    Ah China, Turkey and even Russia. "People's Republics" that don't actually allow the people have any say.

      Sure they do. "People" have a say, for a given definition of people. Just like in the Good Old U.S. of A!

        You beat me to it :)

        People say that weighing the influence of people by, say, intelligence, or level of education, is "undemocratic" and therefore evil. But apparently weighing by amount of money in the bank is perfectly OK.

        Every regime, no matter how crazy, will pretend to be democratic just because it's good politics. Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, and, yes, the US, are all "democracies". The only difference is how the votes are weighed.

      Russia at least pretends to hold an election.

      The type of government can be determined from the name:

      "People's Republic" = communism

      "Democratic People's Republic" = dictatorship

        You forgot:

        “Bolivarian Republic” = coprocracy
