Spanish term or phrase: estado libre y soberano
found in legal government documents
Jean Williams
English translation:free and sovereign
Explanation:
is the standard formulaic phrase. Whether "estado" refers to a nation or a state depends on the specific political entity in question. Of course, "state" is a perfectly acceptable synonym for "nation", as you'll find in many international documents. Treaties, in particular, very often use the phrase "member states" or "signatory states," with reference to individual countries.
