Teh term 'nax' is borrowed from the English 'nation' and in Common means nation or tribe completely interchangeably. It is not really used as a verb, other than as a pali verb meaning 'be a nation'.
As a noun, 'nax' means a nation or tribe. To convey specifically the ideal fo a nation-state, say 'naxys sifysyn'.
As a modifier, 'naxys' means 'national' or 'tribal' completely interchangeable, and indeed, this is a difficult distinction to make in Common. The compound modifier expression 'ekáwano naxys' means 'international' when talking about the pre-NWO order.
