Good citizenship means to conduct oneself in accordance with the rights, duties, and privileges of being an inhabitant of a geographical location by means of birth or naturalization. While this generally means a state or nation, the term has also been applied to inhabitants of particular communities as well as the world (i.e., world citizen). According to the Georgia State Department of Education, the five most important characteristics of a good citizen are honesty, compassion, respect, responsibility, and courage.
