Do I have to always add 'the' before USA or united states? Such as 'made in USA' or 'made in the USA?
'The' is generally used before USA and other multi-word country names. Single word countries do not usually need the article.
Made in the USA.
Made in the United Kingdom
Made in India.
Made in America
Made in China.
Made in the People's Republic of China.
There are, of course, exceptions.
Made in Sri Lanka.
Made in Papua New Guineau.
Country names are always capitalized.
