For decades following World War II, the United States was the leading economic and military power in the world. It is still widely regarded as the world's most powerful country, but is no longer considered as dominant as it once was. Today, America is a nation of great diversity. There are thirty-one different ethnic groups with a population of at least 1 million people in the United States. Freedom of religion is written into the constitution and the principle of separation of church and state is intended to protect both. American culture has been strongly shaped by Christianity, but America today is much more secular than it was in the past.
