US Administration

The USA is a Federal Republic with 50 States and the District of Columbia (as in 'Washington, DC'), which lies between Maryland and Virginia.
In addition, the USA has close associations with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam and the US Virgin Islands and exercises trusteeship on behalf of the UN over several Pacific Island groups.
The Constitution (the final arbiters of which are the members of the Supreme Court) ensures that the powers of the executive, legislature, judiciary, presidency and the individual States are balanced by constitutional procedures.

The President is elected by an electoral college system based on universal adult suffrage every four years. No President may be elected to serve more than two full terms of office. The current President is George Bush.
The legislature is bicameral; the Senate has two members from each State while the larger House of Representatives allocates seats on the basis of population. Collectively these two bodies are known as Congress. Each State enjoys a fairly high degree of self-government
