The two sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, were each considered separate Tribes in their own right (Genesis 48:5).
Manasseh is the USA because:
Names of Tribes in Britain and Europe who mainly moved to North America are those of Clans from Manasseh.
The name "America" is derived from the Hebrew "Ha-Machiri" meaning descendants of Machir the first born son of Manasseh.
"Machir" in Hebrew also connotes capitalism and the USA is the foremost capitalist nation.
The name Manasseh in Hebrew means Responsible Representation which is the form of Government of the USA, and reflects its national character.
Manasseh was to become great after Joseph (Genesis 48:19).

MACHIR THE SON OF MANASSEH
Machir was the son of Manasseh. Descendants of Machir were referred to as "HaMachiri." Machir was the father of Gilead and ancestor to that portion of Manasseh (called "the half tribe of Manasseh", e.g. 1-Chr. 6:46) which settled on the east bank of the Jordan together with Reuben and Gad.
Â DESCENDANTS OF MANASSEH
The son of Machir was GILEAD (pronounceable as Gileath) from whom emerged the Galadon of northern Wales and the Galadi -Galatians of Gaul and the Caledonians in Scotland. The sons of GileadÂ were Jeezer, Helek (Chelek), Asriel, Shechem, Shemida, and Hepher (Numbers 26:30). These became Tribal groups who settled in Britain.
In the area of Frisia descendants of Manesseh (the Fransa-Masani) had been present and these are those who invaded Britain. East Anglia is said to have received a substantial immigration from Frisia and these too contributed significantly to the early populating of America.
MACHIR AND AMERICA
Machir was the firstborn son of Manasseh:
23 Joseph saw the third generation of Ephraim's sons; also the sons of Machir, the son of Manasseh, were born on Joseph's knees.
THE NAME MACHIR IS ALSO RECALLED IN THAT OF AMERICA!
The Hebrew prophets predicted that in the end time the Lost Ten Tribes would return from the "North Country" (e.g. Jeremiah 31:8). The Vikings attempted to settle in North America and named it "MARKLAND" which is believed to mean "Land of Darkness"
The most likely and most accepted explanation is that the name "America" comes from that of the Explorer, Amerigo Vespucci (1451-1512) also called "America" and (after 1507) the Continent "America" was said to have been named in his honor. The name Amerigo or "America" is similar to medieval appellations (Aimerico, etc.38) for a Jewish Prince of Southern France whose proper Hebrew name (from which the Latinised appellations were derive ) was MACHIR.
This Prince in Hebrew documents is nick-named 'Ha-Machiri'. In Biblical Hebrew 'Ha-Machiri' would mean the 'People of Machir' but in Medieval Times it was just another form of the name itself.
Amerigo Vespucci was named after Machir or a Latinised version of "Ha-Machiri" i.e. literally "The People of Machir."
The name AMERICA was therefore indirectly named after Machir, son of Manasseh. The very name "Manasseh" in Hebrew (according to the Commentary of Rabbi Shimshon Raphael Hirsch) can mean delegated responsible representation and this is a fundamental aspect of the North American character. The USA was created when its early settlers declared "no taxation without representation" and fought against Britain for their Independence. America was named after Machir. Benyamin Turkia pointed out the "Machir" in Hebrew means "Selling" and the Principles of Captialism and Free Enterprise have also become part of the American character.
