The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.

Decatur is a city in DeKalb County, Georgia, United States. The population was 18,147 at the 2000 census. The city is the county seat of DeKalb County. Decatur is part of the Atlanta Metropolitan Area and public transportation is served by Marta. The city's motto, inscribed on the city seal, reads a city of homes, churches, and schools.

In 1823 Decatur, Georgia was founded at the intersection of two Native American trails. The town was named for naval hero Stephen Decatur. In the 1830s, the Western and Atlantic Railroad wanted to make Decatur the southernmost stop on its railroad. The citizens of Decatur did not want the noise, pollution and growth that would come with such a major terminal, so they rejected the proposal. In response, the railroad founded a new city to the west-southwest of Decatur for the terminal. This town would later become known as Atlanta, Georgia.  Decatur also has a large gay and lesbian population who were attracted by the city's liberal values and close in location to Atlanta.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 10.8 square kilometers, all land. In the city the population was spread out with 20.0 percent under the age of 18, 9.1 percent from 18 to 24, 37.0 percent from 25 to 44, 20.5 percent from 45 to 64, and 13.3 percent who were 65 years of age or older.
Decatur has one of the highest property tax rates in Georgia, much of which goes to support the high cost of maintaining a school system with one of the lowest student and teacher ratios in the State.

Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Decatur enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
