  1. Minority rule gerrymander regimes — since the DARK AGE in the 1200s — formation of the English House of Commons — 700 plus years.

    P.R. — around since the 1840s — 1840s in *modern* regimes — about 170 years.

    BASIC P.R. — 3rd grade math with some algebra math

    PM = TM X PV / TV

    Solve for P and T adjectives and M and V nouns and get a Democracy Prize.

    Clue — PV / TV = the Proportional part of P.R.
