The United States Military (US Military), which was formerly the de facto military organization for the United States, now ceases to be funded by Congress due to disputes between its leadership and Congress.

In April 2010, President Woxan named Dioism the official religion of the United States. Many people have denounced it, opting for atheism or other various religions. Dioism is the longest-lasting religion in eRepublik history. Despite Dioism being controversial at first in America, no presidents have taken steps to remove the official religion, and criticism has since died down.

Major Historical Events
On April 11th, 2008 the war between the United States and Canada commenced, and ended on April 26th. The battlefield statistics are disputed as incorrect, but the fight totals were 719 victories for Canadians to 400 for the USA, with 329 draws. There were 1448 total fights within the war, which was also paused twice due to bugs.
The Invasion of the United States of America
On 15th of July 2009, the state of Alaska was invaded by Russian forces. World War III Within 2 months of this event, the United States was down to one region, but under the strategic planning of President Emerick and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Eugene Harlot, America won back six regions, before signing a contract with Portugal, known as the USA-Portugal Treaty. This contract gave them all the originally American, Portuguese-controlled regions. This came after the United States got the Indonesian MPP with the Portuguese to cancel, thus causing the Portuguese front to weaken significantly. Other rumors say the Portuguese were afraid of an invasion of their homeland. America finally succeeded in eliminating all PEACE forces in October of 2009.
The UK-USA War
On February 1, 2010, President Jewitt officially attacked the United Kingdom, thus starting a war that had been fought only with words for months. The next president, Josh Frost, ran the country for most of the war, and he brought the country to the edge of victory, claiming all of the UK's regions except for London. After one failed attack on the capital and fortress state, a peace treaty was signed between Frost and UK Prime Minister GLaDOS, returning all of the UK's original regions. The war is considered a tie because the US conquered most of the UK, but was unable to take the last region.
On August 22, 2010, the US attacked Russia's Far Eastern Russia. Using time zones effectively and proper coordination with EDEN, they won the fight easily. They then went on to attack Eastern and Western Siberia. In the v2 war module, Russia could have attacked FER while battling for ESR, so the US's allies in North Korea attacked FER to block any other battles in the region. The US retreated that region to North Korea, and then China attacked it. When China won, Poland attacked it. Using this strategy for the other two regions as well, America successfully kept Russia from counterattacking, and also swapped their allies into economically important regions in Russia. At the end of the three days of battles and swapping, Poland owned Western Siberia, China owned Eastern Siberia, and America owned Far Eastern Russia, which they renamed .
World War V
In April of 2011 the USA was invaded by joint ONE and aligned forces during World War V. By April 14 the country had been split, isolating both the South and New England from the Mid-West and Western states when Spanish and Mexican forces met at the Mississippi River. During this time Canada would also occupy a number of US states in a Terra-allied effort to prevent ONE expansion into the US homeland. This included the former country capital of Florida. Thereafter the nation's capital would be moved to California. The final remaining region of Hawaii was conquered by Indonesia on 1 July, 2011 only for the USA to return to the map by successfully winning resistance wars in Arizona, which became the nation's capital, and California. Shortly thereafter, the United States pushed invading forces out and proceeded to counterattack removing the ONE presence from North America before going on the offensive in Spain.
