Secession is the act of part of a group separating from the wider group, and the verb is to secede. So if part of a country separates from the rest of a country, it has seceded, as a country can generally be considered a sort of group - albeit a group of territorial areas rather than a group of people.
If people, but not territory, separate from their country, that's something else. They might renounce their nationality, emigrate, or defect, all of which are distinct concepts (though someone who defects generally also emigrates).
