Economy: Still the world’s largest and most diverse economy, driven by technology, industry, natural resources, agriculture and services. The world’s largest importer; the world’s largest debtor, for both public and private debt, both external and internal. The USA accounts for 25% of the world’s GDP and up to 50% of the world’s military spending. The world’s most entrepreneurial economy and society.
Religion: Freedom of religion is written into the constitution. The principle of separation of church and state, intended to protect both, is misused by liberal and anti-Christian minorities to attempt to remove the public exercise of religion, while some on the far right continue to advocate something resembling a Christian theocracy.
