You mean in Europe, that not everyone speaks Indo-European languages??
E.g Basque, Finno-Ugric, Hungarian, Sami, etc.etc
Hungarian, Finnish and Estonian are part of the Finno-Ugric family, Basque is separate from them and the Samoyedic languages.
Almost all the rest of the European languages are descended from Proto Indo-European, along with Hindi, Farsi, Urdu, Kurdish, Pashto etc.
My point (which you failed to detect due to the high specific gravity cellulose structure between your ears) was that numerous nations within europe, although having languages from the same linguistic root, have totally separate ethnic, cultural and political identities.
So China and Tbt, who also share a sino-tbtn language history, have even greater differences in culture and particularly in their writing systems.
The differences are even greater, for example, when comparing Britain and Italy. So why are China and Tbt supposed to be "one country" ? Oh, and do remember that "Italians" from around 2000 years ago did invade, occupy and rule Britain for some time.
