The United States of America 🇺🇸 (USA), commonly known as the United States (U.S. or US) or America, is the country where the Apple Computer Company (predecessor to Apple Inc.) was founded in 1976.


The United States consists of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and various possessions.[1] At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2), it is the world's third- or fourth-largest country by total area,[2] depending on the inclusion of coastal and territorial waters.[3][4][5]

Most of the mainland United States is located in central North America between Canada and Mexico. With an estimated population of over 329 million, the U.S. is the third most populous country in the world. The capital is Washington, D.C., and the most populous U.S. state is California, where Apple is presently headquartered.
