I'll tell you about all the different types of governments. Hop on!
Let's say all this money is a group's wealth. This group can be a country, city, or republic. The group that owns this money needs to decide what to spend it on. The people who make these decisions form the government.
"YES" "NOOOOO" "I think yes" "yes"
In an INDIRECT DEMOCRACY, citizens vote for people to represent them in the government and trust them to make decisions on their behalf.
In a DIRECT DEMOCRACY, everyone votes for everything. This means everyone has power and there are no official leaders.
In a FREE MONARCHY, the hereditary queen/king is the ruler of the country and makes the majority of the decisions. Free monarchies are not common nowadays.
DID YOU KNOW that the king or queen can be the monarchy of more than 1 place?
In a CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY, the hereditary king/queen gives royal assent to new laws. There is a constitution that says they can't actually rule the country of their own will.
Another type of government is called an OLIGARCHY. In an oligarchy, a small group of people govern the land. A type of oligarchy is COMMUNISM.
In COMMUNISM, the government decides your jobs for you and no matter what your job is, everyone gets the same pay.
An AUTOCRACY is a government with only 1 person. A type of autocracy is a DICTATORSHIP.
AUTOCRACY and DICTATORSHIP!
A dictatorshp is when the the person usually rules by force and takes the majority of the $ for themselves.
