Is America “it” or “she”?

America was inhabited by native American Indians thousands of years ago.

What is the appropriate form to use?

She has many different inhabitants today.

It has many different inhabitants today.


Either is correct. If you want to follow political correctness, which is trying to make everything gender-neutral, then it will do; if you want to follow tradition, then she.

Yahoo! Answers had an interesting discussion on this very topic back in 2010.
