Political status
The remaining blank spaces in my posts reflects a second feature in this project, where every post
is defined according to political status and democratic level.
We have defined up to 60 different forms of political system, according to what
institutions existing (President/Monarch, Prime minister, government and parliament).
How these are elected and related to each other, and how the balance of power
is. This according to legislative and executive powers, and exclusive or conditional
decision. Further on we study the democratic level, roughly divided into five groups
from actual democracy to authoritarian state. Finally every coup d'etat and
declaration of martial law makes a separate status. The changes in our project
occurs whereas a country transfers from one political status to another.
Every political status is marked with a democratic rank(From Parliamentarism-98
to Absolutism-1).

To define a political status we use a number of terms, Parliamentarian,
Presidential, Authortarian, Hierarchial, Totalitarian, Military, Protectoritarian,
Executivian, Royal.

In order to duplicte these we use a sries of prefixes such as X-, Sub, Semi,
Uni,Nano and A-. Finally we use (*)in a variety of forms to determine the democratic level.

The blank spaces in our posts is to contain a)Political status, b)Democratic rank
c)Previous status, d)Democratic rank, e) Democratic change +/-

This feature is exclusive since it enables you to select a specific date, compare what
political status and democratic level every state is at, and receive an average
democratic level of all state at a given date. And compare this with any other date
and hence compare how the democratic level of the world between dates.
