US started 1789 with a debt of $75M, a ratio of debt to GDP of 31% (as against today's ratio of 52%). The Govt paid off the debt until 1835 when President Jackson reported to Congress that "all that remains of the public debt has been redeemed," and then revealed that the Treasury actually had a surplus of $19M.
