People subscribe to various ideologies and not all of them are represented in the government. Another problem is that the opinions of individuals are not somehow measurable and often don't fit into any classical ideological terms.
This map therefore shows the official state ideology. For democracies, this often is (classical!) liberalism (as in, freedom of speech and other ideas of classical liberalism are guaranteed in the constitution) or other moderate ideologies (conservatism, social democracy).
|Islamism||Islamic republics, other radical Muslim regimes|
|Traditionalism||Absolute monarchies, non-Muslim theocracies (Vatican City)|
|Third Position||Authoritarian* regime combining right-wing and left-wing ideology (e.g. Baathism, Juche, historically Fascism and National Socialism)|
|Communism||Officially Marxist/Communist one-party states|
|Socialism||Left-wing authoritarian* regime with Marxist/socialist ideology, but not officially communist states|
|Centrism (authoritarian)||Authoritarian*, but either moderate or non-ideological government|
|Centrism (democratic)||Non-authoritarian* (i.e. democratic or hybrid) states without high degree of freedom**|
