North or South America is a country? :-)

I guess they meant the USA is an important country.

In Hungarian there is no abbreviation for the USA. It's called 'Amerikai Egyesült Államok' buy that's too long, sometimes we say 'USA' (pronounced ʊʃɑ) but that's foreign, so most often people just say Amerika when referring to either the country or the continent. The context usually makes it clear which.

As Pierre Trudeau put it:

Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is affected by every twitch and grunt.

It is not a country. It is a continent, two to be precise. The usa are a nation
