The term empire is generally taken to mean a territory or territories over which one power has overall and supreme political control. It can be used to refer to States which have domination over other States or territories, or States which are characterised by the domination of one ethnic group over a number of other ethnic groups. While the term is generally associated with European countries and the era of colonisation, it can also be applied to non-European countries, some of which are explored in this article.
