Great Britain --One of the more stable governments on Earth. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the formal name) is both a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy. Like all true democracies, the power lies with the voting public, not with the monarch (currently Queen Elizabeth II).


Japan--With a constitution written by an American following World War Two, Japan (the real name of the country is Nippon), is also both a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy.


France--France is a democracy, and the current government is called the Fifth Republic, meaning that four other types of republican systems preceded it. French democracy began in 1792 as a result of the French Revolution.
