US States

United States United States of America officially consists of 50 states and District of Columbia. Each state in the US is a separate entity that shares sovereignty with federal government. Because of this sovereignty, an American is a citizen of both of the federal entity and of his or her state of domicile. State citizenship is very flexible, and no government approval is required to move between states.

The United States Constitution allocates power between the two levels of government in general terms. By ratifying the Constitution, each state transfers certain sovereign powers to the federal government. Under the Tenth Amendment, all powers not explicitly transferred are retained by the states and the people. Historically, the tasks of public education, public health, transportation and other infrastructure have been considered primarily state responsibilities, although all have significant federal funding and regulation as well.
