List of forms of government
Government of any kind currently affects every human activity in many important ways. For this reason, political scientists generally argue that government should not be studied by itself; but should be studied along with anthropology, economics, history, philosophy, science, and sociology. Political science Etymology From Middle English government,[citation needed] from Old French government[citation needed] (French gouvernement), from Latin gubernatio ("management, government"). Government is a compound formed from the Ancient Greek κυβερνάω (kubernaō, "I steer, drive, guide, pilot") and the Latin -mente, ablative singular of mēns ("mind"). Classifying government In political science, it has long been a goal to create a typology or taxonomy of polities, as typologies of political systems are not obvious.[6] It is especially important in the political science fields of comparative politics and international relations.

Water Geography | Let Me Explain To You A Thing Template for Creating and Building a New Fantasy Race for your Fictional World In fantasy world building and writing, the term "race" is loosely used to describe a sentient or sapient life form with a similar degree of intelligence and awareness as that of a human. Generally a new race will have shared traits and will be aware of its self and its environment. The way your race interacts with its environment will influence the local ecosystems and they will use the world's resources to better their standard of living and interact together in a social capacity. Creating an entirely new fantasy race can be a daunting task for a fantasy world builder or writer. Having a good design template to begin drafting the various characteristics of your race is important for shaping a well rounded creation. Even if your race is not completely unique to your world, you can use this template to record the characteristics for all your races on your fantasy world. Race Name(s)At the top of your race design template you should include the name of your race.

courbe comparative de la croissance de la population de l'europe et de la population mondiale de l'Antiquité à 1900 Sample World-Building Questions, By Request I’ve had some requests to share my world-building questions from that 100+ page master list I have. Obviously, I won’t be posting them all. A good number of them are common sense questions. So I’m just going to pick some samples from a few categories to help people get an idea of some of the directions they could be going. I have mentioned before that the best way to do this for yourself is to pick out a really good, comprehensive history book and sit down with a pad and paper and turn each paragraph (or so) into a question. Again, I would remind fellow urban fantasy writers that, even if we are working with the modern world, we need to provide complex and believable cultures for the supernatural beings we are introducing. And again I must give credit to Patricia C. Okay, on to some sample questions: How many people are there in this country? Is population shifting from rural to urban, south to north, mountains to coast, etc.? What is the infant mortality rate for this culture/region?
