    You will often see systems of governments described based on what kinds of people within the society typically hold power. Based on what's in the past exams can expect at least one of these terms will show up this year. So get very familiar with them.

    - Aristocracy - Power is in the hands of the highest class of people in a society
    - Autocracy - Absolute power is in the hands of one person
    - Constitutional mornach - Power is shared between a King or Queen and a parliament
    - Democracy - Power is in the hands of the people
    - Gerontocracy - Power is in the hands of old people
    - Monarchy - Power is in the hands of nobility (i.e. royal families)
    - Theocracy - Power is in the hands of religious leaders

    Can you name countries that have these types of government systems?
