Leading State: States at the vanguard of human prosperity. Power Cap thresholds for transferring to Leading States cannot be modified and will be preset to the lowest; Leading States cannot issue Special Invites.
Inactive States: Only a few Chiefs remain actively involved. Transferring here seems ill-advised.
Note: Both States have different transfer limits. The transfer limit of an Inactive State is 50 whereas a Leading State is 10. When a State has available Special Invites, then it can invite more Chiefs even after reaching its transfer limit.
