A Council of State is the name of a governmental body in a country or subdivision thereof, with a function that varies by jurisdiction. It may be the formal name for the cabinet or refer to a non-executive advisory body surrounding a head of state. In some countries it has also a function as a supreme administrative court and is thus sometimes regarded as the equivalent of a privy council.
