The United Socialist States of America (commonly referred to as the USSA, the United States, or simply America) is a sovereign state located on the North American continent, comprising of a portion of land that borders Canada to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Gulf of Mexico and Mexico to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The United States comprises of 49 subdivisions known as socialist states, 48 of which are contiguous to one another and the last being Alaska, which is isolated from the rest of the states because of its separation by Canadian territory. With an estimated population of 159,451,349 people as of 2015, the United States is the world's eighth most populous country, and with a land area of 9,828,995 square kilometers, the United States is the fourth largest country in the world.
The United States is a unitary single-party representative democracy, in which the unicameral Senate serves as the national legislature. The Communist Party is the vanguard party of the country, of which the General Secretary is the leader of, thus becoming the Premier and the head of state and government of the nation. Embracing a wholly Montdragonist interpretation of communism, the United States continues to allow for a more diverse set of freedoms than most other single-party states may allow, with more support allocated for freedom of speech, press, religion, and assembly as per the unique nature of the country. The United States also purport that these freedoms are protected by law, though in many cases viewpoints considered to be radical are looked down upon by the government. Overall, political freedoms in the country are higher than in most other single-party states, and the practice of democracy is both transparent and considered to be legitimate. The current political system of the country was established by the constitution passed on 8 July 1895, after the Revolution of 1893 overthrew the previous government of the United States.
