America and New England are different characters).

The American Revolution

The American colonials proclaimed "No taxation without representation." starting with the Stamp Act Congress in 1765. They rejected the authority of the British Parliament to tax them because they had no representatives in the British Parliament. Protests steadily escalated to the Boston Massacre in 1770 and the burning of the Gaspee in Rhode Island in 1772, followed by the Boston Tea Party in December 1773. The British responded by closing Boston Harbor and enacting a series of punitive laws that effectively rescinded Massachusetts Bay Colony's rights of self-government. The other colonies rallied behind Massachusetts, and a group of American Patriot leaders set up their government in late 1774 at the Continental Congress to coordinate their resistance of Britain; other colonists retained their allegiance to the Crown and were known as Loyalists or Tories.

Tensions erupted into a battle between Patriot militia and British regulars when King George's redcoats attempted to destroy Colonial military supplies at Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. The conflict then developed into a war, during which the Patriots (and later their French allies) fought the British and Loyalists in what became known as the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783). Each of the thirteen colonies formed a Provincial Congress which assumed power from the former colonial governments, suppressed Loyalism, and recruited a Continental Army led by General George Washington. The Continental Congress declared King George a tyrant who trampled the colonists' rights as Englishmen, and they announced the colonies free and independent states on July 2, 1776. The Patriot leadership professed the political philosophies of liberalism and republicanism to reject monarchy and aristocracy, and they proclaimed that all men are created equal.

The Continental Army forced the redcoats out of Boston in March 1776, but that summer, The British captured New York City and its strategic harbor, which they held for the duration of The War. The Royal Navy had put blockade on ports and captured other cities for brief periods, but they failed to destroy Washington's forces. The Patriots attempted to invade Canada during the winter of 1775–76 without success, but they captured a British army at the Battle of Saratoga in October 1777. France entered The War as an ally of the United States with a large army and navy. The war then moved to the Southern states, where Charles Cornwallis captured an army at Charleston, South Carolina, in early 1780, but he failed to enlist enough volunteers from Loyalist civilians to take effective control of the territory. Finally, a combined American and French force captured a second British army at Yorktown in the fall of 1781, effectively ending the war. The Treaty of Paris was signed on September 3, 1783, formally ending the conflict and confirming the new nation's complete separation from the British Empire. The United States took possession of nearly all the territory east of the Mississippi River and south of the Great Lakes, with the British retaining control of Canada and Spain taking Florida.

Among the significant results of the American Revolution was the creation of the United States Constitution, establishing a relatively strong federal national government that included an executive, a national judiciary, and a bicameral Congress representing states in the Senate and the population in the House of Representatives. The American Revolution also resulted in the migration of around 60,000 Loyalists to other British territories, especially British North America (Canada).

The American Civil War

In the 34 States in February 1861, seven Southern slave states were declared by partisans to have seceded from the country, and the Confederate States of America was organized in rebellion against the United States Constitutional government. The Confederacy grew to control at least a majority of territory in eleven states, and it claimed the additional States of Kentucky and Missouri by assertions from native secessionists fleeing Union authority, but without territory or population therein; these states were given full representation in the Confederate Congress throughout the Civil War. The two remaining slave states, Delaware and Maryland, were invited to join the Confederacy, but nothing substantial developed due to intervention by federal troops.

The Union and the Confederacy quickly raised volunteer and conscription armies that fought mostly in the South over four years. Intense combat left 620,000 to 750,000 people dead, more than the number of United States military deaths in all other wars combined.

The war effectively ended April 9, 1865, when General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant at the Battle of Appomattox Court House. Confederate generals throughout the southern states followed suit, the last surrender on land occurring June 23. Much of the South's infrastructure was destroyed, especially the transportation systems. The Confederacy collapsed, slavery was abolished, and four million black slaves were freed. During the Reconstruction era that followed the war, national unity was slowly restored, the national government expanded its power, and civil and political rights were granted to freed black slaves through amendments to the Constitution and federal legislation.

World War I

When the war broke out in 1914, the USA decided to be neutral, acknowledging that this war was conflicts between Old World powers that had nothing to do with them. The public opinion about the war was often divided as there were many migrants with ties to both sides. However, when the Germans sank Lusitania in 1915, a passenger ship with 159 Americans on board, the United States' view of the war began to change. It led to the death of 1,198 innocent passengers, including the American ones, so when the United States finally entered the war two years later (in 1917), the cry Remember Lusitania! was used in the recruitment posters and to unite the people against the German Empire-Pictogram.png German Empire.

