  1. 1,monetary system to facilitate trade and markets.
    2,writing to keep records, historical, scientific, and financial.

    An educational system is a must beyond the simplest of tribes.
    Regretably all successful civilizations seem to require a religion and a caste of priests. This allows strong social control and cultural identification.

  2. Being a strong proponent of nationalism, I'd have to say that the three most important qualities they have in common are 1) Common values, traditions, and cultural icons, 2) Shared ethnicity and general culture, or at least perception of shared ethnicity and culture, and 3) A strong centralized nationalistic government with direct control and communication with all other segments of society.
