5 MAIN PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT
One of the five purposes of government is to defend the borders of the nation against foreign invasion. Hence, all governments have some form of defense system that includes the army, the navy and the air force. Maintaining internal order is also one of the critical defense purposes of a government. This is taken care of by the internal police force.
Each nation has own unique way. Each nation has its own traditions and culture. It is said that for a nation to exist, it must have an identity. For instance, no two flags of any two nations are alike nor are the national anthems and pledges. Hence, one of the most important functions of a government is to protect and uphold the identity of its nation.
A government represents the interests of the nation. To protect and safeguard the interests of the nation, the government enters into bilateral trade agreements, negotiations, treaties and so on, with the governments of other nations.
One of the main purposes of the government is to provide good infrastructure to all its countrymen in the form of roads, bridges, drinking water, electricity and communication networks.
Last but not the least, introducing social welfare programs to protect and fulfill the interests of the minorities, such as to provide education and healthcare facilities to the underprivileged classes of the economy, is one of the primary purposes of the government.
