This is the World Events, Politics, Religion, Etc. subforum so I'm assuming this thread belongs here. Otherwise feel free to put it in the Tavern, dear mods.

I've been contemplating some of the metaphorical political realities of AG. What kind of government is in place? Is it democratic? Communist? Libertarian? Is it federalist? And what type of economic and societal enactments are there? Socialist? Capitalist? Where do the governmental functions work and who makes them up? How does AG work as a society?

In short, compare AG to a country.

This is how I see the site:

Government structure:
Largely federalist with a shared autocracy in the highest division, although headed by a chair. The highest division is comprised of the administration with Dan in the top chair. In the second division, the moderators lay. They are subject to a bicameral parliamentary that is somewhat shared with the knights. The knights, in the third division, make up the second half of the parliamentary. The second and third functions work together like Congress: the Senate (moderators) features those with generally more powers and are delegated largely by appointment from the highest division, and the House (knights) features those with generally less powers and are delegated by a mix of popular opinion as well as appointment. Together they come to decisions to present to the highest division. As for branch structure, the legislative branch is comprised of solely the highest division with consideration of Congressional opinion. The executive branch is made up of the Senate and the highest division, with the highest division receiving more power. The judicial branch is fundamentally nonexistent, and is instead infused with the executive.

Economic structure:
For the most part AG is a capitalist society. What you work for is generally what you will receive in terms of post count, Quests, comments, games rated, etc. (easier to compare to AP than it is to current structure).

Societal structure:
Viewpoints are generally correlated with join date. In terms of actual definitions and not vague political considerations, the 2008-2010 people are conservatives because they are against change. The 2010-2011 people are largely moderate: change is good if it can be good. And, from what I have viewed, many from 2011+ are liberal: change is needed! But that can and will definitely vary from person to person.

AG is a benevolent dictatorship. One person (or is it a small group?) holds absolute power and bestows powers on his preferred subjects, who then bestow powers on their favoured subjects within the rules set by the dictator.

There for not a dictatorship

Favored subjects? Knights/mods?

I have some problems with calling this site a dictatorship. This is not a republic or a democracy, but that does not make it a dictatorship.

Oh, thank god you came and cleared that up for us. Here I was, thinking the website was actually a sort of internet oligarchy. I dreamed of the E-UN with 4chan and Google holding intense Skype conference calls about impending sanctions and atrocities against anonkind. My synapses were firing wildly trying to understand the overwhelming amount of E-nations and the power held by such. I was bathed in a cold sweat at the idea of this e-coalition uprising one day, replacing all of our browsers with IE and our font with 3l337.

At least now I can rest easy knowing it is only a discussion on an internet forum about metaphorical political realities.
Phew.
