Annotation The article reveals the essence of civilized approach to the typology of, and the impact of sociocultural factors on the institutional and functional organization of the government. Substantiated is the thesis that the cultural level of the people, their historical traditions, religion views, national mentality, geographical living conditions and other sociocultural factors has a significant influence on the form of government, as well as the shape of the state as a whole. The author draws a conclusion that civilization correlates between any form of government, and that some features in the model of republic or monarchy cannot be adequately assessed without signs of a civilization. Therefore, the analysis of various forms of government must take into account not only the institutional and functional organization of the government, but also concrete historical and civilizational context within which the organization operates and develops. It is alleged that in the emerging global civilization is the formation of universal standards for the organization of the state, including those concerning the form of government.
