State of wild exaggeration after Texan left (7)
I believe the answer is:
'state' is the definition.
(Georgia is an example)
I can't explain the rest of the clue.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for georgia that I've seen before include "Nation state" , "US state -- Black Sea state" , "Southern US state" , "part of US or USSR formerly" , "Country on the Black Sea, where Stalin was born" .)
