The plural noun 'states' is an abstract noun as a word for the manners or conditions of being or of mind (a state or readiness, a state of fear).

The plural noun 'states' is a concrete noun as a word for the units of a nation, a word for physical places (the state of Utah, the state of Uttar Pradesh).

Both concrete and abstract nouns are words for things. Both concrete and abstract nouns can be singular or plural. Both concrete and abstract nouns can be common nouns or proper nouns. Both concrete and abstract nouns function in a sentence as the subject of the sentence or clause, and as the object of a verb or a preposition.
