    I was talking about what I know best, being a European :)

    other than that, see gjohnsits answer. Basically, nations are not the only political entities possible - in fact - there are very many other forms of political expression throughout history and the world. This specific institution of nation-state and nation as a concept was developed in Europe, indeed, it has spread over the world but it is by no means an advance in "civilization", I´d say.  An advance in power generation it was, for sure.
