Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. This is a list of countries categorised by system of government. In the social sciences, the term government refers to the particular group of people which is the administrative bureaucracy of a society at a given time. States are served by a continuous succession of different governments. Each successive government is composed of a specialized and privileged body of individuals, who monopolize political decision-making, and are separated by status and organization from the population as a whole. Their function is to enforce existing laws, legislate new ones, and arbitrate conflicts via their monopoly on violence. In some societies, this group is often a self-perpetuating or hereditary class. In other societies, such as democracies, the political roles remain, but there is frequent turnover of the people actually filling the positions.show more
