                    Government Types

                    Pretty much, on research of my own, I broke down gov types to these:

                    ANARCHY:
                    Mobarchic (Rule by mob) NOT YET TRIED
                    Capitalist (Private enterprise provides for everything) NOT YET TRIED
                    Communist (Rule by unions) NOT YET TRIED

                    AUTOCRACY:
                    Despostic (Leader is a dictator/despot - NOT HEREDITARY) ROMAN EMPIRE AFTER CAESAR
                    Monarchic (Leader is a king - HEREDITARY) OLD ENGLISH EMPIRE

                    OLIGARCHY:
                    Aristocratic (Elite family groups control government.  HEREDITARY) ENGISH HOUSE OF LORDS
                    Plutocratic  (Elite group determined by social standing) NOT YET TRIED
                    Timocratic  (Elite group determined by money) NOT YET TRIED

                    DEMOCRACY:
                    Representative (People vote for representatives to make laws) AMERICA
                    Direct (People vote on laws directly) SWITZERLAND
                    Monarchic (Ceremonial king/queen) MODERN ENGLAND

                    THEOCRACY:
                    Ecclesiocracegatic (Rule by Church or anologous religious leader) JESUS AND HIS FOLLOWERS BEFORE HIS DEATH
                    Caesaropapic (Rule by those who claim to rule for their church) THE VATICAN

                    If enough people request it, I may possibly in the future make a map-making tutorial, maybe.

                    This looks like it'll be a good list.

                    Oh, I was wondering when someone was going to come around with this. Nice research Brandon.

                    Because he is just as lazy as you! :P

                    Nice idea Brandon!

                    Btw: Can the "Creature Parts - Ideas for your Creatures" thread be unstickied now that there is a link directing to it in another sticky?
                    There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

                    Probably, it isn't used very often.

                    You should add Bryce 5.5 onto the list.  Its helped me a lot on my creations.
