Trying to comprehend the US government can almost make your mind shut down. You need to understand how it stacks up to governments around the world (from democracy to dictatorship), how systems and laws change over time (years ago, women couldn’t vote!), and who holds the power today (how do big decisions get made?).

How can all these laws and ideas make more sense? Infographics! The charts, maps, and illustrations in this book tell a visual story to help you better understand key concepts about our country’s government.

Crack open this book to explore mind-boggling questions such as:

• Why was the first government created?
• How does a system of checks and balances work?
• Where does all that tax money go?

The answers will help make you a model citizen!
