What is my Country-nymic?

Okay, so I'm from the United States Of America. More than once now I've been typing a comment about a topic that has to do with Mexico or Canada or somewhere in this hemisphere, and I start to type "American" to describe myself, but then I stop, because we're all Americans over here. I think I remember that USian fell out of favor a while back. So... what do I call myself? Most recently I used the awkward term "US person". Is there any descriptor for someone who is from the USA that doesn't has cultural superiority assumptions ("I'm American, none of the rest of you from the Americas get to say that!") or the negative associations that I remember this site associating with USian? I don't have any answer, but I'm genuinely curious if anyone here has a good word to use. Because I'd use it.

Why is the term "USian" used on MeFi in place of "American" so often?

How international is MeFi?

Is there anyway of telling how strong the 'outside-America' contingent is on MeFi?

How international are we?

Hello from London.
