Forms of Government: Conclusion

There are hundreds of categories & subcategories of government types. And, in reality, this list is possibly infinite. There are probably as many ideas on how people should be governed as there are human beings.

There are several forms that I did not cover in this series mainly because I may be covering them in another series later on, such as, communism, socialism, & fascism.

Here are a few other types & a very brief description:
  • Dictatorship - a form of government in which a person or group holds complete authority without restriction of laws or a constitution and the people do not have the right choose their own leaders
  • Ecclesiastical - ruled by a church or religious group
  • Technocracy - a form of government in which engineers, scientist, & other technical experts are in control of decision making in their respective fields
  • Theocracy - a government that a deity is recognized as the supreme ruler but the god’s laws are interpreted by ecclesiastical authorities (bishops, priests, mullahs, etc…)
