Founded in 1776, America is famous for its optimistic idealism, individualistic social structure, and devotion to democracy. The country retains massive ideological and economic influence worldwide, with a global military presence that accounts for a substantial portion of its political power overseas. Its influence is extended by the sheer scale of its cultural exports, with American music, films, television shows, and celebrities all receiving global recognition. And, as the seat of technological innovation, American brands and products predominate at home and abroad.
