GOVERNMENT What do you know about Governments? A government is a system that is set up to help make laws and decisions for a group of people. Governments are designed to keep order in a society by making sure that the citizens are following the rules. There are many different types of governments all over the world. Some governments are ruled by one person, and some governments are ruled by everyone. Either way, the leader or leaders of the government make decisions based on what they think is right. Some examples of different types of governments are: Aristocracy Democracy Dictatorship Anarchy Oligarchy Not all governments are successful, and not all citizens are happy with the government of their country. In the United States, which is a democracy, there are three levels of government, and each branch has a different job to do.
