Federal government of the United States

The federal government of the United States was formed in the eighteenth century, making the country one of if not the first modern national federations in the world.[1] The details of American federalism have been debated ever since the establishment and ordination of the Constitution. Some parties make the case for expansive federal powers while others argue for a more limited role for the central government with respect to individuals, other recognized entities and states. Since the U.S. Civil War, the powers of the Federal Government have generally expanded greatly, although there have been periods when states' rights proponents have succeeded in limiting federal power through legislative action, executive prerogative or by constitutional interpretation of the courts.[2][3]
The seat of the Federal Government is in Washington, D.C. This has led to "Washington" commonly being used as a metonym for the federal government
