By "societal system," I don't mean feudalism, communism, etc. There's 3 "states" with their own borders that form 1 nation on the same continent. They have different governments and councils, yet they share the same culture, religion, and laws. I'd like to add a title to the 3 of them that form a single nation. I was thinking of using alliance, but it's more than an alliance, really. Nor can I call it a federation. What would be a title for the states. The name of the country is Vauk.
