"United States of Eurasia" is a song by English alternative rock band Muse and is featured on their fifth studio album ''The Resistance''.

==Background and composition==
"United States of Eurasia" was the first song title to be confirmed as on ''The Resistance'', after fans worked it out from a photograph of its sheet music uploaded on the band's Twitter profile.〔 〕 On 3 July 2009, the album's track listing was revealed, with "United States..." positioned fourth between "Undisclosed Desires" and "Guiding Light".
In a pre-release interview featured in the August edition of music magazine ''Mojo'', vocalist and guitarist Matthew Bellamy reveals the song to be inspired by "a book called ''The Grand Chessboard'' by Zbigniew Brzezinski," explaining that "Brzezinski has the viewpoint that the Eurasian landmass, ie Europe, Asia and the Middle East, needs to be controlled by America to secure the oil supply." Bellamy goes on to suggest that the song is also influenced by George Orwell's novel ''Nineteen Eighty-Four'', in which Eurasia is one of Earth's three super-states.〔
