    I was born in Wales, I have lived in Wales for the majority of my life and I have a very strong connection with my native country. For several generations now, my family have been Welsh.

    I am a Welshman.

    I usually only mention the Andalusian part if someone seriously asks. I totally look Hispanic and it is the only part I've ever slightly identified with.
    Er...Catholic isn't an ethnicity/nationality. It's a religion.

    So Catholic Andalusian is not an ethnicity, but Yugoslavian is?

    Nationality doesn't necessary have to be related to citizenship.
    The best way to define it is:
    State = A geographical area with borderlines that defines a territory under some specific sovranity.
    Nation = A group of citizens located in a land that shares same culture, history, language and all of them feel part of the same ethnicity.

    Catalonia for example is a nation without state that is located in four different states, (Spain, France, Andorra and Italy).
