anarchy, the idea behind it is that NO one can rule others. that no one has right sabout somebody else. doing a crime would already be against the anarchy-system so it is impossible to get it trough. mybe combined with a good technocracy, where robots are serving us so that no one has to work and no one has to do stuff to et whathe want anarchy will be possible....

None of the above. No form of government can be ideal. But democracy is surely the best of the bunch. Communism would be nice, in an ideal world. But on a large scale just cannot work. Anarchy, by definition, cannot be one of the options since it is not civilized. Anarchy is a myth anyway. It can't really exist for long. In any group of people there will always emerge a leader.

After thinking for a second, all forms listed above (except anarchy)could work well, in ideal conditions. But real life is rarely ideal.

Boobies are rarely ideal.

Too small, too saggy, dinner-plate nipples, etc.

Dictatorship until my civ gets big, then communism. Damn, where did that copy go?

Rebublics and democracies do moderately well given most circumstances. They usually end up with the will of the people, which is usually what counts. A down-side is the red-tape it produces.

A dictatorship or monarchy (very close) can do extremely well or poorly, depending on the person in charge. What is needed is a strong personality that works towards the good of the people. A dictatorship always has a strong personality, though usually working for it's own ends. A monarchy tends to work towards its own ends, though not always, and usually has a series of terrible monarchs punctuated by brilliant ones. (Read Machiavelli's "The Prince", it tells you all sorts of useful things. He also wrote somethign from the standpoint of a republic, the name name eludes me)
