15 Types of *UNITARY Governments *Unitary – Political power is held by one central authority (government). Citizens have little or no power - no voting and personal rights.

16 Autocracy/Dictatorship – one ruler has complete power, usually a military dictatorship. Most autocratic leaders rule until they die, are overthrown, or decide to resign from office. Example: Libya’s ruler is Muammar al Gaddafi and has been the military dictator since 1969 Oligarchy – a group has complete power; usually for corrupt and selfish purposes. Example: The Chinese Communist Party governs China. Theocracy – a group of religious leaders has complete power. Example: Iran’s government is based on Islamic law and ruled by Islamic leaders. Monarchy – the ruler inherits the power from a royal family. Example: Saudi Arabia is led by members of the royal Saud family who pass the leadership down from generation to generation.
