Most of you are American. I can safely say that, because more than 50% of the readers of this blog are American. In 2014, Americans made up around 60% of the readers. So, chances are you’re American. If not, forgive me. I’m not American, either.
This is the first post in a new series where I explore each country that my readers come from, starting with the biggest and going down to the smallest. However, I need your help. I’m going to provide the most basic information that you can find, but I want opinions from you.
Are you American? Have you lived in the United States? Or have you visited the United States? Even if you aren’t, please read on.
The United States of America
It’s a big country. With an area of 9,857,306 square kilometres, it’s the third largest country in the world. It has a population of 320,061,700, which is also third in the world. The capital city is Washington, D.C. The largest city is New York City, with a population of 8,405,837 (metro 19,949,502). English is the most common language, although not official. The country became independent on July 4, 1776. The leader of the country is the President (currently Barack Obama) and it’s a federal presidential constitutional republic.
The United States is so big, every region has many different things to see, do, and eat. So, I’d like your help. If you’re American, lived in the USA, or visited the USA, please answer the following questions in the comments below.
- What places would you say are the best to visit?
- What would you say is the truly American food?
- What is a truly American activity, sport, or pastime?
- For the readers out there, who is/was the greatest (or your favourite) American author?
Thank you very much. If you can, please share this. I’d like to get many great answers. Also, as a stereotypically Canadian thing to do, I apologise for all of the British spelling.
