The republican system is by far the most efficient system in my opinion. You mentioned democracy, I'm not sure what you mean by that. Absolute democracy or what?

if we are talking a about efficiency then the absolute monarchy is the most efficient... 1 man or woman says what they want and it gets done, but an absolute monarchy is tyrannical and causes the nation to violate many human rights violations, and the minority or majority is never heard. just because a government is efficient does not mean it is good. I think that the governments role in society should be to uphold the voices of all people and serve the people. A government should not regulate everything its citizens do, i think the role of the government is to make laws that protect the citizens and not laws that benefit the government officials... i know that is not really possible, but that i would be the best type of government. Also, i agree that a democratic republic is the best from of government that we have right now.

I'd say dictatorship is more efficient than monarchy. There have been several cases of lazy and incompetent reigns.

Denmark actually had a mentally insane leader sometime in the 18th century, he ordered for the stool from the livestock to be dumped down town... and they had to do it.. because he was king.
