You are still missing

You are still missing something. The area which you think in your example became a State, didn't become a State at all. You calling a voluntary group of individuals a State doesn't make it a State. As I stated, a State by its very nature is not voluntary. Is the Rotary club a State? Is a Volunteer Fire Company a State? Is a Social Club a State? Is the Chamber of Commerce a State?

Your two examples don't illustrate that one can become a State, and that is a big problem because you think it does.
