Definition of parastate in English:
A region that seeks or claims but does not have the status of a recognized independent state.
- Neither parastate had a shred of official recognition from the outside world, but they believed that their manoeuvring would be rewarded in the end.
- The parastates are again preparing for battle.
- Such examples also point to a conundrum for the parastate: it may be too small to survive.
