A core state


can perform its ordering function because member states perceive it is cultural kin. A civilisation is an
extended family and, like older members of a family, core states provide their relatives both with support and discipline.
In the absence of that kinship, the ability of a more powerful state to resolve conflicts in and impose order in its region
is limited.
