I would strongly advise against doing this right now. Doing administrative boundaries is challenging and recommended only for advanced users. I recommend starting on a couple of towns first. Once you get the hang of that, the idea of relations will make more sense.

@Alessa has a great point. Not now, you should wait. I tried once, and ended up making my country a state of my neighbor.

Relation is a group of line segments that makes up a boundary. Each segment can be included in several boundaries on same of different levels. Read carefully the instructions.

I you practice making boundary relations, I strongly advice you start with a municipal boundary (admin_level=8) that does not tanger with international boundaries or coastlines. Then make a state (admin_level=4) to practice including the same line segments into a new boundary. Only when you understand how relations work and see them work in the wanted way, make states that tanger with international boundaries or coastlines. This way your trial-and-error learning will not affect other users' work.
