So you select your leader by worship.

Look up constitutional monarchy and then you will not ask foolish questions.

 

Do you not learn the different types of government when you are in school?

So your head of state is born to the position in another part of the world.  Your governor general is approved by a monarch from another land.  Your prime minister is chosen by the governor general.   What does the queen even let you vassals vote on?

You mean the type where your leader is selected for you before you are born. And paid because of their breeding.

Hard to believe in this enlightened age that there are still people in the world who are ruled by monarchs.     It floors me when a person who willingly lives under such a system says anything derogatory about supremacist.   A monarchist system is supremacist by definition.

Does appear that their system is working quite a lot better for them than say Russia's is for non-oligarchs.

Perhaps arguably more than the US although only by a slight margin. That's if you use the standard of where people are more likely to achieve the American Dream of upward mobility.

Certainly, did someone say Russia had a better system?  People in Canada are also far better off than those in China, especially those in "education" camps.  

I can tell you from having spent some time in Canada the people there aren't uniformly thrilled with their government.
