Inherent powers are powers that neither the national government nor any of the states can exercise. These powers are over and beyond those explicitly spelled out in the Constitution and are only implied from express grants.

When were national governments invented?

National governments were never "invented" in the formal sense, yet many thinkers argue that there exists a symbolic "social contract" which lay the ground for the creation of civil societies, or governments; look at Locke and Rousseau especially for this. The earliest known national government was seated in Ur, the capital of Sumer, the oldest known human civilization, approximately 7500 years ago; it bore little resemblance to modern governments because it was neither limited in power nor accountable to its subjects, and until the first version of the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, almost no government was.

Does a unitary system of government give states the most power?

No, a unitary system of government is centralized and usually presented as a counterpart to federalism. Unitary countries utilize a strong national government that holds complete authority over local governments, and devolves/reserves powers at will.This is in contrast to federations (countries that operate under federalist systems) where the national government works in tandem with local governments, and both retain explicitly reserved powers that neither can infringe upon. In the US, states maintain significance influence on internal affairs under this system, a privilege they would be unable to enjoy if the US were a unitary country.Current examples of unitary countries include the United Kingdom, France, and China. Examples of federations include the United States, Russia, and (according to some) the European Union as a political entity.
