A state (or province) is a subdivision of a country. While some states were produced artificially after wars, others were formed around local groups with their own identities. States may declare indepedence from their country and become a country of their own. States will not exist on a verse if it is uninhabited, or if the entities there have chosen no countries.
Counties (also known as districts, boroughs, and parishes) are the second-level country divison, and divisions of a state. The counties are also managed by local goverment like the states.
State is part of a series on verses.
