It is a mixture of two words, feudal and vassal (as a noun). Feudal pertained to Europe's legal and military customs existing from the 9th to the 15th century, and vassal meant a subservient state or country.

So when combined, it referred to a state that was under the control of another country inside of a medieval system.
