Gracias a todos. No me sentí a gusto con ninguna de las propuestas (ni con mi solución, que fue "estados rebeldes")porque siento que cualquiera de ellas tiene una carga mucho mayor (en cuanto a estar fuera de la ley) en español que el "rogue" en inglés.

estados bandoleros


Explanation:
I've seen this used in the press, and I think it pretty well means the same thing. Personally, I'd qualify it: "los llamados estados bandoleross"

estado delincuente


Explanation:
Tambien he encontrado estado paria pero me inclino más por estado delincuente o fuera de la ley


WSHINGTON, June 19 -- After years of directing sanctions and suspicion toward defiant governments from North Korea to Iran, the Clinton administration abruptly declared today that "rogue nations" no longer exist.

There are, instead, "states of concern." They are the very same states as before -- no less dangerous or unpredictable -- but possibly more easily swayed by gentler American terms, officials said.

Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright disclosed the change in the official lexicon today when she was asked about "the rogue state" of North Korea and its "rogue leader," Kim Jong Il.

A partir de la desaparición de Jomeini en Occidente ganan peso los sectores que nunca quisieron perder pie en Irán. Incluso en EE.UU. abundan quienes dicen que Irán no es un "estado paria" (rogue state).

estados delincuentes


Explanation:
Hola. Es una de las varias acepciones. Aquí te envío un artículo informativo en el que se hace mención a "rogue states" en tu mismo contexto. Se refiere a paises que se saltan las normas internacionales de convivencia, siempre y cuando no sea el país de uno, claro: "Por nuevas amenazas reales, entienden ambos países, conforme a dicha declaración conjunta, el surgimiento de países con capacidad de producir misiles y armas nucleares. El documento no menciona a ninguno, pero entre éstos, la prensa estadunidense identifica con el arrogante calificativo de rogue states o Estados delincuentes a Corea del Norte, Irak, Irán y Libia, principalmente". Salud y suerte :-)

estados forajidos, estados fuera de la ley


Explanation:
También países forajidos, países fuera de la ley... I found many sites through Copernic with "estados forajidos" including: ...un cuidado mucho mayor por la seguridad física misma del material fisionable (material químico y biológico en Rusia y en nuestro país) para que el escape de éste, que a menudo buscan los piratas que tratan de servir de canales para los estados forajidos o elementos terroristas, no lleve a desastres verdaderos............ Más aun, tendremos que seguir cautelosos en cuanto a las amenazas potenciales al territorio mismo de Estados Unidos. Aunque la amenaza nuclear en ese sentido ha disminuido considerablemente desde que terminó la Guerra Fría, debemos vigilar cautelosos los arsenales nucleares que hay en Rusia y en China y las armas de destrucción en masa que están en manos de estados forajidos y organizaciones terroristas. ... Juntos, debemos también enfrentar nuevos peligros: armas químicas y biológicas que podrían usar contra nosotros los estados forajidos, los terroristas y los criminales organizados. Saddam Hussein ha invertido la mayor parte de esta década y mucha de la riqueza de su nación, no en proveer para el pueblo iraquí, sino en desarrollar armas nucleares, químicas y biológicas, y los misiles para dispararlas. Los inspectores de armas de las Naciones Unidas han hecho una labor notable al encontrar y destruir una parte del arsenal de Iraq, mayor que la que se destruyó durante la misma Guerra del Golfo. Ahora Saddam Hussein quiere impedirles completar su misión.
