    • Systems of Governments
    • To study governments, geographers look at the following:
      • Types – Who rules and who participates.
      • Systems – How the power is distributed.
    • Systems of Government are based on one question: How is the power distributed?
      • There are three ways governments distribute power:
        • Unitary
        • Confederation
        • Federal
    • Unitary
      • One central government controls everything.
      • Power is not shared between states, counties, or provinces.
      • Examples : United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, and Spain

      • Two Options:
        • A. A voluntary or weak association of independent states that agrees to follow a powerful central government.
        • B. Nations can choose to follow or not follow the lead of the weak central government.
      • Examples: Confederate States of America
      • ( 1861-1865), Russian Federation.
