In this domain, the models of individual, organizational, and national health can be interesting, however, perhaps the most interesting question is not how the state is like a person, but how does a model of human nature affect a model of the state.
If we apply the assumption of fear as we have done to economics to the political domain, there are interesting implications on movements towards political integration and dis-integration and of national identity as well as of trading blocks. Institutional checks and balances provided by international organizations such as the UN, WTO, that could serve to relieve fear are worthy of study.
