    What constitutes a country? Is it purely a geographical location or the people that live...

    within/at that location? Maybe it 's a combination of the two.

    A sovereign state the is self-governing, along with it's geographical location and it's people- plus a lot of other determining factors I'm sure!

    Countries often formed through the consensus of a group of people belonging to a similar cultural and historical base but it may also be formed by racial, religious, or ideological similar groups of people. In the past countries were also formed as territories and colonies of empires.

    That's an interesting question in a lot of ways, it seems that some countries disintegrate around ethnic and historical lines; I'm thinking of the former Yugoslavia, and the former Czechoslovakia.

    What used to hold the United States together was both the United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, interpolating times of great progress, and non interference by foreign controlled central banking.  Every president that has got rid of, or thought about getting red of Rothschild banking has been assassinated, except for the very lucky Andrew Jackson, who's assassin misfired.

    The banker's dreams of a New World Order. . . .will be nothing but an awful joke, and a sad time for the history of the world, when they are "realized."

    To some extent, it is simply the (recognized) borders of that country, but it's also related to having it's own soviergn government, set of laws, currency, and, probably most importantly, culture.

    Canada, the U.S., and Mexico all reside on the same continent, yet have three vastly different cultures,  backgrounds, and belief systems.

    I don't know the answer to this but if you start up your own, I might be interested in becoming a new citizen. I do know that for a "City" to be classified as a "City" it requires a population of over 50,000 citizens living in it.

    Off course a combination of two constitutes a country.
