A Single-party state, alternatively known as a One party state, is a system of government in which there is only one legal Political Party or in which restrictions on minor political parties ensure that the largest Party remains in power. Although some Single-party states allow a coalition government of several parties, as in the People's Republic of China where eight parties are subordinate to the Chinese Communist Party, it is extremely rare for opposition parties to exist in single-party states. Single-party systems are popular both amongst Communist and Fascist States, both such political systems asserting that the ruling Party must remain in power for the interests of the People.[1]


The Republic of Rino Island is a micronation where de facto there is a hegemonic party, the National Unity Party, coexisting with two subordinate minority parties: the Christian Social Party and the Workers' Party.[2] There are no relevant opposition parties, and independent candidates rarely surpass the candidates of the majority coalition.
