A form of government, or form of state governance, refers to the set of political institutions by which a government of a state is organized in order to exert its powers over a body politic. Synonyms include "regime type" and "system of government". This definition holds even if the government is unsuccessful in exerting its power.

Churches, corporations, clubs,radio, and other sub-national entities also have "government" forms, but in this article only the organization of states is discussed.
