America’s development into a nation-state came about by the War of Independence, the action of casting off the parental states governing control ‘Britain’, however, there are still remnants of the British governing system in America’s governmental structures. Their president became an elected king with some other powers of kingdom ship e.g. to go to war, to pardon, friends whether wrongdoers are otherwise, to select a Cabinet of his un-elected. What set the American culture apart from any other culture in history was to experiment with social and commercial values. Abandoning the parental culture meant that America's strongest assets were its resources and commercial potential which was realised by being the largest economy in the world.
