30. OK, what is your definition?
You've discounted the importance of national boundaries by saying that there is no Iraqi nationality. So why is there a Polish nationality. What do they have in addition to a shared culture, language and history? They certainly had no independent economic or political structures during the years as part of the Russian Empire... This is not an easy question and there is a lot of disagreement. The Turkish state says the Kurds are only an ethnicity and not a nationality, for instance.
