Encyclopedia > Client States

A client state is a state subservient to another state. This can occur in many varying ways, most commonly by treaty, military occupation, and/or economic dependence. Client states have existed for millennia as stronger powers made subservient those around them as they grew. In ancient times states such as Persia and Greek Polis' would create client states by making the personal leaders of that state subservient. One of the most prolific users of client states was Republican Rome which, instead of conquering and then absorbing into an empire, instead chose to make client states out of those it defeated, a policy which was continued up until the 1st century BC when imperial power took over.
