What is the benefit of having a trademark registered at the federal level? Will this allow protection over the entire country? Can i register it at the state level and have protection in other states?

Yes, a federally registered trademark gives you protection in all 50 states, regardless of whether you are doing business in that state. If you only register it at the state level, that only covers that state and uses in any other state will have to rely on common law trademark protections, which are limited.
