What are the opposite words for representative governments?

The antonyms for the term "representative governments" include an authoritarian regime, an absolute monarchy, a dictatorship, a totalitarian government, or a one-party state. Representative government refers to a system where representatives are elected to make decisions for the people, and the power is distributed among them. In contrast, authoritarian regimes, monarchies, and dictatorships are characterized by a single ruler or a small group of people holding all the power and decisions are made solely by them. Totalitarian governments and one-party states are similar to dictatorships but place a greater emphasis on control over citizens' lives and suppress any opposition. These alternative forms of government often lead to a lack of individual freedoms and rights for citizens.
