 Nation-state - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The nation-state implies the parallel occurrence of a state and a nation.
In the ideal nation-state, the population consists of the nation and only of the nation: the state not only houses it, but protects it and its national identity (i.e., they coincide exactly): every member of the nation is a permanent resident of the nation-state, and no member of the nation permanently resides outside it.
The idea of a nation-state is associated with the rise of the modern system of states, usually dated to the Treaty of Westphalia (1648).

 Onoda'gega (People of the Hills)Onondaga
If the man were a chief of the Onondaga Nation, he would wear attached to his feathered hat deer antlers that symbolize his authority as one of the fourteen chiefs of the Nation.

The Onondaga call themselves Onoda'gega, sometimes spelled Onontakeka, which means People of the Hills, or Onondagaono (The People of the Hills).

 Zulu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shaka Zulu was the illegitimate son of Senzangakona, chief of the Zulus.
Zulu music incorporates rhythm, melody and harmony — the latter is usually dominant and known as "isigubudu" (which can be translated as converging horns on a beast, with tips touching the animal, a spiralling inward that reflects inner feelings).
Zulu is the most widely spoken language in South Africa, with more than half of the South African population able to understand it (Ethnologue 2005).

 MSN Encarta - Turkey (country)
The military, which sees itself as the ultimate guardian of the principles of Kemalism, has intervened in the political process on four occasions—in 1960, 1971, 1980, and 1997—because it feared that political parties posed a threat to the secular nature of the state.
Turkey borders the Aegean Sea and Greece on the west; Bulgaria on the northwest; the Black Sea on the north; Georgia, Armenia, and the autonomous Azerbaijani republic of Naxçivan on the northeast; Iran on the east; and Iraq, Syria, and the Mediterranean Sea on the south.

 Titular nation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The language of a titular nation was declared an additional (after Russian) official language of the corresponding administrative unit.
The notion worked well for the cases of well established, homogeneous and relatively developed nations.
In other cases, such as in Kazakhstan, this notion failed to take into an account tribal differences within an ethnos, formally considered a single nation.

 Nation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In common usage, terms such as nations, country, land and state often appear as near-synonyms, i.e., for a territory under a single sovereign government, or the inhabitants of such a territory, or the government itself; in other words, a de jure or de facto state.
The nationals are the members of the "nation" and are distinguished by a common identity, and almost always by a common origin, in the sense of ancestry, parentage or descent.
Nationals are considered to share certain traits and norms of behavior, certain duties toward other members, and certain responsibilities for the actions of the members of the same nation.

 Nation-state - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The origins of the nation state are to be found in the expanding core of France under Philip IV, and of England, once it had shed its extra-territorial claims in Gascony and Aquitaine and gained a national consciousness, a sense of "Englishness".
Over the last few centuries, most states have claimed to be nation states in order to increase the patriotism of their citizens.
The term nation-state, while often used interchangeably with the terms unitary state and independent state, refers properly to the parallel occurence of a state and a nation.

 The Georgian - South Ossetian Conflict, chapter 5
These were defined as nation states, with the exception of the Russian Socialist Federal Soviet Republic, which was defined as a multinational state.
But even though, the tendency is clear, the titular nations, in the case of the Union Republic of Georgia, Georgians, Abkhazians and South Ossetians, were in their designated homelands subject to affirmative action programmes as first-order or second-order titular nationalities, leading to a disproportionate overrepresentation in the party organs, professional employment and higher education.
The titular nationalities are clearly overrepresentated in comparison to their share of the population at large.

The Osages acquired guns and horses from Europeans during the eighteenth century, which enabled them to extend their territory and control the distribution of European goods to other tribes in the region.

 What is Bastard Nation? A Short History by Damsel Plum
Bastard Nation asserts that it is the right of people everywhere to have their official original birth record unaltered and free from falsification, and that the adoptive status of any person should not prohibit them from exercising such a right.
Bastard Nation's primary goal is the opening to adoptees, upon request at age of majority, of those government documents which pertain to the adoptee's historical, genetic, and legal identity, including the unaltered original birth certificate and adoption decree.
Bastard Nation does not support mandated mutual consent registries or intermediary systems in place of fully open records, nor any other system that is less than access on demand to the adult adoptee, without compromise, and without qualification.

 Nation of Islam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

During the 1980s crack cocaine epidemic, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development employed several private firms run by members of the Nation of Islam to provide security in housing projects in black neighborhoods.
The NOI teaches that black people constitute a nation and that through the institution of the Atlantic slave trade they were systematically denied knowledge of their past history, language, culture and religion and in effect lost control of their lives.
