In the letters

Tolkien says at one point, presumably with a bit of joking exaggeration, that he would like to execute anyone who used the word "state" in its modern sense.

He also was skeptical to say the least of the whole idea of the Great Britain and especially as a commonwealth/empire (the readings of LotR as nostalgia for the declining British empire are mistaken). On the other hand, he was very much an old-school English loyalist to the point of being bitter about 1066 and wary about French influence in English cooking!
