Politics is the method by which groups make decisions. It is the solid allocation of values. Although the term is usually applied to performance within governments, politics is observed in all human group relations, as well as corporate, academic, and religious institutions.

In its most basic form, politics consists of "social affairs involving authority or power". In practice, the term refers to the rule and government of a nation-state and to the methods and plans used to formulate and apply government policy.

In a broader sense, any circumstances involving power, or any maneouvring in arrange to improve one's power or status within a group, may be described as politics. This form of politics "is most connected with a struggle for superiority among groups having different priorities and power relations”.
