Constitutional Monarchy A government where the King or Queen acts as "head of state." Power to make and enforce laws is made by elected representatives.
Anarchy The complete absence of government.
Representative Democracy This system relies on elected representatives to make government decisions. Through these representatives, everyone gets a voice in the government.
Absolute Monarchy Leaders rule by "divine rights" and power usually passes to a family member from generation to generation; this leader still rules with complete power.
Dictatorship One leader takes over by force, usually with military support and makes all the decisions themselves.
Theocracy A group of religious leaders makes all government decisions.
Direct Democracy The people vote on decisions and laws directly, without representation.
Communism An economic and government system. This government spreads out wealth (money) equally to all citizens.
