Types of government

A Democratic Republic is any form of government that lacks a Monarch in the role of Head of State (Republican) and operates a political system bound to the principles of Democracy. Typically, the term Democratic Republic is used as a title for a nation rather than a term to describe it's sytem of government. This is largely because the term Democratic Republic could be adapted to describe any kind of State without a Monarch - both the People's Republic of China and the United States of America operate a democratic system at some level of government for example, yet neither of these systems has anything in common and few macronations regard the former as a Democratic state.
