What is Politics?
A government is the set of
institutions and processes
that decide and implement
decisions on behalf of a
particular polity (a given
territory or people).

Let T and G be two graphs, and let us fix an order of the vertices of T
and of G. When convenient, we may identify vertices of T , resp. of G, with
