I am trying to get all nodes from a tree in c# that have a element with the value of 'NZL' or where the element is missing

I have tried both of the following pieces of code but get an invalid input string error.

Can someone help?
XmlNodeList pools = OddsDoc.SelectNodes("Response/Pools/PoolOdds/States/State[State_Name = 'NZL'or (count(State_Name)= 0)]");

XmlNodeList pools = OddsDoc.SelectNodes("Response/Pools/PoolOdds/States/State[State_Name = 'NZL'or not(State_Name)]");
