Governments are generally antidemocratic institutions. For example, in Kazakhstan you can take almost any first name. But, the change of second name (surname) is very difficult. As a rule, a Kazakh can assume only surnames of his parents, grandparents or the spouse. Bureaucrats are really a nuisance globally. They obstruct you in one way in Iceland and in other way they obstruct you in Kazakhstan.
