Federalism may also be contrasted with a unitary government in which there is monopoly of legal authority at the national level. The political subdivisions are only treated as separate units for the convenience of administration. France and Great Britain have unitary governments.

Initially, under the Articles of Confederation, the states in America remained sovereign states, enjoying the lionís share of power. The national government was a mere league of states that did not govern the people directly.

Moreover the national government could govern the people directly in domestic matters as well as in foreign policy.
