Look at Monarchy in Nepal. Forget about Magna carta: divine right in Nepal King is divine an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.
Just saw this outrageous piece of news in Neapl times:
Nepal is the most African country in Asia. Its palace increased its annual allowance six-fold from Rs 110 million to Rs 620 million this year, which comes to Rs 1,700,000 per day. That is $22,000 daily—not bad for a country whose poverty ranking is 142 out of 177 and where 82 percent of the people live on less than $2 a day. Nepal is certainly a long way away from socialism.
