In this documentary, in the form of a satellite map, you can trace the good, the bad, and the troubled forms Republican government. Learn about the different types of Republics: Arab Republics, Confederal Republics, Federal Republics, Islamic Republics, People’s Republics, Socialist Republics, and Unitary Republics. Some of them are excellent examples of representative government. Others will surprise you in that they are some of the most troubled areas of the world, where terrorism, war, revolution, fiscal crisis, corruption, the worst human right violations, apartheid, and wide spread genocide have occurred.

The Republics plotted in this map were determined from Wikipedia’s List of Republics. Each Republic plotted is linked to a Wikipedia page that explains what form of Republic it has.
