Then, by that definition, technically there are no countries at all, just collections of individuals with various different opinions, thoughts, beliefs, and ideas.
Is that correct?

You replied to a post with the headline 'Apple Sues Aussie Woolworths Over Trademark' with the quote 'Ahh yes I forgot about that!'
You probably forgot because it didn't happen.
Apple didn't sue anybody, and that this is a normal part of trademark process for all companies. If Woolworths were to go into the computer business in the future (something a spokesman for them has confirmed they can't rule out) then the average consumer, when presented with computer boxes with an Apple logo on it, may mistake them as an Apple product.
That's great to hear that you think that the two logos looks nothing alike, but doesn't necessarily means others won't think so.
The following Engadget quote is also educational:
"We'd also like to note that all these stories today have but a single source, and that Apple actually filed their notice of opposition in March but no one noticed until Woolworths talked to The Age. If we had to bet we'd say this is a tactical move by Woolworth's PR team to churn public opinion before a decision is issued -- and if it is, well, congratulations to them, because it certainly looks to us like the reality of this story has been totally overshadowed by the second, slightly more fictional story the tech media would like to tell."
