United States, Liberia and Myanmar (Burma) are the three countries that still use the imperial system. United Kingdom uses the imperial system for occasional things like weight, distance and beer sizes. Canada also uses some imperial system because of historical ties with UK, Canada used the Imperial System until the 1970s, opposition to the metric system, the proximity to US and the trade Canada does with the US.
