Governments of the known World

A government is a body that has the power to make, and the authority to enforce rules and laws within a civil, corporate, religious, academic, or other organization or group. In its broadest sense, “to govern” means to rule over or supervise, whether over a state, a set group of people, or a collection of people.
The government consists of different levels: local government, regional governments and national governments, depending on closeness to those who are governed and their responsibilities. The governments can be classified in various ways: The classical way of classification is according to the number of people who hold the power (one, a few, or a majority). The more recent classification bases itself on the institutional organization (parliamentary or presidential systems) or the distribution and the degree of control exercised over the society.
