A government is whoever has control of violence. When a warlord takes power, that is the government. Multiple factions competing for that seat is the "state of nature" talked about in Hobbes' Leviathan (book that created modern democracy).

Ancient countries nothing I’m interested in. Failed states after uprising that destabilize the government & overthrow them. at least it’s a recent events we can discuss, not some poorly documented & exaggerated stories from history books.
