Does anyone know what nationality X-23 is?

I would say Chinese but, that is just a guess because I think her mom was Chinese.

She's whatever nationality Logan/Wolverine is, and he happens to be Canadian, born and bred since the 1890's. He's Caucasian, and Laura/X-23 is his clone, therefore she is Caucasian too. Also, her mother was not Chinese. For one, Sarah Kinney's full sister Debbie is not Chinese; as a second, her last name is Irish in origin (Kinney).

Legally, I'd guess she's American.

Note: Laura saying "I'm your clone". Logan is Canadian. He, in turn, is born Canadian, bloodlines part English (from what I could gather from Wolverine Origins). Therefore, Laura is ONLY whatever Wolverine is; Canadian. Perhaps partially English through his bloodlines.

I think it's been listed as unknown, 
 
ethnically she would be Canadian and whatever  her mom was, 
 
but nationality as in belonging as a citizen to a certain country, it would most likely be American if that's where the lab was when she was born there

Artists fluctuate, she occasionally looks asian-ish but as a clone of logan she's canadian, white but idk her "mom" looked asian in the comics but her ame didn't match XD 
But X-23 looked spanish in X-men Evolution so i guess no one has made a definite choice and she shall remain ambiguous

I know a lady at work with the surname Singh.  She's not of Indian descent & 'Singh' is traditionally a male name.  In the real world someone's surname doesn't necessarily reflect what ethnic background a person has.  On the other hand, comic books aren't usually so diverse, so they usually do reflect someone's background.

@haydenclaireheroes: yeah but she was made with Wolverine DNA so she is half Canadian

Since Wolverine is related to the Hudsons through his mother, Laura is part-Hudson, and part of whoever Logan's father was. All signs point to the Howlett Estate Groundskeeper, named Mr. Logan.  Part of this is from Wolverine: Origins the 6-issue miniseries, the rest is from the later Wolverine: Origins series that introduced Daken.
