But - possibly - the United States 'ARE' (since there is more than one
state/country in the Union) - though I admit that I usually say "the US
'IS'..."

Florida is just as much a state as France, and Louisiana is just as much a
state as Lichtenstein..... (and we'll all be in the United States of Europe
soon :~)
