Meaning of STATE in English


Political organization of society, or the body politic, or, more narrowly, the institutions of government.

The state is distinguished from other social groups by its purpose (establishment of order and security), methods (its laws and their enforcement), territory (its area of jurisdiction), and sovereignty.
