Legend[ ]

English (en):  World's states coloured by form of government.
   Parliamentary republics with an executive presidency dependent on the legislature.
   Parliamentary constitutional monarchies in which the monarch does not personally exercise power.
   Dual system constitutional monarchies in which the monarch personally exercises power (often alongside a weak parliament).
   Countries in which constitutional provisions for government have been suspended (e.g. Military dictatorships)
   Countries which do not fit any of the above systems. (e.g. Transitional governments)
   No government.
Note that several states constitutionally deemed to be multiparty republics are broadly described by outsiders as authoritarian states. This chart aims to represent
de jure
form of government, not
de facto
degree of democracy.
