The state power can be characterized as a power of social nature, expressing and realizing the will of the governors as a general obligatory will. It is a coercive power, unique and sovereign within the state. As a "supreme power recognized by the state, it implies its exclusive competence over national territory and independence in the international legal order, where it is limited only by its own commitments." Sovereignty substantiates the supremacy and independence of state power. The supremacy of power implies that the constitutionally established state power is superior to any other power.
