A sort of immature version of a collective consciousness, shared by one nation. The medium by which the ruled influence the rulers, regardless of whether the rulers are accountable to the ruled.

However, the ruled seldom influence the rulers to actually serve the ruled. The rulers often try to influence the national psyche as well as being influenced by it, but this proves to be tricky and they are usually better off leaving well enough alone.
