Oligarchy is when only a small group of people rule a society. This group can pertain to ethnicity, social classes, or political parties. In animal farm the only the pigs were the rulers of the rest of the farm.
A dictatorship is where there is only one leader over all of the people. He has complete control over what goes. In 1984 Big Brother is the evil dictator that even controls history as well as the future.
A monarchy is where there is a King or a Queen who rules. Usually the power is passed down through a bloodline and they are very selective. King Arthur is an example of a monarchy that rules in Camelot.
Anarchy occurs when there is no leader and therefore no order. Every gets to do what they want and no one can tell them they can't In the Lord of the Flies the kids go from democracy to anarchy.
