The kind of government we have in the USA is immaterial.

I understand: it is in the natural of the NotBot to move the goalposts when cornered.

The Kingdom of Sweden is a monarchy. It comes with being a monarchy and Sweden identifies ITSELF as a monarchy.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet.

PS: I could start a political party tomorrow if I were so inclined. I could do it today if I were not throwing mud on the ceiling and finishing the trim. The USA has never had a dictator- outside of the rhetoric tossed by party fanatics. the USA- and this is a key difference between USA and Sweden- does not have and has never ever had a king.

The Kingdom of Sweden is a monarchy. If you are uncomfortable with this FACT, you have to change your government.

Don't try to change the English language.

There is another difference between the US and Sweden.
Their system of government is more democratic than ours.

It isn't.

We can start with the recognition of the FACT that the KINGDOM of Sweden is- and here is the part you can't seem to get- is a monarchy, not a democracy.

What you are discrediting and not accounting is that most Monarchies that still exist do so in facade only and have constitutions that replaced any previous arraignments as well as elections to positions of government.

PS: Maybe you should read the first line after your list:

"There is no consensus on how to measure democracy, definitions of democracy are contested and there is an ongoing lively debate on the subject".

Shall I post the definition for "moot" for you, Booby?

Sweden is a parliamentary democracy, which means that all public power proceeds from the people. At the national level, the people are represented by the Riksdag (Swedish parliament) which has legislative power. The Government implements the Riksdag's decisions and draws up proposals for new laws or law amendments.
