Where are you physically? I think the Fire knows where it is. Or at least that it's not in the US.

what's the country on the billing address of your credit card?

when you go to Manage Your Kindle (link on right) and click on Country Settings, what does it say? Someone had theirs blank and their account defulated to the UK.

Found the fix for me anyway. Go to the settings. Then to Language & Keyboard. Change Language from English(UK) to English(USA).

That worked. Was UK instead of USA. Thanks for all the advice.
