Democracy on Teppala
Democracy on planet Teppala refers to any of many systems of government in which the people are given the power to choose their leaders, rather than the leaders internally promoting each other. This democracy takes many forms, but all such examples have many things in common.
The oldest political system on planet Teppala that could be described as democratic is that of Nama. However, there is no voting; people simply convert from one party to another, and the larger parties hold sway over the smaller parties by virtue of their members' economic and military power. Thus, people have the freedom to follow the leaders they choose without fear of intervention by Nama, but numbers are not enough since some parties may be more advantageously positioned to make trade agreements than others.
Nama referred to its government as a dissenter union rather than a democracy.
