An alleged secret network of especially nonelected government officials and sometimes private entities (as in the financial services and defense industries) operating extralegally to influence and enact government policy.

Example sentence(s):
  • It is Trump himself, under the camouflage of populist rhetoric, who has overseen the open expansion of the deep state: entrenched interests gaining outsize influence and setting their own policy agenda, unchecked by the will of the people, their elected representatives or the civil servants meant to regulate them. The Washington Post
  • “They take detailees, not the best from these agencies, often the worst, they stick them into the White House,” he concluded. “It's a practice that frankly should end, and the political appointees, Tim Morrison and [Kurt] Volker aren't mistaking themselves for the president, it's these Deep State bureaucrats that do.” Christian Whiton

Example sentence(s):
  • Se vorbește, de pildă, de existența unui „stat paralel’’ atunci când e analizată separația puterilor în stat în Pakistan. Termenul a fost folosit de către Mazhar Aziz, un pakistanez fost funcționar public, care a obținut un doctorat în științe politice la University of Nottingham, și care a încercat să explice, în studiul său „Military control in Pakistan: the parallel state”, de ce sistemul militarizat din țara sa a devenit atât de puternic, încât a dobândit forța unui „stat paralel”. - online media
