holly shit where to start...?
pros: big ass country with amazing landscapes, huge cities, wilderness etc... hollywood, music, your short history is kinda interesting, pretty good living standard, in some segments a fairly organized country. so your influence in culture is huge. unlike the majority, i love baseball and your other sports that are not played that much in europe. also nba is the best basketball league in the world, love watching it. many players from my country play in nba like nurkic, bogdanovic, bjelica, dragic, vujacic, teletovic, marjanovic, hezonja, saric and probably the jokic, also soon bogdanovic bogdan will come. not to mention former players that have played in nba... all in all very nice people and really important in world culture.
you have many other pros, but lets move on to cons
cons: your president, your way of choosing a president aka the voting system, a shame bernie was out voted by clinton and trump, that makes me think the majority is brainwashed/dead or payed to vote for them or just plain dumb. mass shootings and crimes... school shootings... you fucked the world up by trying to make world peace and freedom (ofc you didnt do it by yourself, but you had the most influence). never enough oil for you.
i could go on with the pros and cons, but lets make a conclusion.
i will dived the rating in 2 cases. 1st as a non american and 2nd as an american.
non-american rating: 8.5/10 (cons are mostly war crimes or causing war)
american rating: 7.5/10 (cons are the crimes with-in the country, children safety and the president)
this was a really difficult decision to make and its kinda specific. maybe for someone america is a 10/10. but this was my opinion of it.
