Capitalist state Wikipedia
The capitalist state is the state, its functions, and the form of organization it takes within capitalist socioeconomic systems. This concept is often used interchangeably with the concept of the "modern state"; however there are many differences in sociological characteristics among capitalist states, despite their common functions.
The primary functions of the capitalist state are to provide a legal framework and infrastructural framework that is conducive to business enterprise and the accumulation of capital.
Karl Marx described the function of the executive of a capitalist state as "nothing but a committee for managing the common affairs of the whole bourgeoisie". Specifically, in Marx's view, the capitalist state necessarily exists to serve the interests of capitalists (referred to as "the bourgeoisie"). Thus thinkers in the Marxist tradition often refer to the capitalist state as the Dictatorship of the bourgeoisie.
