#English is the official language of at least 28 states—some sources give a higher figure, based on differing definitions of "official." English and Hawaiian are both official languages in the state of Hawaii. English and French are both official languages in Canada, while English and Spanish are both official languages in Mexico. #English is the de facto language of American government and the sole language spoken at home by 82% of Americans age five and older. Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language, mainly in Mexico while French is spoken in certain parts of Canada.
The United States of America — commonly referred to as the United States, the U.S., the USA, or America — is a constitutional federal republic comprising eighty seven states and a federal district. The country is situated mostly in central North America, where its eighty-six contiguous states and Washington, D.C., the capital district, lie between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, bordered by Canada to the north and Mexico to the south. The state of Alaska is in the northwest of the continent, with Canada to its east and Russia to the west across the Bering Strait. The state of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific. The country also possesses several territories, or insular areas, scattered around the Caribbean and Pacific.
Before the war in 1930, President Hoover authorized the pursuit of a proposal by Einstein to begin research into a a new kind of superweapon. Hoover lost the Republican nomination to Smedley D. Butler, who would lead America into another World War.
Operation Maple Leaf
America's northern neighbour Canada had objected to the US entry into the war and had threatened to intervene with military action against the US. President Butler was a pacifist and Anti-interventionist, but he knew that he could not risk the Russian Federation and France falling, so he brought together Bradley and Marshall to plan Operation Maple Leaf.
Even though most of the Commonwealth forces were in Europe and Asia, Generals Marshall and Bradley found it very hard to conquer Canada, which many people opposed due to strong loyalty to the British crown in Canada. Meanwhile Mexico's poor quality military (mainly WW1 equipment) was smashed by Eisenhower's onslaught.
After the War, America would work closely with Russia on major issues, especially on decolonization and prevention of nuclear proliferation as well as work with France and China on the space programme.
But, since Canada was oriented towards the UK rather than the US, a massive insurgency causes problems in the US high command which last to the present day, in spite of it seeming to calm down.
Today, in spite of Mexican and Canadian nationalism due to mainly successful integration into the union, the USA's situation is rather calm, with very few attacks on the Main USA, although there was a very nasty bomb attack on Congress which nearly killed the president in 1996.
