United States of America
The United States of America is comprised of 50 states and is situated primarily in North America. It shares land borders with Canada (to the north) and Mexico (to the south), and territorial water boundaries with Canada, Russia, the Bahamas, and numerous smaller nations. It is otherwise bounded by the Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea, in the west; the Arctic Ocean, in the northernmost areas; and the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea, in the eastern and southeastern areas.

The United States are divided into three distinct sections:
• Continental United States also known as "the Lower 48" and more accurately termed the conterminous, coterminous or contiguous United States
• Alaska, an exclave, which is physically connected only to Canada
• the archipelago of Hawai'i, in the central Pacific Ocean

The climate varies along with the landscape, from tropical in Hawaii and southern Florida to tundra in Alaska and atop some of the highest mountains. Most of the South experiences a subtropical humid climate with mild winters and long, hot, humid summers whereas most of the North and East experience a temperate continental climate, with warm summers and cold winters. Rainfall decreases markedly from the humid forests of the Eastern Great Plains to the semi-arid shortgrass prairies on the high plains abutting the Rocky Mountains. Arid deserts, including the Mojave, extend through the lowlands and valleys of the southwest, from westernmost Texas to California and northward throughout much of Nevada. Some parts of California have a Mediterranean climate. Forests line the windward mountains of the Pacific Northwest from Oregon to Alaska.
