WHAT DOES FEDERATION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

federation

Federation

A federation, also known as a federal state, is a political entity characterized by a union of partially self-governing states or regions under a central government. In a federation, the self-governing status of the component states, as well as the division of power between them and the central government, are typically constitutionally entrenched and may not be altered by a unilateral decision of either party, the states or the federal political body. The governmental or constitutional structure found in a federation is known as federalism. It can be considered the opposite of another system, the unitary state. Germany with sixteen Länder is an example of a federation, whereas neighboring Austria and its Bundesländer was a unitary state with administrative divisions that became federated, and neighboring France by contrast has always been unitary. Federations may be multi-ethnic and cover a large area of territory, although neither is necessarily the case. The initial agreements create a stability that encourages other common interests, reduces differences between the disparate territories, and gives them all even more common ground.

Definition of federation in the English dictionary

The first definition of federation in the dictionary is the act of federating. Other definition of federation is the union of several provinces, states, etc, to form a federal union. Federation is also a political unit formed in such a way.
