I'm sure the former kings and queens of the Soviet Union would like to have a word with you about different political systems.
As I recall...the kings and queens were routed out by the White Revolution. The Reds--the Soviets--then had a revolution of their own and routed out the "Ferengi".

So...I'm not sure what your point is, madam.

The Borg Queen would be comparable to the General Secretary/Comrade Premier. Lenin, Stalin, you get the idea.
