Mussolini's agreement with the Pope does not make the Vatican a nation state.  As to the pretensions of Rome--chief amongst them is that they differ from us "separated brethren" not just in theology but in standing in the world--the difference between sects and the one true Church.  No matter how you cut Rome--it always comes up wrong. IMHO

Then that is the criteria that makes any geographic district a nation-state? What makes Monaco or Andorra nation-states? What about these other nation-states?
