2. Concept

2.1. Requisites

2.1.1. Laid down by the Montevideo Convection in Uruguay. The state basically has to have 1. Permanent Population- This means there are actual inhabitants and settlers- not like Amazon or Antarctica. No Minimum No. just like Vatican which has only a population of 300. 2. Defined Territory - The borderlines are clear. There are clear boundaries as to its jurisdiction. No minimum size. 3. Government- There is a functioning governing body. They can either be De Facto or De Jure. 4. Capacity to enter into relations with other states- some colonies, under the tutelage of a more powerful nation are not independent and cannot enter into relations with other states. Not just subservient to other countries.

2.2. Creation:

2.2.1. When? A state comes into existence when a community acquires the essential Characteristics of a State.

2.2.2. How? One of the most common instances when this occurs is through Decolonization -it is when A colony breaks away from its foreign colonizers and the other most common is State Succession, in which a part of an existing state's territory had successfully established independency.

2.3. Abolition

2.4. Nation V Colony V State
