Americans, or American people, are citizens, or natives, of the United States.

The country is home to people of different national origins. As a result, Americans do not equate their nationality with ethnicity, but with citizenship.With the exception of the Native American population, generally all Americans or their ancestors immigrated within the past five centuries.

Despite its multi-ethnic composition, the culture held in common by most Americans is referred to as mainstream American culture, a Western culture largely derived from the traditions of Northern and Western European immigrants. It also includes influences of African-American culture. Westward expansion integrated the Creoles and Cajuns of Louisiana and the Hispanos of the Southwest and brought close contact with the culture of Mexico. Large-scale immigration in the late 19th and early 20th centuries from Southern and Eastern Europe introduced a variety of elements. Immigration from Asia, Africa, and Latin America has also had impact. A cultural melting pot, or pluralistic salad bowl, describes the way in which generations of Americans have celebrated and exchanged distinctive cultural characteristics.

In addition to the United States, Americans and people of American descent can be found internationally. As many as three to seven million Americans are estimated to be living abroad, and make up the American diaspora.

This fundamental different : Americans do not equate their nationality with ethnicity, but with citizenship.

is the reason for the United Stars of the Galaxies to be "United Stars" . Sarans ,Pan Sarans and United Earth believes that this fundamental equation should be the core of the United Stars...its Citizens.
