Countries Ruled by a Presidential System

147.1k views52 items

The presidential system is popular, so this is a long list of countries, nations, and states governed or ruled by presidents, sorted alphabetically. In most cases, nations have multiple ruling bodies or government types, such as a presidential democracy, meaning they're not exclusively countries that are governed by presidential system. All types of presidential governments are represented here. This list of countries that use presidential systems as their form of government contains relevant information about each individual nation, including the national language, currency, and other civic facts of note. If you need to know the names of countries with presidential systems all around the world, then this is exactly where you need to be.

The list you're viewing has a variety of sovereign countries such as Indonesia and Turkmenistan. Even nations as geographically and politically different as Afghanistan and the United States of America are both technically presidential democracies.

With this list, you can finally answer the burning question, "Which countries are ruled by presidential system?" You're about to be properly edified if you've ever found yourself wondering, "Which countries are governed by a presidential system?"
