We will support Israel if her security is threatened by Iran

Britain, France and Israel are female but what is America?
Is it referred to as her or his?

"We" or "our"

And "her" sometimes as well.

From the song God Bless America:

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies

Methinks you're looking for something that is not there.

It's common for nations to be referred to as feminine in gender, even the good ol' U.S. of A.
