Background: 

Three notions must be distinguished: Nationality as by birth/ provenance, nationality that can be acquired like citizenships, nationality as social characteristic

Current Proposal: 

In practical scope. 

1) by birth:
E21Person. (P98) was born - E67 Birth. (P7) took place at: E53 Place, connects to place hierarchies. 
E21Person. (P98) was born - E67 Birth. (P10) falls within: E4 Period, connects to political systems as periods. 

2) as citizenship:
E21Person. (P107) was member of: E74 Group 

3) as social characteristics:
E21Person. (P2) has type: E55 Type

Outcome: 

Proposal accepted. Nationality must be dealt with separately as social, legal and cultural characteristic.

How to aqcquire citizenship is a different issue (21)
