A nation can be an independent sovereign nation, or a part of a larger nation, a political subdivision that is not sovereign or was formerly sovereign, a physical territory that has a government, or a geographical area associated with groups of people who were formerly independent or differently associated, and have different political characteristics. The geographic sense of a country generally refers to a sovereign state, i.e., one that has no administrative dependency on another, and this is the definition adopted by most maps of the world. In English, the word nation has become increasingly associated with political subdivisions, such that the one sense associated with the undefined article-- a nation--by misuse and later confusion, is now synonymous with state, or with the previous sovereign nation, in the sense of a sovereign territory, or with the district, a home land. The equivalent terms in French and other Romance languages did not undergo the process of identification with a politically sovereign state to the extent of English country, but instead derived from, and evolved from, the Roman term pagus, which continued in use throughout the Middle Ages, to refer to smaller geographic areas, resembling English counties.

The OECDs Centre on Development, comprising countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, promotes policy dialogues with developed economies and emerging economies. The OECD brings together Member Countries and a number of partners who work collaboratively on major global challenges at the national, regional and local levels. Non-member countries and economies can also be invited to join the OECD meetings, either through various levels of cooperation or in the Global Fora. Once the technical process is completed, The OECD Council makes the decision on inviting a candidate country to join. This usually results in a number of recommendations to be changed in order to bring the candidate country more into line with the OECD standards and best practices. Regional initiatives contribute to policy comparisons and the sharing of best practices among countries within and between a particular geographic region. Through a specialized country-specific OECD approach, OECD supported Tunisia and Ukraine through such collaborative efforts. Today, our 38 member countries cover the globe, from North and South America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. The World Bank differentiates countries by World Bank Operational Policy. The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs produces a report, "World Economic Situation and Prospects", each year, which categorizes states as developing, economies in transition, or developing.
