Federal Government

Federal means everything to do with the United States of America as a nation, as opposed to state government, which refers to each of the 50 states governing its own affairs. The federal government is centered in Washington, DC. It cuts across state lines, so while the 50 state governments are responsible for a great deal of what goes on in their state, the federal government is generally responsible for things that have an impact at the national level.
