Chapter 9: Promise and Peril in the Provinces Each country has different regions that are separated by culture, language, government and ethnicity. A subnational unit is a region that is below the level of state and country defined because it has something distinctive about it. An example Belgium was separated into two regions based on language. Falnders, who speak Flemish, and Wallonias, who speak French. After WWII the regions were more broken making the country “flatter In Yugoslavia in 1990 war broke out between 17 different ethnic regions because they had been living so close together and they had a lot of hatred toward each other. They broke off into separate countries but when each country need resources from each other fighting broke out again. And the UN had to help bring peace to that area. Regions that are separated but subnational units keep the world from becoming “flat” but as barriers break the world becomes more flat. Our government, cultural, and language is becoming more similar in the core and periphery.
