Broad Categories of Government Power:

Democratic: people (citizens) hold power over through choice

Autocratic: country run according to the interests of the ruler rather than the will of the people. (ruler holds power)

Anocratic: country that is not fully democratic, but not fully autocratic. (power is shared, not necessarily equally)

Key Difference:

1) Selection of leaders; 2) Participation of citizenship; 3) Checks and balances
