The Federal Government of the United States (U.S. Federal Government) is the national government of the United States, a federal republic in North America, composed of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and several island possessions. The federal government is composed of three distinct branches: legislative, executive, and judicial, whose powers are vested by the U.S. Constitution in the Congress, the President, and the federal courts, respectively. The powers and duties of these branches are further defined by acts of Congress, including the creation of executive departments and courts inferior to the Supreme Court.

A NERO Soldier in action

In the events of Days Gone, the US Government ordered the National Emergency Response Organization, or N.E.R.O, to intervene and contain the infection. While NERO remains active even two years after the outbreak, it is unknown to what extent the rest of the Government remains operational, besides possibly the United States Armed Forces.

It is insinuated that NERO is controlled by higher officials somewhere else. Their connection to the US Government is unknown, but they are probably somehow connected with the Department of Homeland Security or the Department of Defense.
