The name "United States" is used when speaking positively about the country. "America" is used when speaking negatively about the country. Just my observations.

For negative definitions on this country, see America.
Compare these two sentences:

"The United States is a country that tries to do good in this world."

"America is the most messed up and oil-hungry nation on the planet."

A country of freedom...and stuff...and...Okay *laughs*

Let me put it strait for you. Were not the worst country in the world...sort of...

Sure we have a pretty curropt gorvernment but lets be honest, who the hell doesn't?

Yeah we think europe is a country...stupidly often...

Wait is it a country? *looks in "Our Dumb World" Atlas* Okay it is confirmed to me it is NOT a country.

Sure we have a more extremist religion ideology than Rome ever will but hey it's...just an idea right? What's the harm of... an... ide-

ANYWAY! HEY! We were founded on freedom! Even though...pretty much all of the countries in Europe have it too. Including Japan...Canada...and a few.. others. But! We were first! I think. Even though blacks were slaves and women were... Nevermind.

Okay fine were pretty bad... and stupid... and hypocritical... and taking credit where it isn't due...

But lets be honest were better than places like Africa and the middle east.

Even though it's stupid to compare them becuase they're both massively different...

You know what? Fuck you, I'm out of here!

This is a strong nation with proud people, as well as great culture and diversity. This country also a rich military history. The following is a list of almost every armed conflict that the United States has ever been involved in.
-Revolutionary War: 1775-1783
-War of 1812: 1812-1815
-Black Hawk War: 1832
-Seminole War: 1841
-Mexican War: 1846-1848
-American Civil War: 1861-1865
-Spanish-American War: 1898
-World War I: *1917-1918
-World War II: *1941-1945
-Korean War: 1950-1953
-Vietnam War: 1965-1975
-Operation Desert Storm/Gulf War: 1990-1991
-War in Kosovo: 1998
-Operation Anaconda: 2001-2002
-Operation Iraqi Liberation: 2003-Present

*-Not when the war actually began; this actually displays the dates from how long the United States was involved in the conflict.
The only two wars that the United States could never claim a victory for would be the Korean War, since it ended in a cease-fire and stalemate; and the Vietnam War, because we were gradually pushed back and finally withdrew from the country at Saigon, the largest city in non-Communist southern Vietnam at that time (1975).

The greatest nation in the entire planet. Just because we have not passed laws and amendments promoting and legalizing every single thing, it doesn't mean our government is a fascist dictatorship. So we don't allow gay marriage and dangerous drugs like ecstacy or cocaine. Big deal.
This massive country consisting of 50 states and over 280 million people is divided into several regions, and every single race and ethnic group resides within the United States of America. Every kind of religion and language is found in different parts of this fine country.
The regions include New England and the Mid-Atlantic States in the Northeast; The Deep South, Upper South (Tennessee/southernmost third of Kentucky), and the Lower Mississippi Valley in The South; The Ohio River Valley, Great Lakes States, the Upper Mississippi Valley, and the Northern Plains in The Midwest; The Rio Grande Valley, the Southern Plains, the Rocky Mountains, The Sonoran and Mojave Deserts, Lake Mead, and Los Angeles and San Diego metropolitan areas in southern California, all part of the Southwest; The Rocky Mountains sprawl over roughly six consecutive states, and extends well up into Canada. Finally, the Cascade Mountain Range, Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helen's, and the Snake and Wilamette River Valleys make up the Pacific Northwest. The states of Alaska and Hawaii are located very far off the mainland of America. Alaska is adjacent to the western border of Canada and near the Arctic Ocean, while Hawaii is composed of a series of islands surrounded by the waters of the Pacific Ocean.
The United States is one of the greatest and most diverse nations on Earth.
