Definition: an oligarchy is when a small group of people rule over a place

Pros- 1) They have multiple people to help make decisions 2) Different people in the group are in charge over certain things such as the army and farms so one person doesn't have more responsibility than another

Cons- 1) You have to take into consideration of the different people ruling groups that you have no control over 2) The people don't have much say in this form of government
