The most generous country in the world...sometimes too generous in my opinion.
US:What's wrong world?
World:(crying and sniffling) My kitty died! :-(
US: That's unfortunate. Here's a couple hundred million dollars my hardworking citizens paid. I was gonna spend it on education and defense and whatnot, but you need it more.
World:(takes the money) Cheapass! (spits in US's face)

A country with citizens who take themselves and their country way too seriously.

Most people will agree that a country is only a symbol and that what it entitles is its population. And what is "population"? A group of diverse human beings.
What makes the United States different from Belgium? Very little. Its policies and laws may be slightly different, and some cultural and traditional aspects are obviously original to each country.
But apart from that, very little seperates them both. Or from any other country for that matter. Our needs and desires are the same.

So why on Earth are so many people debating the topic?!? Many Americans seem to puff themselves up by imagining that the whole world despises them and is continuously plotting either against them, or at least thinking evil thoughts about them.
Think. Again.
I've lived in Asia, Europe and the US. My father is African and my mother European, and I grew up in a French system. I've been surrounded by different people from different cultures since birth.

I can promise you: we aren't continuously fretting about Americans.The only time we really discuss them is when we read the paper or watch TV, ie through the media, and we only really ponder the effects the government's ideas will have on other countries. There isn't any American-bashing.

Therefore please stop victimizing your nation or yourselves. Nobody (in the Western world, in any case) really, sincerely, cares.
US citizen: Why does the whole world hate the United States of America? We haven't done anything wrong!
European: Umm... no. Not the whole world. The only European you'll find bashing the States is an immature adolescent who needs to sound clever by hating some political figure, and doesn't read the paper so picks the only country he/she knows a little about.

A great country that is heavily stereotyped, (just like every other country), contains 50 mostly good states, has one of the largest populations, has territories all around the world, and was founded on July 4, 1776 due to the writing of the Declaration of Independence followed by the American Revolution. Urban Dictionary probably isn't the best source to get information about it. For a more in-depth and unbiased opinion, look on Wikipedia
The United States of America is the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Also known as America, USA, United States, or The States; it is often the center of stereotypes and misunderstanding.

No. Not everyone in the country is fat. In fact, Germany has more overweight people than the United States.

No. Not everyone is arrogant and self-centered. Just like every single effing country on the planet, America has it's share. But many many people are kind hearted and thoughtful

No. Not everyone is a gun-toting crazy bastard. The United States may be high in crime, but there are more than 300 million people spread through out the country. Many foreigners come to America thinking they'd have the freedom to take someone else's freedom away.

No. Not everyone is stupid. Without America, you wouldn't have the internet you are on right now. Without America, planes wouldn't be as developed, or even invented. The US has a mix of millions of people from around the world: their knowledge combined.

Yes. The United States is having some financial problems. So is everyone else! Give the country a break! Only being 235 years old, already being a superpower, and fighting in 2 World Wars, you have to give them some credit. The countries in Europe existed for thousands of years. They had thousands of years to get their government in check.

The United States of America has come very far. The people have different cultures in different areas; from New England, to California: everything and everyone is different. Don't judge on stereotypes.
"The United States of America sucks. I'm moving."
"Why?"
"Everyone is fat, stupid, and lazy!"
". . . So are a bunch of people in Canada, Europe, and Asia."

A beautiful nation, with many diverse people living together. The fact that we can openly critisize and make rediculous claims about the government freely is what makes USA such a wonderful nation. Many people bash America as it seems the "cool" and "popular" thing to do. Ofcourse America isn't perfect, but it's going well, and has been doing tremendously--especially for it's youth. America fought a long battle against racism, and everyone's rights are equal and protected, yet there is still underlying racism among some people.
The United states of america, despite it's problems, has many diverse citizens, and is overall a great country for anyone to visit.

When referring to the USA, it refers to a country that supports intellectual terrorism with it's anti-circumvention laws, region locks, RIAA, MPAA, ESA, corporate double-dipping, charging for a television broadcast ,software patents, and the shutting down of merchants that sell mod chips.

The only freedom of religion in the USA is freedom from religion.

Bush sends his own kind to die in a war for oil--if you happen to be an atheist, you are allowed to think that it's a 'my god can beat up your god' war.

The tax code is the most complicated of any industrialized nation.

The USA is the place where unborn children go to die against their will.

Like a heroin addict looking for his next fix, the USA has to start wars with other countries.

Do-gooders force their ways on others to eliminate violence/profanity in the fantasy world.

You can sodomize your husband, but it's illegal to have another wife to hug.

Hate crimes towards immigrants.

The war on drugs...need I say more?
Friends don't let friends limit their freedom in the United States Of America.

A Christian in the United States Of America is treated like a shedding cat in a room full of people allergic to cats.

A nation consisting of 98% intellegent, decent, hard working individuals who are easy to work with or talk to and make pleasant company. Unfortunately, 2% are ethnocentric, racist, and very loud, thereby giving a huge black eye to the balance of the polulation. The second largest country by land mass in the western hemisphere. Currently being repeatedly humilated by the lies and corrupt practices of thier leadership.
I like the United States of America, but I wouldn't want to live there.
