They are a nation, just not a country.

A nation is a group of people with a unique cultural identity that live in a certain place. They do not have to be politically autonomous to be a nation.

We tend to use the term "nation" incorrectly here in the US

We allow them several concessions to keep them pacified.

There are two kinds of people from Quebec. Quebecers, who are Canadians who happen to speak French, and live in Quebec. And then there are Quebecois, who demand a referendum to separate from Canada about every 7 years, demand preferential treatment, and basically **** all over Anglophones. These are not my words (as a Canandian from Ontario), these are the words of a man who's lived his entire life in Quebec. You've probably already divined my feelings on the matter. I have no problem with Quebecers or French Canadians. Quebecois, on the other hand, well, the enmity you get is well deserved.

Either way, I'm aware of the distinction between a nation and a country, but considering Quebec's validity as a "nation" was brought up in a thread regarding Canada Day skins, my hackles were raised.

Its also known that many Australian players play lol, just like many USA players, just like many players from England,......


The thing is, In Australia/England League of Legends is less popular than in the United States.
In Canada, dispite having about 1/10th the population, we still manage to search for it more. Clearly our country is full of fanatics and there is money to be made.

Also Canada Day is 3 days away from the 4th of July, so they could be in the same patch.