In January 1917, the British got a secret telegram (known as Zimmerman Telegram) sent by German Foreign Minister Arthur Zimmerman to the German ambassador to Mexico. Where he proposed Mexico's alliance with Germany against the United States, promising them the possibility of acquiring Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. The secret telegram was the last straw, as President Woodrow Wilson delivered a speech to Congress on April 2, 1917, asking them to declare war on Germany. He also said in his speech that the United States would go to war for Fighting For The Ultimate Peace Of The World. On April 6, 1917, the United States formally declared war over the German Empire-Pictogram.png German Empire.

The United States military in Europe was under the command of General John J. Pershing, and at first, he had a few trained troops to send to Europe, though, the Army was quickly built up by project as well as the volunteers. Near the end of the war, there were nearly 2 million American soldiers in France. Thanks to the arrival of the American forces at the right time. The course of the war was diverted in favor of the Allies. Both sides were exhausted and running out of soldiers, but the influx of new forces helped to boost the morale of the Allies and played a crucial role in defeating the German Empire-Pictogram.png German Empire.

After entering the war, President Wilson issued his fourteen famous points. These points were his plans for peace and the goals of the United States in entering the war. He was the only leader who publicly announced his goals in this war. His fourteen points were included in the founding of the League of Nations that he hoped would help to end the war in the future.

After defeating the German Empire-Pictogram.png German Empire, President Wilson pressed his fourteen points for the rest of Europe and the Allies to follow. He wanted all of Europe to recover quickly from the war, including the German Empire, after which both France-Pictogram.png France and the United Kingdom-Pictogram.png United Kingdom differed and then put severe reparations over the German Empire-Pictogram.png German Empire in the Treaty of Versailles, the United States didn't sign it, but he established his own peace treaty with the German Empire-Pictogram.png German Empire.

World War II

At the beginning of the war, the United States didn't want a part of it but, on December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor causing the United States to declare war shortly after the declaration of war on Japan. The Third Reich followed suit. On June 6, 1944, is when operation overlord started, also known as D-Day. It is the most significant landing in history, and the United States was a part of it. From December 16, 1944 - January 25, 1945, was the battle of the bulge a significant fight that the United States was a part of. In 1945, an atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 9, 3 days, later another Atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, putting an end to the war.

Politics

Government

"The Constitution of the United States divides the federal government into three branches to make sure no individual or group will have too much power:

  • Legislative—Makes laws (Congress, comprised of the House of Representatives and Senate)
  • Executive—Carries out laws (president, vice president, Cabinet, most federal agencies)
  • Judicial—Evaluates laws (Supreme Court and other courts)

Each branch of government can change acts of the other branches:

  • The president can veto legislation created by Congress and nominates heads of federal agencies.
  • Congress confirms or rejects the president's nominees and can remove the president from office in exceptional circumstances.
  • The Justices of the Supreme Court, who can overturn unconstitutional laws, are nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.
  • This ability of each branch to respond to the actions of the other branches is called the system of checks and balances." [3]

The Executive Branch consists of the President of the United States, the Vice President, and their cabinet. They are the branch that can create laws, which would pass to the Legislative Branch. The President is the head of state, the government, and the commander in chief for the United States Armed Forces, they have a maximum of two terms, which includes 4 years each. The Legislative Branch is the branch the gets to pass the laws coming from the Executive Branch, they also have the power to accept or deny the nominee to be the head of federal agencies, judges, or the Supreme Court, and has the power to declare war. The Judicial Branch is responsible to interpret laws and see if the law(s) violates the Constitution. They are made of the Supreme Court and many other federal courts, the Supreme Court consists of a Chief Justice and six associate justices. The Justices have no fixed term and can serve as long as they want until they either die, retire, or remove in other circumstances.

Diplomacy

Brazil

Brazil-United States relations have a long history, characterized by some moments of a remarkable convergence of interests but also by sporadic and critical divergences on sensitive international issues. The United States has increasingly regarded Brazil as a significant power, especially in its role as a stabilizing force and skillful interlocutor in Latin America. As a significant political and economic power, Brazil has traditionally preferred to cooperate with the United States on specific issues rather than seeking to develop an all-encompassing, privileged relationship with the United States.

