United states and Canada WHAAAAA???

Yep, you heard me right. United states AND Canada

A few major differences

Although Canada and the United states are both in North America, there are some major differences between the two that are the result of their upbringing and size.

Canada is larger than the United states, Canada is about 9,984,670 km (3,854,085 sq mi) and the United states is 9,850,476 km (3,803,290 sq mi), making Canada about 100,000 km larger than the U.S.

The U.S is divided up into states, which have their own form of government control and laws to follow that vary depending on the state. Canada has provinces, with a Sovereign as head of State and an elected Prime Minister as head of Canada. Government has a federal system of parliamentary government, where federal, provincial, and territorial governments share government chores and carry out jobs. \U.S is a federal presidential constitutional republic, with a president, vice-president, a system of checks and balances, and representatives.

Although bigger, Canada isn't as densely populated as the U.S is. The U.S has about 31 km (80 sq mi) while Canada has 3.4 km(8.3 sq mi). Canada's most populated city has around 2,503,281 people, while the U.S has around 8,363,710 people. The total population of the two countries is a big jump also, because Canada has about 34,082,000 people while the U.S has about 311,416,383 people, which is a huge difference.

The U.S tends to get involved with wars more often than Canada does, and more involved too.

Canada has been involved in Seven Year's War, American Revolution, War of 1812, Second Boer War, First World War, Second World War, Korean War, Cold War, Gulf War, and the Invasion of Afghanistan and those were just a few!

The U.S has been in American Revolution,War of 1812,Mexican War,Civil War,Indian Wars,Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Bay of Pigs, Vietnam War, Dominican Republic, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, Gulf War, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Global War on Terror, Iraq War and many more.

The most popular jobs of 2014 in the U.S was a network systems worker, physicians assistant, medical assistant, medical record and health information technician, software engineer, physical therapist aid, fitness trainer, database administrator, veterinary technician, and dental hygienists.

In Canada, the most popular jobs of 2014 was an in-home nurse, nurse practitioner, programmer analyst, physician and surgeon, teacher, special education, pharmacist, psychiatrist, radiological technician, registered nurse, and physiotherapist.

Who cares? Who actually cares????

Everyone should, that's who should care.

From the evidence gathered, it's easy to see that the U.S and Canada are more connected than everyone thought. They are similar in their colonization and their government, and both seem to be very well developed.

They both have high hopes for the future, as the most popular jobs are middle to high waged and both the U.S and Canada have been working toward a "cure" for homelessness and work to create new jobs and shelters for the unemployed.

Education is very important to both countries, although Canada gets much better rates, coming 6th in the world while the U.S is 21st.

They get into the same fights often, and are usually allies. They have similar views on war, choosing to fight together to stop the oncoming enemy and help protect each other and other countries.

So, to sum all this up, the U.S and Canada are the same in many aspects but are different ways too. But it's our differences that connect us all, and the U.S and Canada are a perfect example of that.
