The term country usually refers to a sovereign state. However, it may be used differently, such as when referring to England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as separate countries despite not being sovereign states. There are also usages such as "coal country". Context will usually reveal the intended meaning.

The term nation may also refer to a sovereign state. However, it may have another meaning related to ethnicity and race as discussed in the article on nationalism.
