    How do you express that a country has lost its functions as a state (like administration, military and so on)?

    Perhaps 國家喪失機能 ?

    國家喪失機能, maybe. Or 喪失機能的國家, if you want a noun phrase.
    Anyway, it depends on the context. Is there an English or Franch term for that?

    Yeah, 喪失國家機能 fits perfectly. There are some other commonly used expressions like 國家機能癱瘓, 政府功能停擺, 跛腳政府, and so on.
