    Whether or not their beliefs are based on God (which depends on how a person views God/correct religion) there are nations that say their morality is based on God and nothing else. I think some nations do dogmatically believe that. Likewise, there are also some that use their belief that God is not real to impose that view of social morality.

    There are basins that say lots of things. But their morality is created by themselves. They can say it was God but it was what they want, if their culture changes then their God changes.
