What is zulu nation?

Famous quotes containing the word nation:

    Hath not the morning dawned with added light?
    And shall not evening call another star
    Out of the infinite regions of the night,
    To mark this day in Heaven? At last, we are
    A nation among nations; and the world
    Shall soon behold in many a distant port
    Another flag unfurled!
    Henry Timrod (1828–1867)
