The form of government of the monarchy.
This continuity, this consistency in the most important point, which first welds a community together, common identity, a feeling of togetherness and national symbols, as well as connecting traditions make these monarchical states so extremely successful. The monarchy guaranteed and guaranteed the permanent existence of those states. In the history of Great Britain, Sweden, Holland or Belgium there was no "zero hour", no "point of no return", no fateful break and turning point that washed away the monarchy overnight and with it the land of total irresponsibility and the beast of nationalism would have left. In those countries, in the hour of need, people remembered the strongest symbol of the fatherland: the monarch.
This unbroken, permanent, crisis-proof "state" of a nation is partly responsible for its economic and social success. A "condition" that seems all the more important for the multilingual Danube region. On the other hand, the 20th century has proven beyond measure that the republics are quickly drowned in wars, fascism or communism or that they themselves do so.
Today's republics, in turn, are drowning in corruption, mismanagement, exploitation, intolerance, rampant commerce and increasing moral neglect. Things that are gradually nowhere near as advanced in monarchies as in republics. In the above international rankings, today's Austria is by no means bad. What increase would be possible if our country were a parliamentary monarchy!
