When we speak of political systems, it’s difficult to determine what the most common types are. After all, many political systems are similar, or have similar roots. Many countries actually have republics of some kind — variants of democracy. As you study political science, it can be helpful to understand some of the most common types of political systems from around the world.

Some of the five more common political systems around the world include:

  1. Democracy: A democracy is a political system that allows for each individual to participate.
  2. Republic: a republic is a political system in which the government remains mostly subject to those governed. Some scholars define any political system in which the citizens legitimize the government. 
  3. Monarchy:  In this type of monarchy, the ruler is the head of state, but a constitution limits the power, and others make laws. The U.K., Denmark, Kuwait, Spain, Sweden, Tuvalu, and many more are examples of constitutional monarchies. 
  4. Communism: a communist state is based on the ideology of communism as taught by Marx and/or Lenin. However, some argue that these political systems are not true to the ideals espoused by these revolutionary thinkers. Communist states are often dominated by a single party, or a group of people
  5. Dictatorship: Normally, a dictator is the main individual ruling the country. While there are lackeys and others who work for the dictator, he or she makes most of the decisions, and usually has enforcers. In some cases, the political system is run by a small group of people.
Capitalism is not a political system, it is an economic system and a mode of production in which trade, industries, and the means of production are largely or entirely privately owned and operated for profit
Egalitarianism : It is defined either as a political doctrine that all people should be treated as equals and have the same , economics, social and  or as a social philosophy advocating or  the decentralization of the power
