"Merkin" was being used by people in other English-speaking countries to refer to Americans when I first stumbled across the Internet in 1996. The Australians also call us "seppos." The Canadians seem to polite to use either of those. Some of the British were shocked that "merkin" didn't make us feel insulted. We just laughed about it.
