Community exists any time people are interacting an any way. Two children playing is a community. A friendship is a community. So is a family, a neighborhood, a city council, a region of diverse peoples, a nation, and the assembly of all nations. "Community" is the blanket noun for the overarching concept which covers the net of relationships that makes life work.
