A group is considered a single entity if all the members of the group are addressed together. You cannot have a group of "United States" be a country without including all 50 of them so they are addressed as a single group. The capitalization of United States of America also indicates you are referring to the collection of all 50 states together.
In contrast, if you said "The Red States are more conservative." then you are referring to the individual states in that group so they are treated as a plural subject.
