Who hold the power or where is the power centered?

when we ask the question, we find that governments fall into two main groups. in some governments the pwoer is centered in just one or a few people who rule all the others. the big bosses make all the decisions, and the citizens have nothing to say about it. this form of government, which centers power in the hands of just one or a few supreme rulers, called Autocracy. in other main groups of governments, however, the power is not in the hands of one or few people. it is spread out among all the citizens share in making governmental decisions. this form of government is more familiar to us. it is called Democracy

How does government affect you?

The way of life of the citizens of a country is greatly affected by that nations government. Examples are many, however, here are some basic reasons how people are affected: * A totalitarian government limits the freedom of its people. It can strike fear into all of the nations people whether they are near the "top" of the government's power structure or well beneath it; * Governments can enact laws that discriminate against minorities within the country. This can ferment into conflicts and violence among the countries citizens; * Governments can use their power to tax, in order to punish suspected enemies of the State. Placing high taxes on any group of people or on organizations and businesses can control them; and * Governments can make certain products people use and like to be illegal. Prohibition in the United States is a perfect example of this.

How much money does the government make?

Not really sure which Government you are asking about. Generally speaking Governments are not a business and do not operate to make a profit. Governments usually spend money that is collected on their behalf of the citizens they govern in the form of taxes. The more citizens under the governments reign... and the higher the tax base will dictate how much money is at the disposal of any government. In other words more people and higher the taxes means more money that come to the governments hands.

How does a government affect the people who live in the country?

The effect of a government on its citizens depends on the type of government. A governmenet's purpose is to protect the people. But often governments have proven to rule instead of protecting. For example Cuba, North Korea, or pre-WW2 Germany had total control of their citizens, feeding them lies and teaching them to hate someone or that they are not good enough. These citizens were always bombarded with propaganda. But other governments have been proven to work. The US is a perfect example. We have rights and protect those rights and freedoms. Kkeep in mind that your freedom stops when you threaten someone else's physical freedom. Also, this does not include economic freedom; if you get yourself in a rat hole then you're there until you get yourself out). It's complex and takes years to study, but keep this in mind, it affects people's entire life.
