    Re: Omaha, Nebraska, the USA.

    I say "Omaha, Nebraska, USA."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: Omaha, Nebraska, the USA.

    I think I advised you to write "the USA" in another thread. That was in a context where "USA" was an entry in a list of countries; the definite article is required in that context.

    We don't use the definite article in addresses. Write 10 Downing Street, London, UK and 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington, DC, USA but the capitals of the UK, Canada, and the USA are London, Ottawa, and Washington DC, respectively.
    I am not a teacher.
