Apparently the sentence is incorrect without the 'in' before America. I am obviously missing some gramatical point? Perhaps someone can enlighten me?

In America is in America. Only cities and a few other words omit the in and use the Locative.

Thanks, I think I'm beginning to recognise the logic from the many wrong answers I have had corrected!
