    Yes, you can just write "the US"

    Your question is not completely clear to me. I would say, when in doubt, avoid any abbreviations or contractions in an essay. These can confuse the reader, which is a cardinal sin. The two things we should not do when writing are to not bore and not to confuse.

    the US
