And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel.
-- Gen. 36:31 (KJV)
This verse goes into further detail about the government of Edom, which was a monarchy. When God chose Israel as His people, He reigned as King over them. God's idea of a perfect government is a theocracy; any other form of government created by man is destined to fail.
