Considering how many times we have to compare the USA to all 3 of the other countries maybe we should just do Canada vs Australia vs UK.
I think it's valid to compare the US with other countries, it certainly doesn't come top in all areas!

But this poster feels the need to make ridiculous statements, which I'm quiet confident are based on what she's read, rather than experienced.
Its not an opinion its an fact, USA is by far an outlier. population is 300 plus million, far more development, more cities, more various landscapes, larger economy. are any of these false?

Yes, the far more developed one is wrong.

How can America have more cities but less development?

Just look at a satellite image at night if you are having trouble.

Sure is a lot happening East of the Mississippi.

Yes EAST of the Mississippi but west of it population density goes down dramatically. Out of all the Countries the most developed would be the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland not the USA.

Look at the night image of the UK its like one megacity.

the US has no official language my dear.... Each state in America can make languages official or not but not the US

for example new mexico's official languages are english and spanish, louisiana has a special clause for french in which the language is protected, pennsylvania also has something similar with pennsylvanian german.

Don't try to belittle people, its astonishing how you have such superiority when it seems you have little knowledge of the world. The USA is an Anglo Country founded by the British who put down the framework of the Country so that includes Music, Cuisine, LANGUAGE however of course many other cultures around the world contribute significantly to American culture. That's not to discredit the French, Italian, Irish, West African and modern Latin-American influence on the Country.

The national language of the USA is English, many States have English as their national language, many Americans hold cultural items like Apple Pie or Country Music as icons of American culture which both have its roots in British Culture.

Jamaica is a Anglo Country, too (Shock, horror!) an Anglo-Caribbean Country with English the dominate language and many cultural items like Jamaican Patty having roots in British Culture.

As default any Country that has a deep British influence that proliferates the whole Country is an Anglo-Country. By means Canada is not a Anglo Country neither is India...

Are we looking at the same map or talking about the same countries?

That area east of the Mississippi is probably about 8 x larger than the UK.

The "Anglo" label is just not used a lot here in America so it sounds weird hearing people use it.

if you think british culture is the predominant culture in the USA you obviously haven't been in many places around America!

the brits had 13 colonies on the east coast and those colonies revolted went to war with the UK, dumped their tea on the Boston harbor and kicked the brits out of their country.

several decades later they started expanding west absorbing French territory (the whole midwest), several Spanish colonies (Florida, Texas, California), and purchasing land from Russia (Alaska)

how is that the british orchestrating the United states?

By the way country music has its roots in German music I know this because I went to country music museum of nashville TN!

Jamaica sure, I can see Jamaicans being very anglo in their culture with the whole cricket, tea drinking, commonwealth elizabeth the majesty and so on.... but Americans no way!
