It should be singular as a country is an entity. Even it is like the United States of America, or the Netherlands, you should still use the singular. Source: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/ask-teacher/19419-plural-singular.html

It is singular. I often see this mistake with a company, as well. People mistakenly write "Apple announced they would introduce a new iPad..." It should read "Apple announced it would..."
