Dictatorship

 

Is a type of authoritarianism in which a country is ruled by one person (or political entity) that regulates nearly every aspect of the public and private behavior of normal people. Dictators, like totalitarian governments, generally employ political propaganda to decrease the influence of any alternate governing systems. 

Examples of Dictatorships: Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany, Benito Mussolini’s Italy, Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union, Mobutu Sese Seko in Zaire from 1965-1997.
