GOVERNMENT AND ECONOMY


Copyright 2009 LessonSnips www.lessonsnips.com
Types of Government


Reading and Discussion


There are several different types of government, but before examining them, it is

important to understand what is meant by government.


A government is a ruling power in a political society. It has the authority to make laws,

resolve disputes, and issue administrative decisions. In other words, a government is

responsible for providing order and stability to a nation, state, or country. Some of the

most common types of government are:


 democracy

 monarchy

 totalitarian

 theocracy

 aristocracy

 dictatorship


Democracy means “rule by the people.” In this type of government, power is held by

the people, using a free electoral system. The United States of America is a democracy.

The people rule by electing others to represent them in government.


A monarchy is a system by which a nation is ruled by a king or queen. Power is passed

down through the ruling family. The ruling family may be referred to as the Royal

Family, and the next king or queen is usually a child of the current king or queen.

Jordan is an example of a country that operates as a monarchy.


In a totalitarian government, the nation is ruled by one political party. People are

typically forced to do what the government tells them to do.


Theocracy is a form of government controlled by people who base the nation's laws on

religious ideas. Sometimes, the rulers are said to act as agents for a particular deity.


An aristocracy is ruled by the aristocrats who are usually educated, wealthy people.

Many monarchies have been ruled by aristocrats. While a monarchy is ruled by the king

or queen, an aristocracy can be ruled by any collection of aristocrats.


A dictatorship is a system under which a single, unelected leader uses force or

coercion to keep control. In a military dictatorship, the army is in control of the nation.

Typically, little attention is paid to individuals, personal freedoms, or public opinion.


When discussing types of governments, another important term to consider is anarchy.

Anarchy is a chaotic situation where there is no government. This can happen after a

revolution or a civil war, usually because the previous government failed, and rival

groups are trying to replace it.
