Introduction

Located on the North American continent, in addition to several semi-autonomous territories around the world, the United States has land borders with Mexico and Canada. The president, elected every four years, is head of state and of government and has extensive powers, though these are checked by two houses of an elected legislature. While civil and political rights are generally good, major issues remain with the treatment of children in the justice system, the use of the death penalty in some federal states and major differences in outcomes and opportunities for citizens from different racial backgrounds.
