From Teflpedia

A country is, generally speaking, a political state or nation or its territory.

The word is somewhat semantically ambiguous; notably the United Kingdom, where English originated, is a country consisting of the countries of England, Scotland and Wales while Northern Ireland also forms part of the UK, and may be viewed as either a country or a province.

Country shouldn't be confused with "county".
