Civilization is a group of societies (e.g.: countries, villages, cities) that share the same territory, language, culture, architecture, religion, etc.

For example, the USA is a society. USA, other countries of the American continent (like Canada, Mexico and Brazil) and Europe form the occidental civilization.
