The americans don't need overseas territories, they already have a country the size of a continent. The same can't be said about France or the UK.

Level 90
Jan 13, 2020
Israel's capital has been Jerusalem, by law, since 1980. Because many other nations don't acknowledge Israel's sovereignty over Jerusalem, most embassies are in Tel Aviv instead. The US recently moved their embassy to Jerusalem, but not because of a capital change.

The nations of the UK play football as separate entities (or “countries” if you like). England won the world cup in 1966 and STILL go on, and on and on, about it now. Those of us from the other nations of Britain love hearing about it. It never gets boring.

The Constitution only stipulates that the president must be a "natural born citizen".. children born to American citizens overseas are still natural born citizens, as are any children born in the United States regardless of the citizenship of their parents. The media-fed faux controversy about where John McCain was born, or the BS conspiracy theories about where Barack Obama was born, were always in reality a non-issue. (the latter especially, since they weren't even true)

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has territory in every continent on Earth, inhabited or otherwise, naturally all my fellow geography nerds will already know that but still I felt like pointing it out.

I believe our good buddies over in le France have territory in six continents which is impressive also. Viva la France & God save the Queen.
