The State in light of the 1978 Constitution
Coat of Arms of Sri Lanka

However, factually the political power (so, the sovereignty) is devolved by the Constitution to other State organs called the Provincial Councils (PC) where each PC can make laws on some comprehensive devolved matters set out in the Consitution, and executive powers are also vested in each PC for those matters, subject to some reasonable restrictions. The whole country is both administratively and politically divided into nine provinces.
