Sometimes, they don't.  For example, in extremely rural parts of the
United States, the mail isn't delivered; instead, you need to go to the
post office to pick it up.

Even in less-rural parts, there are places that don't have addresses.
For example, in Spokane County, something is only required to have an
address if it's considered "addressable property" (roughly, a habitable
structure). If I want to send something to the water tank out by
Palisades Park, I need to identify it in some way other than an address.
