The progression of human cooperation is

Individual (1)

Band (2-30

Tribe (30-100)

Cheifdom (100-1000)

Nation state (upwards of 1000)

Global state (all of humanity)

Nation states are not new, the ancient Greeks and Romans had nation states. Its just that this era of conflict will continue until one absorbs all others without subsequently breaking apart due to size and ambition.

Because the term nation originally referred to a group of people. Land is just land.
