As the number of "states" approaches infinity, the choice of government approaches a free market. For, if this were true, if there was a virtually unlimited number of choices of government, then the area occupied (ruled) by a given government would be infinitesimal. Therefore, the logical (practical) conclusion of this treatment would be that each person governed themselves, whereas if the number of "states" approaches one (since in a world with government, at least one must exist) then, some portion of the people will find themselves under tyranny, where I define tyranny as being subject to the rule of a force with which you disagree.
The choice of 50 states is arbitrary, but is closer to infinity than 1.
