So, yes, as you said, I think typing just "America" for "USA" is not accepted.
Remember, there is a problem of understanding when people say just "America" because it's not just "a single country", even the continents are also called "Americas"! As I said in my above comment, all the people from "North and South America" are *Americans* FIRST and *Mexican, Canadian, Guatemalan, Argentinian, Chilean, etc.* NEXT.
So, there will be a clear doubt to someone if you just say "America/American", it's NOT WRONG, but it's confusing.
So, it's always better to say "I'm from the USA" rather than just using "I am American". (it's still acceptable tho, just a little confusing that whether he/she is from the country AMERICA or the continents AMERICAS)
Coming to *China/Republic of China* and *Commonwealth of Australia*, there's no other country or place with that name, so you can undoubtedly say *Chinese* and *Australian*
