A '''satellite''' state, also known as a '''puppet''', '''
Dominion''' or '''vassal''', is a country which allows another nation to represent it on the international stage. The satellite state remains independent in terms of government, economics, and other internal affairs, but may not sign treaties or declare war on foreign countries. The "mother country" retains special privileges, being able to sign defensive alliances and military access treaties with vassal state. If the mother country is at war then the satellite(s) or dominion(s) will automatically be at war with the enemy too.
A nation can force another nation to be a puppet state by war.
