Wikipedia definition
4. IndependenceIndependence is a condition of a nation, country, or state in which its residents and population, or some portion thereof, exercise self-government, and usually sovereignty, over its territory. The opposite of independence is dependence. Attainment of independence should not be confused with revolution, which typically refers to the violent overthrow of a ruling authority.
