Summary/Abstract: From Boden's understanding of state government as sovereign, i.e. the highest, independent, continuous and indivisible, law, society and the state with its most important quality - the sovereignty of the state government to date have undergone major changes. The sovereignty of the state government and the independence of the state, per se is increasingly more relative phenomenon, from both, the internal and external aspects. The international community as a whole, international law and the will of the stakeholders in the international relations have a growing impact on the internal life of the state, while the state and its authority in the doctrine is attributed with the special qualities such as efficiency, legality, legitimacy, democracy ect.. The political reality is that the doctrine of sovereignty is increasingly associated with the special - exclusive resources and capabilities of certain countries and not to the quality of government, elements of the state, or the will of the people. However, question of state sovereignty is much more than a basic aggregate resource evaluation and simple deregulation, because without a healthy nation-state and its sovereignty internationally recognized system of coordination, or any rightfully supranational order that each state inter se could create, can not exist.
