Democracy Index Map[edit]

Suggestion to delete this map. There's no mention anywhere else in the article of "flawed democracies", "hybrid regimes" or "authoritarian regimes", so the map is presented without useful context. Labeling countries as authoritarian without further explanation may also violate NPOV. Lastly, the map has not been kept up to date for the past five years.

Errors in definition to government[edit]

Definition of constitution 1a : the basic principles and laws of a nation, state, or social group that determine the powers and duties of the government and guarantee certain rights to the people in it.

Unconstitutional the opposite Antonyms & Near Antonyms for unconstitutional. lawful, legal, legit.

Conclusion from above definitions.



Opposite constitutional definition



Personal/Individual .


lawful, legal, licit.

By constitutional definition



Public/Peoples .

Antonyms are not same as synonyms.Private and government are two different sectors and are not same upon meaning and constitutional view.

Definitions -

A group is a number of persons or things that are located, gathered, or classed together.

A community is an individual unit (a group of living things) with commonality such as place, norms, religion, values, customs, or identity.

Conclusion from above definitions.

"Community" consisting of "Group" are both a set of individuals/personals that opposes constitution to be unconstitutional.

Incorrect definition-

"Government is the system or group of people governing an organized community, often a state."

Above quotation consists of "group" and "community" shows personal/individual which defines unconstitutional and it is a social misbehaviour. These words are spoiling the definition of government.

Capitalization/Privatization is the evidence of inhumanity in being inhuman on earth.

Correct definition-

"Government is the system of people governing often a state." — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:47, 24 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Map removal[edit]

I have removed not anywhere published and not sourced "National governments which self-identify as democracies" status map as it belongs for more into topic detailed page democracy where already is. This is one general overview article, and the only POV pushing view would be to keep that map considering to some of the most autocratic regimes claim democratic form of government but no one of experts, or media and so on take that as something serious or even partial true.

@Nubia86: The other map uses data from a US-government funded American think tank and so isn't unbiased; having only that map by itself pushes its POV. Having it next a map of countries that self-identify as democracy provides a alternative view. I'd agree that keeping only the map for self-identification would push a POV, but having both next to each other allows the reader to compare them and come to their own conclusions. If anything, having both next to each other makes the point that self-identification isn't always trustworthy much clearer because readers don't necessarily have previous knowledge about which countries self-identify as democracies, so seeing the Freedom in the World survery map by itself without anything to compare it to would not illustrate how self-identification can be unreliable.
Keeping both maps improves neutrality and is more informative for the reader than either map would be by itself. – Scyrme (talk) 17:02, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
