The social base of nationalism incorporates the entire population except, perhaps, the radical intellectuals (the internationalists), the poor, the indigent, and the uneducated. In such diverse, multiethnic societies as the United States, national unity is more difficult to achieve than in homogeneous lands. Even in the United States, however, there is an "umbrella ideology" that brings together peoples of various regions and nationalities--the Northerners and the Southerners, the Poles and the Irish--and identifies them as "Americans."
