Characteristics of an Authoritarian Government?

Answer

An authoritarian government is one in which all of the power is held by a small political group. This type of government does not give the people that they govern any power over decisions that are made. Characteristics of an authoritarian government include a lack of respect for the law by those in power, the deprivation of freedoms to the governed populace, centralized power held by small bureaucracies, and tight control over the nation's military forces.
