There is, in principle, no limit to the dimension of the state space of a quantum system. This includes infinite dimension (usually countable, i.e. a separable Hilbert space) and any large but finite dimension. In the context of quantum information, systems with a state space of dimension $d\geq 2$ are usually called qudits. It's also important to mention ...
