This page is intended to help in the development of a shared global history.
The table below illustrates political alignments of countries in the 20th century. When adding your country to the table consider the following:
democracy or dictatorship?
- is your government system democratic or autocratic? (i.e. democracy or dictatorship). Autocratic governments can have previously been elected; de-facto autocracies should be entered as 'dictatorship'.
- is your country a constitutional or absolute monarchy? Absolute monarchies, whereby a ruler (often hereditary) has absolute or near-absolute power should be entered as 'dictatorship'. Constitutional or parliamentary monarchies (with e.g. a Prime Minister) are likely to be democracies.
- is your country a one party state, where one political party controls politics to the exclusion of other parties or factions? One party states should be entered as 'dictatorship'.
- does your country have a benign dictator or is it subject to a 'dictablanda'? - still, 'dictatorship'.
- is your government elected by some or all of the population? Countries with suffrage of a majority of the population should be entered as 'democracy' (and the arguments about the remainder of the population can follow). If minority suffrage then 'other' or possibly 'dictatorship'.
- Countries in a state of civil war, with no practical government or with other 'unusual' systems should be entered as 'anarchy/other'.
left- or right-leaning?
- if your country focusses more on equality, income distribution and state intervention, go for 'left-leaning'.
- if your country focusses on the rights of the individual and economic freedom, go for 'right-leaning'.
- others, or not strongly either way, 'centrist'.

- Paroyan Civil War (1911-1918), government dismissed, anarchy republic

The list is intended as another way to identify possible 20th century powerblocks in OGF. Colonies, ideological alignments and government systems can be included. You may also want to refer to 'rogue leaders' or 'mutual defense treaties' in the notes column. The column for ownership is intended to facilitate co-operation to develop a shared history. Please add you country to the page.
Bear in mind this is an overview table & keep notes to a minimum - or add notes at the bottom (as for Mauretia).

- Although Demirhanlı Devleti has functional parliament and free elections, the constitution de facto grants sultan nearly absolute power if only he would take it (what happened twice: in years 1882-1885 and in 1963)
- Mauretia may best be classified as a democratic parliamentary monarchy, because power is split between the elected parliament and the monarch with checks to prevent one from ever dominating the other.
- Myrcia: strongly anti-fascist with strong socialist/communist movements 1940s-present
- Paroy: Strong anarchism and partly socialism in the 1930's, nowadays still radical anarchism groups
