OK, for all those saying that America isn't a country, it is. It definitely is. North/South America are continents but America with no prefix is commonly accepted as a short form term for United States of America. People don't call North/South America in short America. EVER.

Yeah... I'm pretty sure there is no such thing as "South and North America" it's just one big continent called America, and then there's The united states that call their citizens "americans" instead of calling themselves staters or some other ****.

Actually some countries consider North and South America just one country and call it America
ex:one of those countries its mexico

But here in the US we split the continent in two, but we still as a whole call it the Americas.

Actually, by it's definition, the USA is really 50 smaller countries all in an alliance with eachother to form a seperate union from Europe.

Essentially they are 50 united states of the continent of America.

Um no, the Civil War put that myth to rest, each state (ahem, STATE, not country) is under the U.S. flag. The only state that was ever a recognized nation was Texas, unless you count Hawaii, but ehhh.

Definition of "State": A body politic, especially one constituting a nation (synonym - country)
