Take a look at

Have fun,

Soople for US searches, Aardvark for African Jun 3, 2005

Soople has the option of searching only US sites, but this function does not work... it appears to simply limit its searches to the non-country domains such as .com, .net etc.

On the same topic, if you want to search African sites, give Aardvark (aardvark.co.za) a try. It uses Google but filters the searches more smartly than Scoople does, IMO.

But did you know you can limit your search to a particular country (South Africa, for example) or subdomain (South African government sites, for example) by simply adding [site:.za] or [site:.gov.za] (without the brackets) to the search field? Use the two-letter country code, and don't forget the first dot.
