Different styles of government have different answers regarding the "rights" that citizens of that country should receive. Most governments would say that citizens have a right to expect protection from danger and provision of means to survive as the most basic rights. Most countries encourage some degree of loyalty to the country among its citizens - this sense of group unity and mutual support may or may not be considered a "right," but humans tend to feel better about themselves when living with a community rather than in isolation. Different governments would have different interpretations of what these phrases mean and how much is actually involved in granting these rights.

Citizens in most countries have responsibilities to help support the country financially and with involvement in activities of national interest, which could mean voting, serving in the military or national service programs, becoming involved in governmental functions, and other duties as needed by the government of the country.
