I want to spice up my history essay a bit, and saying that a state "collapsed" is a cliche. Can I say that it imploded?

    imploded is entirely different from collapsed, try using downfall, breakdown, debacle or cave-in :)

    If the state actually imploded, sure. Use it.

    as an analogy imploded works, especially if the 'collapse' originates from within the state

    I think "imploded" would do fine.....
