The United States of America is made up of several states that run their own systems of governance, but of course, there is an overall governing body for the entire country as well. With a country as big as that, this kind of political system works.
Regarding its geography, America is such a vast land that not even Americans themselves have roamed around their entire country, let alone their entire subregion -- or even their own state, for that matter. You can only travel as much as you can, depending on what you do for a living anyway. It also costs a lot of money to go around and travel on a whim. Those who travel because their jobs require them to are such lucky ones! They can sightsee the various offerings of each state while doing their job! Cool, huh?
For the rest of us folks who don't have most of those luxuries, we can always find ways to have fun. So, for starters, let's play this game, shall we? Let's see if you know all of the capitals of the states. Ready for this? Go go go!
