Don't forget about the nations of Alaska and Hawaii. Certainly, a concept that many native Hawaiians would gladly approve of. Also if were talking about North America, what about the Canadian Territories (Yukon, NWT, Nunavut), that are more remote, less populated, and extend much farther north to the arctic than Alaska.

This is the great American West-- we are chock full of national parks, touristy towns, things to do-- and with the explosive development of cities like Phoenix, it ain't so empty out here either! There's another Joel out there, Joel Kotkin, who is a lot smarter, if you ask me. He's written a lot about America and urban geography.
okay, I know this is several years old, but you do realize this book was written in the 80s, right? Yeah, things change with time.

No There is a fifth nation that I failed to identify. It would actually be nation number three. Complex Nation. If goes between secret nation and Security Nation. This is the nation that lives overseas and preparing to go overseas to ensure a steady supply of living materials for those who remain in the USA. It would be those who work in the military, CIA, State Department,
and contractors for said organizations
That is five nations in one geographical space
