Your nationality is your country of origin, simple as that. Cain was born and raised, lives works and pays taxes in America

That is one definition, but a poor one and a fairly new one.

Nation refers to birth not in context of country (geographically) or state (politically) but of ethnicity (racially or culturally). One's nation is the people like them ethnically, linguistically, and culturally. In fact, nation is the Latin word most often used to translate the Greek word ethnos.

In a immigrant rich society like that of the US, it is common for the first several generations of immigrants to identify strongly with the country they left as they assimilate into the new country.
