Constitutional Representative Diarchies

A form of government where there are two Heads of State, a legislature (usually a Federal Council) and issues are voted on by public, presented to the Council, then signed by both Diarchs (usually dukes).


Presidential System

Where the President acts as both Head of State and Head of Government, such as is used in the United States. The Presidency is most often seperate from the legislature, but it sometimes elected by it, as is the case in San Marino.

Semi-Presidential System

Where the president acts as the Head of State, but only exercises some executive power, with the remainder being exercised by another Head of Government such as a Prime Minister, such as is used in France and Russia.

Bi-Presidential System

Where there are two presidents that act equally as co-Heads of State and Heads of Government. A good example of this would be the Roman Republic and its Consul system

Parliamentary Republic

This is where there is a clear distinction between the Head of State and Head of Government. Usually a Prime Minister or Premier etc acts as the executive (Head of Government) whilst a President acts as a Head of State with little power, such as is used in Germany.

Republic with Captains Regent

This is where there are two equal Captains Regent, instead of President. Both Captains Regent are Heads of the State, like in San Marino.

Dictatorship (sometimes known as a "Democratic Republic")

This is in which a leader of a nation holds all power although is 'freely elected'. Dictators usually take charge unfairly and often against the will of the people though they claim there nations to be fair nations. This can be caused by rigging an election, invading or numerous other reasons. An example of this would be Zimbabwe.

Noble Republic

This is a form of Republic where the government, like the British House of Lords, is ruled by nobles, such Knights, Lords, and the like. Felbah is, at present, the only example of this government in the Micronational community.

Marxist-Socialist Republics

This is a form of a Republic or possibly a Democratic Republic where the constitution guarantees Marxism in the country. This can be done with methods such a Vanguard Party veto, a "Worker's Council" and more. The system of the republic can be diverse with some being more democratic than others, the underlining feature is that they have a political philosophy based on Marxism or similar ideologies. Cuba is a good example of this system.

Direct Democracy

When there is a congress which is, in most cases, the only body of the government. Legislative power is not vested in a representative body, but rather by the population of the country. Switzerland has what is perhaps the nearest national system in the world to a direct democracy.

Partially direct democracy

In a partially direct democracy, the people have the legislative power, but the government has legislative power as well. Usually the people can initiate a referendum, prevent the elected representatives from passing a law, and other similar things.


Constitutional Monarchy with ceremonial Head of State

Executive power is exercised by the Head of Government. The monarch is the Head of State and is powerless or exercises limited power with the consent of the government, executive or population. This system is currently used by most macronations with monarchies, such as the United Kingdom.

Constitutional Monarchy with active monarchs

The elected Head of Government remains the primary executive, but the Head of State still retains some executive or shared power and is usually active in politics, as is the case in Monaco and Liechtenstein. The power of the monarch is usually reserved for use at their own discretion rather than requiring the consent of another body.

Absolute Monarchy

A monarch is the sole Head of State, and thus is granted limitless political authority.


A state where a religion is the most important element in the running of the state.

Single-Party States

A state where the majority, if not all, political power is entrusted in a single official political party.
