World governments The overview


Anarchy is the condition of a society, entity, group of people, or a single person that rejects hierarchy. It originally meant leaderlessness, but in 1840, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon adopted the term in his treatise What Is Property? to refer to a new political philosophy, anarchism, which advocates stateless societies based on voluntary associations. We would use this for of government or lack of it so to speak on a smaller scale or a government withdrawal.

Communism is a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs. we could use this for of government on a larger scale to make it more fair for the community members. Also communism is most associated with Russia.


democracy is a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives. We have this type of government in The united stated. This is a good way to run a large country to make it easier to vote on things.


Dictatorship is a form of government where a country is ruled by one person or political entity, and exercised through various mechanisms to ensure the entity's power remains strong. A dictatorship is a type of authoritarianism, in which politicians regulate nearly every aspect of the public and private behavior of citizens. Modern day dictaterships are like North Korea and Fiji. This is not a good government for modern times. It would be better in earlier times.


A monarchy is a form of government in which sovereignty is actually or nominally embodied in one individual reigning until death or abdication. They are called monarchs. Forms of monarchy differ widely based on the level of legal autonomy the monarch holds in governance, the method of selection of the monarch, and any predetermined limits on the length of their tenure. This government is used in European country's such as England. There are also different forms of monarchy as well like complete or partial monarchy.


Oligarchy is a small group of people having control of a country, organization, or institution. This is good for a small tribe or a smaller country because whatever these people say goes. Often these people would be the wiser old members of the community,


A republic is a form of government or country in which power resides in elected individuals representing the citizen body and government leaders exercise power according to the rule of law. In modern times, the definition of a republic is commonly limited to a government which excludes a monarch. This is the other half of America's government. This is useful because the community members get a say in who they have as a government official.


Socialism is a social and economic system characterized by social ownership of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy, as well as a political theory and movement that aims at the establishment of such a system. This would work well in a small group of people because having to much of this would lead to disagreements among large groups.
