Our Goal Today
  • Governments come in many forms democratic or
    dictatorship, unitary or federal, presidential or

5
How do we classify a government?
  • Governments come in many shapes, sizes and types.
    How can we identify what type of government a
    state practices?

6
Three Classifications
  • 1) Who is allowed to participate?
  • 2) What is the geographic distribution of the
    government?
  • 3) What is the relationship between the
    legislative branch and the executive branch?

7
Who is allowed to take part?
  • a) Democracy Direct or Indirect The Power to
    VOTE and be involved in the decision-making
    process.
  • b) Dictatorship Autocracy is unlimited rule by
    an individual. Oligarchy is rule by a select few,
    usually self-appointed, leaders.

8
Geography Who is in charge where?
  • a) Unitary Government or centralized government
    - Most governments in the world have this
    'distribution'. One central government controls
    the entire nation.
  • b) Federal Government Power is divided between
    a central government and local governing bodies.
  • c) Confederate Government An alliance of
    independent states with limited central
    government. Currently, the European Union is a
    great example. In our history, the nation's
    beginnings under the Articles of Confederation
    and the southern states becoming the Confederate
    States of America during our Civil War.

9
Executive and Legislative Branches' Relationship
  • Presidential Government The Executive and
    Legislative Branches are independent of each
    other. Each has checks and balances to make sure
    one branch is not more powerful than the other.
  • Parliamentary Government The prime minister is
    the leader of the state but is also a member of
    the legislative branch.
