The cultural mulch in which the UFO myth originally germinated is also American: science fiction, the space programme, spaceships and aliens in movies and on TV.
Americans are steeped in UFOs and aliens from childhood onwards. That suggests that they would be the readiest to believe in such things if the rumour ever got started.
