The United States of the Americas is a historic hyperpower on Earth. It dominated all other Earthly states in every sphere of activity. Such as military, culture and economy. The capital city was Washington, D.C. This location was replaced by Olympus Village on Mars in the 3rd millennium. It is the predecessor of the galactic superpower known as the Federation. The name can be abbreviated to USA.
At the end of the apocalyptic World War 3 (2044-2055 AD) the United States of the Americas dominated Earth. Due to the massive damage on the planet, corporations stepped in to rebuild human civilization. All remaining countries after World War 3 gradually joined it and it was renamed to the Federation of the United States and later The Federation so that it had no reference to the historic hyperpower which was an obstacle for the last countries to join.
The name of the United States of the Americas implies that it comprised the totality of the continents of North and South America. The Americas encompasses most of the land in the Western Hemisphere on Earth. The total area is 42,549,000 km2 (16,428,000 mi2). It covers 8% of Earth's total surface area and 28.4% of its land area. This makes the Americas 4.2 times bigger than Europe.
