Limited vs. Unlimited

Limited Government

A government in which everyone, including those in authority, must obey the laws. This is common in Western culture. The U.S. constitution is a document that is an example of limiting the power of government.


Somalia has a very limited government.

Unlimited Government

A government in which no limits are imposed on the ruler's authority. The leaders don't have to follow the same laws as everyone else.

North Korea

North Korea has an extremely unlimited government.
