Government Information

The term "government" refers to the political direction and control exercised over the actions of the members, citizens, or inhabitants of communities, societies, and states, or their political administration.  Although government is part of political science, the term “government” refers to the group of people running the country whereas political science would refer to the processes engaged in trying to govern the country. This guide will concentrate mainly on governance through legislation, law, and the historical basis for such.
