Absolute Monarchy vs Dictatorship
The government of Saudi Arabia is classified as an Absolute Monarchy, where the monarch has an absolute monopoly on power. A Dictatorship on the other hand is a form of government where political authority is monopolized by a single person. See the difference?
According to The Economist, Saudi Arabia is as democratic a country as Myanmar (Military Dictatorship), and LESS democratic than Iran and Syria. Criticism or even perceived criticism of the government results in imprisonment and torture. As in, if I was in Saudi Arabia right now I could expect to disappear into a deep dark hole only seeing the light of day for my weekly public floggings just for hitting the "Submit" button after I finish typing this sentence.
You are not "spectacularly refined", sir. You are an ass.
