USA is NOT the world’s oldest democracy. That honor lies with England.

Be sure to give us all a ping the next time the subjects of the United Kingdom get to nominate and elect their next head of state!

The Queen may be the head of state, but she does not run the Government. Republics such as Israel, following the Parliamentary system often appoint their presidents rather than elect them, but nobody would suggest that they are not representative democracies...
