The '''United States of America''' ('''USA''') is a country on [[Earth]] in their North American continent, south of [[Canada]] and north of [[Mexico]]. Their chief of state is the [[President of the United States|President]] who is elected on four year terms. At the time of the discovery of the [[Stargate]], the United States was militarily, economically, and politically the most powerful [[Tau'ri]] nation and its leadership of the [[Stargate Program]] gives it the greatest influence on Tau'ri interactions with alien races. The United States was the first to make contact with extraterrestrial human and alien civilizations and the first to develop an interstellar military capability, followed a few years later by the other four permanent members of the [[Earth]]-based [[United Nations Security Council]]. As of 2009, the United States possesses a majority of the existing [[BC-304|''Daedalus''-class battlecruisers]], giving them, by far, the most powerful Tau'ri starfleet. Only two of its planetary rivals, [[Russia]] and [[China]], have attained comparable firepower.
