four forms of Government


Here, the ruler has total power over his/her subjects. Dictators are the sole authority where they rule.

They make the law and execute justice. They exercise their rule forcefully, suppressing their subjects at will.

They impose their will over others and interfere with or limit the freedom of their subjects.

Examples of dictatorship include Germany during the rule of Adolf Hitler, Italy under Benito Mussolini, and Uganda during the rule of Idi Amin Dada.

Democratic Government

whereby rulers regularly seek public mandate by popular vote, based on free and fair election and on the fact that elected officials represent the wishes and aspirations of the people.

In such a government, matters of national importance stem from freedoms and rights provided for in the Constitution, which governs the law of the nation.


In this, a group of people from the highest social classes in a society rule over others.

The queen or king is the head of government, whose senior positions are held by privileged members of the royal family, who are considered as a rear breed of people and who are considered superior to other human beings because of the wealthy family background they are born into in addition to their superior education.


In this, democracy is practiced, but aristocratic power is respected.

In such a government, Parliament is the supreme organ, but the king and the royal family are retained in power as a tradition.

The King or Queen is therefore respected as head of state
