It is bordered by New Hampshire to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec to the north.

Maine is the easternmost state in the contiguous United States, and the northernmost east of the Great Lakes.

It is known for its jagged, rocky coastline; low, rolling mountains; heavily forested interior, and picturesque waterways; and also its seafood cuisine, especially clams and lobster.

The capital is Augusta.

Legislature Confidence: 72% Arrow up

A legislature is a deliberative assembly with the authority to make laws for a political entity such as a country or city.

Legislatures form important parts of most governments; in the separation of powers model, they are often contrasted with the executive and judicial branches of government.

Government Confidence: 71% Arrow up

A government is the system by which a state or community is controlled.

In the case of this broad associative definition, government normally consists of legislators, administrators, and arbitrators.

Government is the means by which state policy is enforced, as well as the mechanism for determining the policy of the state.

Forms of government, or forms of state governance, refers to the set of political systems and institutions that make up the organisation of a specific government.

Governments control the economy, social freedoms, and political systems, and may or may not be voluntary.

Governor (United States) Confidence: 71% Arrow up

In the United States, a governor serves as the chief executive officer in each of the fifty states and in the five permanently inhabited territories, functioning as both head of state and head of government therein.

As such, governors are responsible for implementing state laws and overseeing the operation of the state executive branch.

As state leaders, governors advance and pursue new and revised policies and programs using a variety of tools, among them executive orders, executive budgets, and legislative proposals and vetoes.

Governors carry out their management and leadership responsibilities and objectives with the support and assistance of department and agency heads, many of whom they are empowered to appoint.

A majority of governors have the authority to appoint state court judges as well, in most cases from a list of names submitted by a nominations committee.

Tax Confidence: 70% Arrow up

A tax (from the Latin ) is a financial charge or other levy imposed upon a taxpayer (an individual or legal entity) by a state or the functional equivalent of a state to fund various public expenditures.

A failure to pay, or evasion of or resistance to taxation, is usually punishable by law.

Taxes consist of direct or indirect taxes and may be paid in money or as its labour equivalent.

Most countries have a tax system in place to pay for public/common/agreed national needs and government functions: some levy a flat percentage rate of taxation on personal annual income, some on a scale based on annual income amounts, and some countries impose almost no taxation at all, or a very low tax rate for a certain area of taxation.

Some countries also charge a tax on corporate income, dividends, or distributions—this is often referred to as double taxation as the individual shareholder(s) receiving this payment from the company will also be levied some tax on that personal income.
