Katika [[jiografia]], '''nchi''' ni kanda au eneo la kijiografia. Neno hili mara nyingi hutumiwa kwa kitengo cha kisiasa au eneo la taifa huru, au kwa eneo ndogo la kijiografia, zamani likiwa [[kitengo cha kisiasa]]. Kwa kawaida, lakini si kila wakati, nchi inasanjari na [[eneo huru]] na kuhusishwa na [[taifa]] au [[serikali]].
 
'''Nchi''' kwa maana ya kimsingi ni sehemu ya Dunia isiyofunikwa na bahari. Mara nyingi inataja sehemu maalumu iliyogawanyika kisiasa kwa mipaka na kutajawa kwa jina lake. Kwa maana hii ya kawaida nchi ni kitengo cha kisiasa katika eneo maalumu. Kwa kawaida nchi ni pia eneo la dola moja.
''Nchi'' pia inaweza kumaanisha [[sehemu za mashambani]], kinyume na [[mji]].
 
Katika matumizi ya kawaida, neno nchi hutumiwa katika maana ya mataifa na majimbo, kukiwa na fasili tofauti. Katika baadhi ya matumizi inatumiwa kuashiria majimbo na vitengo vingine vya kisiasa,<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/aia1901230/s22.html |title=Acts Interpretation Act 1901 - Sect 22: Meaning of certain words |publisher=Australasian Legal Information Institute |accessdate=2008-11-12}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.austlii.edu.au/cgi-bin/disp.pl/au/cases/cth/federal%5fct/1997/912.html |title=The Kwet Koe v Minister for Immigration &amp; Ethnic Affairs &amp; Ors [1997&#93; FCA 912 (8 September 1997)|publisher=Australasian Legal Information Institute |accessdate=2008-11-12}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/84411.pdf |title=U.S. Department of State Foreign Affairs Manual Volume 2—General |format=PDF |publisher=United States Department of State |accessdate=2008-11-12}}</ref> ilihali katika mengine inahusu tu majimbo <ref>{{cite web|url=http://geography.about.com/cs/politicalgeog/a/statenation.htm| title=Geography: Country, State, and Nation |accessdate=2008-11-12 |last=Rosenberg |first=Matt}}</ref>.

Majimbo ya zamani kama [[Bavaria]] (sasa ni sehemu ya Ujerumani) na [[Piedmont]] (sasa ni sehemu ya Italia) yangekuwa si kawaida kujulikana kama "nchi" katika Kiingereza ya kisasa. Kiwango cha uhuru wa nchi zisizo mataifa inatofautiana sana. Baadhi ni mali ya mataifa, kwani mataifa kadhaa yana [[maeneo yanayoyategemea]] ya ng'ambo (kama vile [[Visiwa vya Virgin vya Uingereza]], [[Saint Pierre na Miquelon]], na [[Samoa ya Marekani]]), yenye eneo na raia tofauti na yao wenyewe. Maeneo tegemezi kama haya wakati mwingine yanatajwa pamoja na mataifa huru kwenye orodha ya nchi, na yanaweza kuchukuliwa kama "[[nchi ya asili]]" katika biashara ya kimataifa, kama [[Hong Kong]] ilivyo. Baadhi ya nchi zimegawanywa kati ya majimbo kadhaa, kama vile [[Korea]] na [[Kurdistan]].
