Further explaining, it said, a state can also fail if the government loses it's legitimacy even if it is  performing it's functions properly. For a stable, it is necessary for the government to enjoy both effectiveness and legitimacy. Likewise when a nation weakens and it's standard of living declines it introduces the possibility of total governmental collapse.
