Abstract: The article analyses different models of social state: European, Arabic, Paleo­American and Soviet models. The author believes that the form of government (political regime) does not exert any influence on the essence of social state. The principle of social justice is considered and its mathematical equation is provided. The paper supports the assumption that economic model contradicts the principle of social state since it violates the principle of social justice.

Keywords: Social justice, social state, state management, paternalism, neoliberalism
