l’état d’exception

a little translation question:

“l’état d’exception”

i know what it means – a state which due to some crisis doesn’t follow the rule of law. any idea how to translate it though? “authoritarian state”, “martial law” and “autocracy” are all in the neighbourhood but definitely not at the right address…

let me know if you can…
