Key phrase: "Supreme power".
I know: your English is not so good, eh?
Let's see it again...
"a state or nation in which the supreme power is actually or nominally lodged in a monarch."
Key phrase: "supreme power is actually or nominally lodged in a monarch".
Here's the word you have been skipping over in the last fifty or so times I have posted the definition:
1. being such in name only; so-called; putative: a nominal treaty; the nominal head of the country. "
I think all the words have been defined, except maybe 'the' and maybe 'a' and 'an'.
So what it means is "supreme power" (of the government) resides ACTUALLY the monarch (let's say tyrant) OR nominally...
Do you need to study the word "nominally"?
Maybe it was the conjunction "OR"?
As far as the UK goes: the power vested in the monarch is *hardly* nominal and I have listed the powers many times only to have you NotBots roll around on the ground and kick your feet like five year olds.
Here's the thing: it doesn't matter if you get one thousand people to agree that you are all right and I am the only one here that insists that the UK (and Sweden) is a monarchy...
I'm right and you, my dears, are wrong.
