Why default government is Democracy?

Post by samuel_1991 »

As title, I understand that Canadians are ruled by a democratic government. However, during the rapid decolonization era, most of the new countries are actually military junta (Indonesia, Taiwan after retreat of civil war, South Korea, South Vietnam and the African nations), and few of them are even communist (Angola, North Vietnam, Mao's China, North Korea etc.).

Wouldn't it be better that there is a 60% dictatorship (Ala junta), 30% democracy (Who else other than Malaysia / Singapore?), and 10% Communism chance more realistic?

If a democracy becomes dictatorship, there is no way back, in this game. So I think it's good that countries are by default democratic. Otherwise if you play a very long game, too many countries can become dictatorships. By making new countries democracies by default, in counterbalances the inability of dictatorships to become democratic again. That being said, I wish there was some way for communist, monarchic, etc countries to have a chance of appearing but that must be a super low priority really.

Lol...... I thought there is a coup function and therefore a coup should be available as a shuffle as in:

- Dictatorship to Dictatorship (African countries)
- Dictatorship to Communism (Cuba, Afghanistan)
- Monarchy to Theocracy (Iran Revolution in 1979)
- Dictatorship to Democracy (Typically military leaders in Thailand does this and the monarch is just a figurehead)
- Democracy to Dictatorship (Adolf Hitler....)

In fact, there are democratically elected socialists and I wonder how can a government run like a Central Planning Economy in reality instead of Communism in name only per in-game, lol
