State can be unitary (only one govt. throughout the territory); federal(distribution of powers between central and state governments); monarchy(hereditary king as the ruler); republic(the head of the state is not a monarch but an elected person) etc. The ultimate aim of the state is the administration of justice. 2. Government
The agent or instrument of the state for the administration of justice. State is a larger body consisting of the entire population but government is smaller body consisting of few persons.
Organs or wings of government and their functions According to the doctrine of separation of power propounded by French scholar Montesque, government powers(law making, execution and adjudication) must be separated and must be vested in three different bodies; Legislature(law making); Executive(power to implement and execute laws); Judiciary(power to interpret and adjudicate). One shall not encroach into the field given to other. Montesque argued that if governmental powers are vested in a single body, it may result to arbiteriness. But in modern welfare state a strict separation of powers is not possible.
