    It has its own government and territory. According to Oxford it meets criteria of country.

    1. a nation with its own government, occupying a particular territory.

    Correct. Turkics all converted to Islam. Mongolics all converted to Buddhism. They previously all practiced shamanism. Kalmytia is also the only Buddhist country in Russia if I'm not mistaken.

    Each state of the US is a country. So is Puerto Rico. They all qualify as countries. Read the definition of country.

    1. a nation with its own government, occupying a particular territory.

    A country in a UN member state has the right to declare independence. For example. South Sudan independence. Scotland independence. Catalonia independence. Quebec independence. Ukraine independence. Belarus independence. South Ossetia independence. Chechnya independence. Abkhazia independence. Kosovo independence.
