Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

The world governmental system is Anarchy. It's a live-and-let-live sort of situation where Sovereignty is maintained through agreements and/or force.

The US governmental system is a Republic not a democracy. The people, limited in numbers by various "who can vote" schemes, choose a select elite who are entitled to vote on who becomes president.
