Best Answer

Most people are citizens of the country in which they were born. You continue to be a citizen even if you leave that country (sometimes, people living away from their home country are referred to as "expatriates" which causes some confusion about whether or not you have renounced your citizenship - the act of living overseas does not inherently change citizenship). I have lived in several different countries, but I am still a United States citizen.
