Forget duo for a moment and whether your answer was "right" or "wrong;" its inconsistant. Can any native speakers explain when/whether to include "los" before "estados unidos"? To respond to someone above: in English the "the" is always included before "United States;" it sounds awkward to leave it out.
In Spanish, most pronouns are implied by the verb conjugation. "Soy" is the conjugation of the pronoun "I" in the verb "ser" (to be).
Yo soy - I am el es - he is ella es - she is usted es - you are tu eres - you are (informal) nosotros somos - we are ellos son - they are
Since the pronoun can be inferred from just the conjugated verb, it is left out in most casual writing and speaking.
