The article attempts to reconstruct a set of mental representations (ideas) that link in political discourse a modern complexly organized society with a personifies society in the sphere of politics territorial state. The actualization of the need for a more in-depth study of this relationship is due to the crisis trends of modern political dynamics, including the crisis of the current version of globalization. But it is also due to the rapidly growing pressure on territorial communities and polities from macrocommunities of a different supranational and/or network nature, dismantling the previous principles of organizing the world order, and thereby representing a challenge both to the principle of territorial statehood and to the very existence of territorially organized communities as such. The author analyzes the symbiotic relationship between modern society and the territorial state, as well as the evolutionary prospects of both of its participants, both individually and in co-evolutionary conjugation. The methodological basis of the research is a combination of political discourse analysis, institutional, conceptual and structural-functional analysis, methods of identity research. The key concepts of the analysis carried out in the article are a complex society and the territorial state as its political form, as well as governance failure, wars for the re-establishment of the state, extraterritorial communities. It is with the increasing role of the latter that there has been a tendency to move from local wars for the restoration of the state to a global open confrontation with the prospect of restoring (updating) the entire political world order, although the new institutional forms of this future order are currently nonobvious.

Keywords: territorial state | complex society | governance failures | extraterritoriality | co-evolution | wars for the re-establishment of the state | world order | development |
