Unitary, Confederation, Federal Modern Governments of Africa Federal Unitary Confederation
Central government holds nearly all of the power.

Local governments such as state or county systems may have some power at certain times, but they are under the control of the central government. Essential Questions 1. How do the unitary, federal, and confederation forms of government distribute power?
