Is there any nuance difference between the words "nation" vs. "country"? Sombody said if you'd like to emphasize on people, then it's better to use 'nation" while 'country' on land. Or I can use both of them freely without any consideration of meaning difference.
Thanks in advance,
When a nation of people have a State or country of their own, it is called a nation-state. With its multicultural society, the United States is referred to as a nation-state because of the shared American "culture." So when the president of America addressed to the nation, it refers to the entire body of people within the political boundary of the country of America.
I say: My country in India/My nationality is Indian. or I am an Indian national.
