From the Paper:

"A comparison of Japanese and American culture reveals a wide range of societal differences. Japan is a fairly homogeneous, middle class society. In contrast, the United States is characterized by increasing ethnic diversity and income inequality. Although different, each country has its share of successes and failures.

One of the distinguishing features of American culture is its numerous subcultures which exist within the macroculture. In the United States, the different subcultures are as follows: age, gender/sex, ethnic or national origin, religion, class, geographic region, urban/suburban/rural location, and exceptionality (disabled, special abilities, etc.). Each subculture has certain aspects in common with the macroculture. All American citizens are members of multiple subcultures. "
