Organization of Government

In the 20th and 21st century, the term dictatorship has often stated that one person and sometimes his or her supporters has total control over everyone. Dictatorship can also mean that all the power is in one political party or in the military. In countries with dictatorships, the dictators usually decide everything unless they have people to help them. Dictators are the leaders of a dictatorship, and are usually the only people in the government.

Many dictators make the chain of command so that if they die, someone from their family will become ruler. This was the case with Fidel Castro and his brother Raul. This makes the government a fair bit like a monarchy, which is where the ruler of the land's role is inherited.
If Fidel Castro dies, his brother Raul (pictured) becomes dictator.

Also, the dictator can decide on whether he or she wants to hold elections. Hitler was elected by popular vote. After a dictator is elected though, he or she can ban all other political parties and future elections.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Many dictators that have control have unfair powers. These powers can make them happy, but make the rest of their people miserable. It is normal for a dictator to do this because he or she can't be stopped by anyone.
