Asked in Russia
What government is Russia?
The government of Russia is what we would call a federation and semi-presidential republic. What this means, is that Russia is union of self-governing regions united by a central, federal government. The term semi-presidential refers to a sharing of day-to-day powers and administration of the state by both the president and the prime minister. The term republic indicates that ultimately the people (the citizens of the country) have supreme control over the government because they have the ability to elect leaders and if those leaders don't do what they are elected to do they can elect different leaders.

Asked in China and Chinese Territories
Why can't we call china a democratic nation?
China is ruled by a small group of people who choose their own successors; this is officially categorized as a self perpetuating oligarchy. The Chinese prefer to call it communism. Democracy would require that the general population be allowed to elect their own government. That doesn't happen in China.

Asked in Ireland
What is the reason for Ireland's current government?
The reason for Ireland having a government is democracy, so the current government (March 2013) are there because the Irish people elected them in 2011. It is a coalition of Fine Gael and Labour. An Irish government can stay in power for up to 5 years before a new election is needed. This government could be in power until 2016. If the people wanted to, they could re-elect them then. It is also possible for a government to call an election at any time, so the next Irish General Election could be before 2016.
