Difference between China and USA

China and United States of America are two very important and leading economic forces in the world today. The history of each of these countries ranges back to somewhere around 12,000 years ago when people first settled into these lands. China is comparatively more ancient then America in terms of recorded documents and artifacts from the past. The name China was attained by that country in 150 AD as a result of combinations from languages in the region. The name of America was with reference to Amerigo Vespucci and was bestowed in 1507. The complete name “United States of America” came to be when it was a British Colony in the 17th Century.


Cultural Analysis

Chinese culture has ancient roots. It is more of an expansion of a civilization that is spread over in the major parts of East-Asia. This civilization has a national or a multinational identity in terms of people.

United States of America is a multicultural location. This is because the locality has majority of the people who are not originally from the region and have migrated from other locations so as to make a stable economic state. It is a combination of various groups, traditions and values. The Native American and the Native Hawaiian populations are the only people who have been locals to the region. The remainder of the population has their ancestors based in other locations around the world.

The folklore as well as non-fiction literature of the region has impressed people world over.
