Synonyms of "Country" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre they moved to country e they have moved to country ?
A: I'm going to assume you mean:
A) They moved to the country
B) They have moved to the country

Both can technically mean the same thing, typically if you are bringing this up in conversation then A would be the better option. For Example:

Person A: How are Rose and Jack?
Person B: They're good! I heard they moved to the country.

Option B, personally I would use to confirm something previously said. For Example:

Person A: I heard Rose and Jack moved to the country

Person B: What? No, I don't think they did.

Person C: No, they're right. They have moved to the country.


Honestly it depends. The sentences you provided are rather broken still, meaning it could be seen as the country side or a country as in England. Also, other English speakers may view it differently in terms of meaning because they can be said differently which can change their meanings slightly. For example, they can both be used as questions to confirm.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Neighboring countries e Neighbor countries ?

Q: Qual é a diferença entre country e state e nation ?
A: Nation:
a place with a homogenous group of people (they have the same religion or ethnicities, for example). Iceland and Japan are nations. The US and Australia are not.
Similarly, Chechnya (in Russia) is a nation. It is a region that is inhabited mostly by the Chechen people even though it remains within Russia.

State:
a place that has its own government with complete control over foreign policies. A nation can be a state. Again, Iceland and Japan are both nations and state.

Country:
"Country" can be the same as "state" but its meaning is more ambigious (not everyone agrees on a definition). For me, I like to think of it as a state that is recognized by other countries. For example, ISIS is becoming more and more of a state because its government is quite powerful. However it is not a country since no government in the world recognizes it as a country.
