Nations are geographic cultures:
Belgium is a state that spans 2 nations, the Flemish and the Walloon.
North America has 3 federal states and 11 nations.
@davelab6 Specifically am referring Anderson's definition of nation as imagined community https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imagined_community#Nation_as_an_imagined_community. The nations of Europe needed to be imagined as nations before they could be formalized as modern states (as opposed to the colonized nation —>state). As an American, I am familiar with stateless nations from where I grew up https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samish_Indian_Nation ;)
