Revisionist state is a term from Power Transition Theory within the wider field of international relations. It is used to describe states.

The term assumes a direct correlation between a state's hegemony, both political and economic, and its standing as either a status quo state or a revisionist state.[1] Powerful and influential nations in international relations such as the United States, United Kingdom, France and other nations like Japan that are better placed in the world order, are likely to fall under the category of status quo states while North Korea, Iran, Russia[2] and other nations dissatisfied with their place in the international system are termed revisionist states.
