How do you define a federal system?

Answer

A federal system is a system of government in which the power to govern is shared between national and provincial/state governments, creating what is often called a federation. A federal system breeds Federalism which is a political concept in which a group of members are bound together by covenant with a governing representative head. The term 'federalism' is also used to describe a system of the government in which sovereignty is constitutionally divided between a central governing authority and constituent political units like states or provinces.
