I have been given an assignment in one of my Computer Science classes where I have to give a design for a game we're supposed to develop. Without getting into too much detail, the game is about people forming nations with their own sets of rules, and the game clearly has to be able to support various types of government, such as a democracy, communism, etc... I'd like to come up with a brief list of types of government without getting into the nitty-gritty of stuff like "constitutional monarchy" and "Family dictatorship" as seen on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Forms_of_government. This is supposed to be fairly basic, so I'd like to be able to cover all the bases with as few categories as possible..
So I have the following already, but I don't know if some of them are really distinct, or if they can be combined into one..
Are there any others I should consider?
