The American Constitution was the first complete written national constitution. But the Greek had constitutions on the old-time, when their cities were states. The old cities had governments and written constitutions. Like the Athenian Constitution, which was written by Aristotle in 350 B.C.E. And don't forget about Plato's paper on the republic.

A lot of current math is from Europe, by mathematicians like Erdos, Laplace, Fourier, Lagrange, Descartes, Newton, Babbage, Riemann, Euler etc.
But a lot of people don't know that also Arabian, Japanese, Indian and Chinese math was also very well developed at same time. One of the greatest mathematicians ever was Ramanujan, a mathematician from India. He taught himself mathematics and did an immense contribution to mathematics and number theory in special.

A reason why most scientific breakthroughs have taken place in the US is because the US stimulates scientific research more than most European countries do. This is also one of the reasons why European scientists go to the US. European scientists like Einstein, Mandelbrot, Dijkstra did great contributions to science, but most of those contributions was done at American research centres.
