    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?

    slight correction . I had earlier used the definition of 'autocracy' in place of that of 'aristocracy'. The correction has been made.

    @abdulsalami, the queen of england is above the law! But it is said that not all members of the royal family are. Every country is different. Does anyone know if the President of Nigeria is above the law?
