Eventually chiefdoms grow into modern polities, various kind of monarchies, despotisms, democracies, and the modern polity designation codes. A key developmental structure of modern politics is the city-state, an urbanized area and its associated dependent areas.

Earlier societies can only marvel at the productive largess of industrial societies, often forming cargo cults. Successful city-states form successful economies of scale, greatly increasing productivity.
