becuz it's just like the US....states combined into one country....only in the UK it's kingdoms instead of states.....
England is just England....but UK is England, Wales, Scotland and northen Ireland....if I'm correct


I don't exactly see the areas in Britain as Kingdoms, more like counties. But WAIT! America has those! Meh, same reasons for both sides, Combined Areas and a single ruler.

good question see there is many reasons we dont know why they are called by that but aabout united States trying to steal the America for themselfs then thats not fair for the other countries of America


Apart from South America, I don't see any other country in the world that shares the same name. :U

It's called America as a whole, don't forget. Or Torndao Alley. =I



yea i know that but like at school how do they teach you the names if the countries in the American country to they all called them America because i dont think so if you see at school iof they point a country they call it by their name but if they point at United States then its called America so what the futch is that they should called it United States

Education systems all around the world are different. That's just the American way I guess.

United States or just America. I refer to America as America. But being a Californian, it may sound biased. :U

Mainly because in general, people will love their homeland. In most cases. Variations of names just spark up from anywhere. But I'm Californian, and not ashamed of it. :>
