This sounds more like a jurisdiction to me, i.e. where a set of laws apply.
This can be an important concept for electronic trading, since if a contract
is to be formed between buyer and seller they need to agree the
jurisdiction of the contract by some means. I live in the United Kingdom
(hence uk at the end of my internet address), but parts of it have different
laws, e.g. Scotland and England.
