Democracy is a form of government. In it, the act of governing is done either directly by the people of the nation, or by representatives elected by the people.
Of course, democracy covers a multitude of sins and who has the franchise and how much their vote counts for are all important.

- In a democracy when the PCs want to establish or overturn a specific law they don't just have to convince the local ruler, but also the population itself as well. This may make things more challenging, but also more fun - encourage the PCs to come up with speeches, publicity stunts, and media campaigns to convince the fickle public.
