This is a Troll Post. All craftstrollship is of the highest quality. It is decorated with semantic arguments. This object menaces with spikes of troll leather. On the item is an image of two trolls arguing over nothing in troll leather. On the item is an image of a troll redefining words in contradiction of both common and technical usage in troll bone.
It is funny how the original poster does not even call the US by its' proper name. The country's official name is: The United States of America. It is not the United Provinces of America. It is the United States. The US is a federal union of States representing a larger economic and political cooperation. It is really not that much different than the European Union. States that join either the US or the EU continue to be States after joining.
My country has exactly same state system as America though?
Australia is made up of states and territories.
Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australian and Western Australia are all states. Then we the Australian Capital territory and Northern Territory. There are a few more smaller territories, but I wouldn't be able to rattle off the names.
