So now you want to include the "nation" part into your definition? Granted, most of the time during antiquity states couldn't be classified as nation-states because they almost with out exception were of a homogeneous cultural/ethnic background. However, there were exceptions, with the Persian Empire(s), Chinese, Assyrian, etc. existing. They had borders beyond which lived the "savages" which were generally city states.

In any problem, if you find yourself doing an infinite amount of work, the answer may be obtained by inspection.
