The United States of America, colloquially referred to as the United States (short form: U.S.A.), is a country primarily located in North America.

In the Armaverse, the United States Armed Forces represent the nation's federal military forces. It consists of five specific branches:
As of 2039, at least three presidents have been named in the Armaverse:
His administration authorised the delivery of covert arms shipments to Nogovan anti-Soviet partisans. He would later commit to an expansion of the U.S. presence in the region with the reinforcement of the garrisons on Malden and Everon.
|«||Meanwhile, tensions appear to have eased on the island of Everon, cause of so much speculation over the past few days, with American forces reportedly engaging hostile troops of unknown origin.
In an official statement, the Secretary of Defense revealed that a US training camp on the island had been attacked by a small group of lightly-armed terrorists, led by a disgraced former General of the Russian army. US military sources stated that the assault was a poorly-planned, publicity-seeking maneuver by an extremist organisation, which was easily resisted by American troops.
There were no significant casualties.
Post-crisis, news networks unknowingly report on a covered up version of the events
In the aftermath of the 1985 flashpoint, he coordinated with then-General Secretary of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, to cover up the incident. The documents detailing the events of the conflict would not be declassified until June 22nd, 2001.
However, peaceful relations between the two leaders did not last long, as another conflict would again break out on the island of Everon four years later in 1989 for unknown reasons.
U.S. forces would continue to remain in the country until late 2007. The president would then agree to the demands of the newly-installed Queen to have all U.S. military forces be withdrawn by the end of October 2007.
An unnamed president would deploy a contingent of U.S. Marines to the Green Sea nation of Chernarus, following the outbreak of a civil war between Chernarussian government forces and pro-Russian separatists in the province of South Zagoria.
The U.S. deployment, in support of the Chernarussian government-in-exile, was not sanctioned by the United Nations and was fervently opposed by the Russian government. The deployment was temporarily withdrawn on October 16th, 2009, but an official UN-sanctioned mandate would be approved by the UN Security Council several days later.
Post-Operation Arrowhead, McKain's administration would oversee the NATO troop surge as part of Operation Crimson Lance. This would be followed with the drawdown and subsequent withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Takistan by the end of 2013.
By the late 2030s, a president named Dennison holds the Oval Office. Dennison is a demagogue who was elected solely on his populist rhetoric at a time of widespread isolationist and anti-interventionist sentiments amongst the American public.
|«||Flooding in China, the worst droughts on record in Australia and now here at home - how long will Dennison dismiss reality as left-wing nonsense and "poppytalk"? Our future and the future of our children is being savaged in the most extraordinary manner. The clock is ticking and we are still not listening.
Senator Raymond Givens
His administration vehemently denies the existence of climate change in spite of objections from members of his own Republican Party. He established a hand-picked group of federal "scientists" who openly publish misleading, non-scientific "reports" countering the consensus that burning fossil fuels harm the planet.
In addition, his administration has enacted multiple domestic and foreign policies aimed at withdrawing the U.S. from the NATO alliance and global institutions; namely, the retraction of U.S. commitments to the 2020 Amsterdam Agreement. All of these heavy handed policies have mostly backfired however, and have instead become a detriment to the United States' security and international standing at a time of heightened tensions with the Chinese-led CSAT coalition.

Responding to criticism against his administration's anti-climate change policies, Dennison posts a chirrup on June 13th, 2039
Dennison is notorious for his social media posts on the Chirrup platform. His posts largely consist of incoherent ramblings and self-congratulatory one liners, and are filled with basic grammatical errors. He insults his opponents by assigning them juvenile nicknames such as "Gimmie Givens" (in reference to Republican Georgia senator Raymond Givens) and, when contradicted by fact checkers with evidence, simply dismisses them as being "Fake".
At least two members of the Senate are known to hold office as of 2039:
- Raymond Givens
- A member of the Republican Party, Givens is a representative for the state of Georgia.
- Givens is one of his party's nominees for the upcoming 2040 presidential election, challenging incumbent President Dennison for leadership.
- Although he is not explicitly isolationist, Givens is staunchly opposed to foreign interventions, and has argued in favour of minimising U.S. involvement in NATO.
- In stark contrast to the rest of the Republican Party, Givens is not ignorant to the realities of climate change and recognises its impact on national security. He has openly stood alongside his counterparts in the Democratic Party to lambast Dennison's attacks against scientific institutions/agencies, along with his overt attempts at undermining climate policies.
- Robert Hammer
- A U.S. Army veteran, Hammer entered politics in the years after the Malden Islands Crisis. At the time of being discharged from the military, he had attained the rank of Lieutenant.
- He regularly partakes in commemorations to honour the memory of U.S. troops killed in the conflict. His most recent participation was on August 18th, 2035, on the 50th anniversary of the flashpoint's resolution.
