CGP Grey named it an empire, but I could say that it is only big. Well, big enough, given the fact that Romania, my home country, is only as an average US state so…. yeah.
In the video from above CGP Grey presents US and all its territories with the strange laws governing various regions. There are gaps, regions where the locals don’t have a say against the Congress, like DC, or regions that are treated almost as foreign land, like the American Indian Reservations.
But there are also the Organized, Unincorporated Territories, the Unorganized, Unincorporated Territories and the Unorganized, Incorporated and the Compact of Free Association islands. Complicated, eh?
