Not much if anything at all. It is the US who is heavily in debt to around 30 different countries, oil exporters, and banks.

Its highest debts are to... China, Japan, and Great Britain.

The Public Debt of the US as of 25 Feb 2011 at 12:15:28 PM GMT is:


The estimated population of the United States is 310,096,388

so each citizen's share of this debt is $45,572.99.

The National Debt has continued to increase an average of

$4.11 billion per day since September 28, 2007.

The US will be heavily in debt for decades.

NOTE: Most of the U.S debt it held and owed to it's own people and financial institutions. Approximately 80% to be exact. The debt to other nations is in the form of Treasuries, which no nation can demand payment on until each Treasury matures. That means that no foreign nation can demand payment until such time that those Treasury bills mature; all mature at different times.