China

The United States Department of State tries to maintain the interests of the Chinese public and its government. However, they try their best to get China to stop international law abuses to get into a compromise with the two.[4] 1971 and 1979, the United States did not recognize the legitimacy of the PRC government and supported Taiwan. Public signs of relations with the PRC and the USA started around 1971, with the Ping-Pong diplomacy, where China's ping-pong team invited the U.S. ping-pong team. The United Nations would soon replace the ROC with the PRC within the same year. It wasn't until 1979 that the United States would stop officially recognizing Taiwan and support the One China Policy. However, relations within the unofficial level would still continue for the United States and Taiwan. Their ties would soon be shaken throughout the Belgrade Bombing (as an accident), with the United States apologizing for the mistake, but Chinese protesters dismissed the apology and vandalized American official property in China. Since 2000, the United States and China are starting normalize trading relations, in 2006, China became the second-largest trading partner after Canada. China would also surpass Japan to become the biggest foreign creditor, which means the United States has to return the debt to China at some point. [5]

Venezuela

United Kingdom

After the American Revolution had ended, Great Britain did establish relations with the United States. The relations broke when the War of 1812 came to be and declared war on the United Kingdom, but their diplomatic relations would soon be reestablished in 1815. The United States considers the United Kingdom as a close ally, ever since 1815, their bong only gets closer between these two.[6] Visits are very common between these two.

Public Views

The People of the United States like the democracy in the nation, but a low percentage suggests that the majority of the people aren't satisfied enough with their democracy. Most Americans also oppose Presidents getting more power, as it is considered "too risky" to give them more power to solve the nation's domestic problems. About a third of the country knows that what president is currently serving can make a big difference in their personal lives, whether it be in a good or bad way. Many people have a favorable opinion towards local politics than national politics, as local politics can help certain problems within their area, and also have much more quality with the candidates than on the candidates for federal elections.[4]

Opinions

Russia

Current Russian-American (government) relations are very sour, but not the people which relationships are quite fine. The two countries during the Russian Empire era were mostly on good terms, Catherine the Great significantly affected the American Revolution through diplomacy; and indirectly helped Americans gain independence, as well as the trade between them that started before the official independence of the USA (even tho RE was neutral during the revolution; they unofficially helped the Americans), plus Theodore Roosevelt had a major role in ending the Russo-Japanese War, but then the repeated anti-Jewish pogroms that took place in Russia in 1880 alienated American elite and public opinion (yet there was no antagonism against RE among American public); escalation of violence against Jews in 1919 led to the USA repealing an 1832-commercial treaty, along with Russia’s withdrawal from WWI, in addition to the US participating in Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War with the Polar Bear Expedition and the American Expeditionary Force Siberia; in 1918; to prevent the Germans from gaining access to war supplies controlled by the Bolshevik; made their relations a bit bad. During the WWII they were allies, however, when it ended they started being hostile toward each other and had their ups and downs, especially during the Cold War, they're starting to get along because of the situation in Syria-Pictogram.png Syria. Russians must understand that the American people want to be friends with Russia, the people aren't the government, America had a complicated relationship since The Soviet Times, over the years, relations have gotten a bit better finally, they're both strong nations, they have embassies in each other's capitals, fight against the virus, terrorism and more, they also fight white supremacy together and their diplomats are working hard to improve their relations.

Spain

Spain is the USA's parent. They enjoy pestering them and calling them 'Mexico' which is another Spanish-speaking country and another one of their children. They dislike this, but since they're their parent, they're close and they love them as a child. Spain founded St. Augustine, Florida; the first oldest city in the United States. Sometimes, France and Spain compare the personality of the United States with that of England in a derogatory tone. However, both countries celebrate Independence Day with the United States due to the military support granted by both countries. Spain is also the biological parent of Alabama-Pictogram.png Alabama, Florida-Pictogram.png Florida, Puerto Rico-Pictogram.png Puerto Rico (with UK), and Alaska-Pictogram.png Alaska (with Russia). Today, the relations between the United States and Spain are one of the firmest, most stable, and optimal in the Western world. Spain is a fan of George Washington. The United States usually remembers Spain whenever they look at a dollar bill. The columns that appear in the dollar symbol are the same as the ones in the shield of Spain.

France

France is the USA's pibling. Another parent. Sometimes even considered biological parent but, in reality, France is the biological parent of Louisiana-Pictogram.png Louisiana, Maine-Pictogram.png Maine, and Mississippi-Pictogram.png Mississippi (with UK). However, even though they're not their actual child, they appear to care for them. France and the USA enjoy teaming up and doing things that the USA' s parent (the UK) does not seem to enjoy, which is how they tend to bond. France constantly has to deal with her nibling's French surrender jokes and has hit them with a history book (usually to the head/face) on multiple occasions because of the USA's humor. Them, it's evident that they sees the UK as frenemy rather than a direct enemy. They seem to see France as some sort of parent, possibly as some sort of parental figure. They seem to enjoy each other's company. In addition, the USA usually sees France as a parent figure (Probably, because the United States acquired the republican ideals of France).

