Reply to "rivers in the USA vs rivers of the USA"

"The rivers in the USA are beautiful" (compare: "The rivers there/here are beautiful") more natural than "The rivers of the USA are beautiful" (compare: "American rivers are beautiful").

Thank you, David. Do you mean "in the USA" sounds as if the USA functions as topic/theme (for example, it has been mentiond earlier) and therefore can be substituted by "there"?
