French term or phrase: civitas or communitas
Louis XIV might boast that l'etat (not significantly, the res publica or civitas or communitas) c'est moi.
kate
Государство (неважно, республика, общество, страна) - это я
Explanation:
Людовик XIV мог бы похватстаться, сказав: "Государство (неважно, республика, общество, страна) - это я"

l'Etat = государство
civitas => city = город *
communitas => community = государство, общество

(*) Я думаю, лучше не переводить "город", так как цивитас в античности означает город-государство, то есть сообщество граждан какого-л. града).
