The meaning of the two are sometimes interchangeable. State is the Community of persons more or less numerous, permanently occupying a definite portion of territory, independent of the external control and possessing an organized government to which a great body of inhabitants render habitual obedience. The element of the State should be present. These are people, territory, government, sovereignty, sufficient form of civilization and membership of the family of nation. Also, state can't exist legally as such without some form of government. On contrary, government is a political agency or an institution or an aggregate of institutions to which the people render habitual obedience, from which they seek protection and through which their will is being carried out.
