Borders And Powers
Borders and Powers Explained
Every nation has a sovereign government and fixed borders. Often times the borders are based off of a defining physical feature in the geography. Rivers, lakes, seas, mountains, and oceans often provide the means to set up a border. Frequently, in the United States the circumstances are different and the borders are as a result of historical circumstances or political agreements.
History often shapes the creation of national borders especially through the conflict of neighboring states for control of a territory. Both physical and human factors shape borders as well as internal political division.
