Here is my best explanation:

'green room' is the definition.

The answer and definition can be both locations as well as being singular nouns.

Maybe they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'state of rem' is the subsidiary indication.

'state' becomes 'or'.

'of rem' becomes 'egon' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).

'or'+'egon'='oregon'

'leaving' is the link.
