The name of the country[edit | edit source]
Despite being a plural, the name United States is usually treated as singular.
It’s often referred to as “America" - though not without potential geographic ambiguities. The demonym is “American", though this does not translate well to some other languages, where America is referred to by the equivalent of *“United Statesian.”
