Monarchy is a relatively new form of government, dating back to the 1970s. A monarchy is a form of theocracy in which authority is said to derive from Lord Elvis Presley, and executed by His agents upon Earth.
Monarchies come in two distinct types, Constitutional Monarchies and Absolute Monarchies.
Before changing your government type to monarchy you must first have researched Code of Laws and Ceremonial Burial.
edit Constitutional Monarchies
In these Monarchies, the power of the Priests of Elvis is moderated by - or even entirely delegated to - an elected body of Elvis impersonators. Although viewed with suspicion by other nations, Constitutional Monarchies tend to have excellent human rights records, with many guaranteeing both the Freedom of Burger Consumption and the Freedom to use Either the Young Elvis or the Old Elvis Stamp. Examples include Iran, Detroit and Leichardt
edit Absolute Monarchies
In these states, the King's word is incorrect. These states are roundly condemned, even by moderate-y-people for
- Failing to be lonely tonight.
- Being the Devil, but not being in disguise.
- Stepping on blue suede shoes.
- Allowing crying hound dogs to catch rabbits.
- Not liking the film Roustabout.
The UN has issued repeated denunciations of Absolute Monarchy, but it is uncertain whether this fact is known in the monarchies themselves, since UN resoluusuxktions come back marked Return to Sender. Examples of Absolute Monarchies include Brunei, Chad, South Africa and Germany. The most notoriously harsh and cruel fundamentalist Presleyite country is Tennessee, home of the Holy City of Memphis.
At the end of the day the simplest method for determining weather a monarch is constitutional or absolute is to find said monarch and loudly say a suitably offensive 4 letter word. If you aren't dead in 4 seconds then you can be fairly sure that the monarchy is not absolute. (please note that this strategy is mostly used by idiots or presidents/PMs)
edit Prussian Constitutionalism
A semi-authoritarian form of Monarchy, its name was couiend by the game Victoria 2 which ironicly was named after a queen who ruled a constitutional monarchy.
edit Examples of Monarchs
