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."
