If your nation didn't exist in 1900, you're not a real country.Yes, that includes us Australians.

>>106784088Republica de Acre.It belonged to Bolivia officially but due to the rubber boom a bunch of Brazilians started moving there, the population of the territory was almost completely Brazilian so they started trying to secede from Bolivia and several separatist republic were established until it finally got incorporated into Brazil as a state.

>>106783763>Mongolia is not a real countryfeels bad
>>106784284Mexico invited settlers there though and then fucked shit up and caused them to revolt.
>>106785893>and then fucked shit up>Mexican government: Slavery might be legal in the United States but it's not legal in Mexico, sorry, those slaves are freedmen now>South*ids chimp out
>>106785979>implying Mexico didn't have tens of thousands of peasants living on haciendas in virtual servitudeSlavery was more illegal on paper than practice there.

Took me a few minutes to realize I was replying to 0n. Never mind.
>>106786194>any Colombian poster I don't like is 0nI am not even 0n, this trend of immediately associating any Colombian flair with him really worries me.
>>106783763nice map dud
>>106785893That sums up how we got Acre from Bolivia.

If you don't know the difference between a "nation", a "country", and a "state", then your opinion on any of those topics is worse than worthless.
>>106786760What's the difference between nation and state, senpai?
>>106786795A nation is a group of people sharing the same ethnicity, language, culture, and historyA state is an official body that governs a territory
>>106786858>A nation is a group of people sharing the same ethnicity, language, culture, and historyI thought that was a country?
>>106786868A country is just a synonym for stateThere are nation - states, but not all nations are statesFor example; Hungry is a nation - state, it is inhabited and ruled by hungariansCatalonia is a nation but it is not a state, it is not independent and ruled by catalans
>>106786795Not him, but as I have always understood it.State: political entity that exerts sovereignty over a well defined territory.Country: a group of people that have a shared sense of identity (culture, religion, language, ethnicity, etc), a nation is not necessarily a state (Kurdistan is a nation but not a state) and not all states are nations (Austria-Hungary)>>106786959The idea of nation is normally associated with that of nation-state most of the time.
>>106786858Right>>106786868Wrong>>106786959WRONG>>106786984Wrong about "country"
>>106786868Country are the international limits
"sometimes used synonymously with" != "synonymous with"Often synonymous usage is a result of confusion, not the proper usage of words.
>>106783763So Australia isn't real?
>>106787013Originally I wrote "state" where "country" is now but I was confused over how the terms change from Spanish to English.
>>106784499The union was run by us. It’s not like you guys entered it willingly.
>>106784088they dont talk about that around here.
>>106785979>>106786152Implying the Mexican government even had the power to influence its policy over that region. The Comanche literally ruled over all of Northern Mexico, the authority of the Mexico City government hardly extended more than 50 miles north of the city.
