That is not correct.

It is perfectly normal in German to say 'in Amerika' or in French 'en 
Amerique'. That usually means the complete continent, unless there is 
already a context which, for example, narrows it to a specific part, 
like the US.

If one wants to know more, one has to ask back 'in north, south or 
middle America?' or 'Where in America'.
