What is a country?
In political geography and international politics a country is a geographical entity, a territory, most commonly associated with the notions of state or nation. In common usage, it is used casually in the sense of both “nation” and “state”. Definitions may vary. There are dozens of non-sovereign territories which constitute geographical countries, but are not sovereign states. Several states have overseas dependencies, with territory and citizenry separate from their own. They are sometimes listed together with states on lists of countries.
Note: Each and every country listed in the above table is listed as either a “country” or “nation” on many official lists. All countries that we’ve also listed as territories are not recognized by the United Nations as states but many are still recognized as countries due to portions of self-government. All are considered “nations”.
A nation is a ‘set of people with a common identity who have formed a nation-state or usually aspire to do so. In this sense of country, the reference is more likely to be to a group that supposedly shares a common ethnic origin, language, religion, or history (real or illusory). The term has become synonymous with ‘country’ where nations without sovereignty (that is, nations that are not states) have aimed to identify themselves on the same terms as sovereign states.
Four of the constituent parts of the United Kingdom, which itself may be considered a country in the sense of this article, are called first order administrative areas and sometimes referred to countries in their own right: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Northern Ireland is also sometimes referred to as a province of the United Kingdom.
Note: Both the UK and it’s constituent countries can be considered “countries”.
Although Yugoslavia is no longer a nation, Liquid Blue visited the area when it was still “The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia” (1992-2003). Prior to that, Yugoslavia was a nation with various official names since 1918, all of which contained the name, Yugoslavia.
