What makes a country?

Is it the bordered land and sea?  Is it the structured government and books?  Is it the branded flag and anthem?  Is it the practiced language and religion?  Is it the inherited foods and arts?  Is it the categorized race and color?

Or, is it people coming together.  Despite the different lands and seas they come from.  Despite the different languages they speak.   Despite the different religions they follow.  Despite the different foods they eat.  Despite the different arts they appreciate. Despite the different races they belong to.  Despite the different colors of their skins.

They come together to live with each other, love each other, and learn from each other.

What is your country?

  3. For me, a country is a geographical demarcation.

    A nation – that is a multitude of people coming and living togther regardless of race, language, religion and etc.

    There are many countries but few nations.
