: : No reference I've yet seen categorizes them as such but rather as Democratic Republic, Republic, Social Republic, etc. I've yet to see a country listed as a 'capitalist' country.
: : Thoughts?

: You can live in a household which can be characterized as both Republican and Rastafarian, so why not characterize a country both by its political system (Democratic Republic) and economic system (Capitalist)?

OK, except that when something good happens, people who live in a Republican/Rastafarian household will both want credit, and when something terrible happens both Republicans will point to the Rastafarians (rightfully so...) and the Rastafarians will point to the Republicans (you know how Rastafarians are...).
So is it a political system that should characterize a country or it economic system?
