Best Answer

Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire) is an independent country.

The word state can be confusing. It is used to refer to parts of a country (the states of the USA, Mexico, Australia, Germany, Austria, and other countries), but it can also refer to independent nations (e.g., Organization of American States, whose members are countries in the Americas).

Ivory Coast is a "member state" of the United Nations.
