South Korea and The United States; a Country Comparison By Paige stevenson

The United States and South Korea are very similar, but they are also very different. Both the United States and South Korea let anyone, and everyone vote, but, in the United States, you have to be 18 years old, and in South Korea you have to be 19 years old. Another difference is their types of government. South Korea has a Presidential Republic government, and the United States has a Constitutional Federal Republic government.

Both South Korea and the United States have a type of grain in their main agriculture products; South Korea produces rice and barley, and the United States has wheat, corn, and other different grains. Both countries also have vegetables in their main agriculture products.But, South Korea specializes more in the manufacturing of industries like communicating devices, and transportation devices. While the United States’ industries are more chemical products, like petroleum, and steel (which is a type of iron, which is a chemical). Another similarity between the two countries, are their natural resources. Both South Korea’s and the United States’ natural resources include coal, lead, and molybdenum.

South Korea’s climate is a temperate climate, which is also the same climate type for the United States. Another geographical similarity are their natural hazards. Both have earthquakes, volcanoes, and some type of tropical disaster; South Korea has typhoons, and the United States has hurricane and tsunamis, and besides their tropical disasters, another difference is that the United States has tornadoes as well.

The last thing that I will be comparing between the United States and South Korea, are their current environmental issues. Unlike the United States, South Korea has problems with drift net fishing, and, unlike South Korea, the United States has problems with carbon dioxide in the air from getting fossil fuels, and limited freshwater. Some current environmental issues that both countries share, that they both have air pollution, acid rain, and water pollution.

As you can see, South Korea and the United States are very similar, but they are both very different.
