Quite true Ace, now if only certain countries actually had real democracies and didn't pretend they did, like the US and that daft voting system.

Well technically we don't have a Democracy and never have, the Republic that we always wanted and intended is well in place. Even the electoral college is just another form of Republic (the voting for people to act on your behalf). However the term Democracy has been broadened to cover not just the system in which everyone votes on every issue but also to cover any system that allows for open elections of officials. Using the modern term our Democracy remains strong (though not without it's hiccups).

Feud wins hands down. Theocracyis a no-brainer. (But only if you interpret theocracy like the good folks at uncyclopedia ...)

As for the poll, I'd say anarcho-communist. Which sounds awful as a word, but would probably be a very nice society to live in. Almost definitely unattainable though.

Heh, Hungry Hungry Oprahs. Used to have a variation of that game as a kid. Loads of fun. :wink:

Edit: I meant to say earlier, this is why you leave polls to the professionals. Too bad they're like contractors though, overpaid, late, grouchy when you question them, and the only way to get a decent job done. :P
