Easy Answer

“The United States of America”

“The” is an article. In this case it means that there is only one country called “United States of America.”

“United” is an adjective describing “States” meaning that the states are together.

“States” is a noun. A state could be a thing, or a place, or an idea. It is only capitalized when used as part of the name of a specific place.

“Of” is a proposition. The prepositional phrase “of America” means the states are in America.

“America” is a noun. It is a place. It is always capitalized because it is the name of a specific place. “America” includes both continents, North and South America, but people from the USA are “Americans.” America!
