The Flag for United States

 
The United States consists of 49 states in North America and one state, Hawai?i, in the North Pacific. Densely populated eastern states cover the Atlantic coastal plain, mostly backed by the low Appalachian Mountains. Central states lie in lowlands drained by the Mississippi river system. The high Rocky Mountains, arid intermontane plateaus, and earthquake-prone coastal ranges occupy the West. Alaska, the largest U.S. state, possesses a vast, rugged terrain, ranging from a mild Pacific coast to a harsh Arctic tundra region. Hawai?i, a group of volcanic islands, enjoys a tropical climate. Most of the U.S. experiences a temperate climate. From its founding as a country, immigration has continued building the U.S. as a multicultural nation. In 2008, the minority population stood at 105 million people 34 percent of all Americans. Whites are about two-thirds of the population, Hispanics 15.4 percent, blacks 13.5 percent, and Asians 5.0 percent. Minority populations tend to concentrate in certain states: California holds the most Hispanics (13.5 million), and they make up 45 percent of New Mexico's population; California also claims the most Asians (5.1 million), but they are a majority in Hawai?i at 54 percent; and New York State has the most blacks (3.5 million), although the District of Columbia achieves the highest proportion at 56 percent. The U.S. declared its independence from Britain in 1776 during the American Revolution. The U.S. Constitution, the world's oldest federal constitution, was written in 1786 and then was ratified by the original 13 states. The new republic expanded westward until the 50th state, Hawai?i, was added in 1959. Immigration, innovation, natural resources, free enterprise, and democracy have all combined to make the U.S. the leading economic power in the world.

82% of American(s) live in urban centers, and 99% can read and write one of the many languages such as English, Spanish, other immigrant and Native American languages. American(s) have an average life expectancy rate of 78 years and most follow the Protestant, Roman Catholic, Jewish, Latter-day Saints religions. 0.6% Agriculture of American(s) work in the agriculture industry which produces , and 22.6% Industry work in the industry producing petroleum, steel, motor vehicles, aerospace, telecommunications, chemicals, electronics, food processing, consumer goods, lumber. Another 76.8% Services work in the services sector such as tourism and retail environments. agricultural products (soybeans, fruit, corn), industrial supplies (organic chemicals), capital goods (transistors, aircraft, motor vehicle parts, computers), consumer goods (automobiles, medicines) are regularly exported to other countries in the world from United States. The Gross Domestic Product per capita is $46,400 with -2.40% annual growth.

United States uses the telephone country code of 1 and internet hosts use the .us suffix. United States uses the Dollar (USD).

Currency


The United States one-dollar bill ($1) is the most common denomination of US currency. The first president, George Washington, The $1 bill is the lowest currency in circulation as of 2012.

The bill is extremely detailed, with the inclusion of the national motto, "In God We Trust," on all currency was required by law in 1955 and first appeared on paper money in 1957. The $1 has been the focus of conspiracy for decades. Conspiracy theorists point to the Eye of Providence on the one dollar bill both as a suggestion that the Freemasons have some extensive and perhaps subversive influence over the founding of the United States and/or American finances and that the dollar bill is linked in some way to the occult.

Some conspiracy theorists suggest that the dollar bill design makes use of the Eye of Providence as an occult symbol, since a design very similar to the Eye of Providence was used in the worship of the sun god Horus in Ancient Egypt. However, designs similar to the Eye of Providence were also used by Christians to represent the Holy Trinity (God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit). Since many early Americans were Christian (including the founding fathers), it is likely that the Great Seal of the United States was designed with this symbolism for this purpose.

Some conspiracy theorists also suggest that the dollar bill has many references to the number thirteen. For example, the pyramid on the dollar bill has thirteen steps, and other instances of the number appear in the Great Seal of the United States and on the dollar bill.