Australia

Japan

"We were tense in the past, however, things are better and they're a great friend to me! I like their culture, however, sometimes it does weird me out a bit".

USA's thoughts on Japan

Japan and America shared tense relations in the past. This is because, during the times of the Japanese Empire, America had atomic bombed Japan. They try to forget the brutality of it, and nowadays, they're better of as friends. The USA thinks of Japan's culture very highly. Though sometimes, they're a little weirded out by Japan's anime obsession. Their relationship is more of a friend-to-friend relations as both see each other as allies and trading partners.

South Korea

"They're great! My prediction was wrong when I said that the birth of democracy in Korea is the blooming of roses in the trash can. They were the poorest countries, but now they are the richest developed countries. Our people like each other. As long as his brother and him don’t reunite, we will be on good terms.

Philippines

"You’re a major ally and helped me out in several wars. I will be there to repay your debt that I owe you."

United States’s thoughts on the Philippines

Both of the countries see each other as great and major partners and deeply supported each other. They even describe their relationship as a Special Relationship [1]. However, pains from the U.S.'s colonization period of the country are not forgotten, some may consider her as his stepsister and/or adopted/stepdaughter or possibly even his wife.

Malaysia

"You are my tenth largest trading partner and my best Islamic brother compared to others! Though he was a friend of China".

United States’ thoughts about Malaysia

The USA is Malaysia's largest trading partner, while Malaysia is the tenth-largest trading partner. Both of them always join the UN peacekeeping mission together. Malaysia once helped the USA rescue US Ranger that was supposed to rescue the pilot of 2 downed Black Hawk during the Battle of Mogadishu.

New Zealand

"W-Who? Ohhhh! That shortie? Yeah I and them don't know each other well enough to get along really well, though, they're a good sibling and I do like their bird".

USA thoughts about New Zealand

Venezuela

"Why you hate me? The only thing I want is to help you get out of your crisis! You don't think I'm interested in your oil, do you? Besides, stop bothering them to cut off relations with me! Ungrateful socialist".

USA thoughts about Venezuela

Georgia

Georgian–American relations continue to be very close and encompass multiple areas of bilateral cooperation. As a key U.S. ally in the war on terror, Georgia was the third largest troop contributor in the Iraq War and is currently the largest per-capital contributor to the U.S. led mission in Afghanistan. The United States for its part is actively assisting Georgia in strengthening its state institutions in face of increasing pressure from its northern neighbor Russia and has provided the country with financial assistance in excess of 3 billion dollars since 1991. Since 2009, Georgian–American relations are streamlined by the U.S.–Georgia Charter on Strategic Partnership, which created four bilateral working groups on priority areas of democracy; defense and security; economic, trade, energy issues, people-to-people and cultural exchanges.

Georgia in 2004-2008 sought to become a member of NATO, but did not succeed in the face of strong Russian opposition. In February 2012, it was agreed that the U.S. and Georgia will start working on a Free Trade Agreement which, if materialized, will make Georgia the only European country to have such treaty with the United States. American citizens visiting Georgia currently do not require a visa for entry. Citizens will receive a 90-day tourist visa at the country's entry points.

According to the 2012 U.S. Global Leadership Report, 51% of Georgians approve of U.S. leadership, with 15% disapproving and 34% uncertain.

The United States works closely with Georgia to promote mutual security, counter-terrorism interests and provides Georgia with bilateral security assistance, including English-language and military professional training, through the International Military Education and Training (IMET) program.

The multi-year Georgia Train and Equip Program (GTEP) ended in 2004, achieving its intended goals of enhancing Georgia's military capability and stimulating military reform. Launched in January 2005, the Georgia Entertainment and Stability Operations Program has advanced GTEP's goals and trained the Georgian contingent participating in coalition operations in Iraq. Partnership with the Georgia (U.S.) National Guard, visits by the Sixth Fleet, the Coast Guard to Georgia, and the Bilateral Working Group on Defense and Military Cooperation are also important components of American security relationship with Georgia.

Promoting democracy and reform is another strategic pillar of America's bilateral relationship with Georgia. In April 2006, as part of these reforms Georgia passed a strong anti-human trafficking law and has since then ranked consistently among Tier 1 countries of the State Department's report on trafficking in persons, meaning that the country now fully complies with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking.

Georgia hosts 90 Peace Corps Volunteers who work in English Language Education and NGO Development.

Originally the US government freaked out and almost burned every documentation of a soldier using a trench gun. However at the last minute they remembered that the Germans were using flamethrowers and poison gas in the war. So in return they threatened the Germans that if they were to execute any American soldier that had a trench gun in return the Americans would execute all of their German prisoners.
