It’s hard to imagine what the world would be like if there were nonational borders – the scenarios are endless. For agovernment, borders are established to maintain structure within thelines drawn. They are meant to keep people within a region, as wellas sustain a set of regulations pertaining to their residents.Borders have been fought over for centuries and are still the reasonfor conflicts across the globe.
