I use the term to refer to the concept developed by Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri in Empire. I was just trying to explain what it meant in an admittedly overly simplified manner. I don't think the State suffices to describe what I mean by Empire. I don't think that Capital does either. It bothers me a bit that you have to read the text in order to sort out what I'm on about, but, I don't think that I've adopted a "private" vocabulary. They go on about it for 413 pages. I don't have an effective summary of the term.
