    I don't live in nor am from a nation where a monarch still exists in some form. I only understand that most of the rulers seem to be purely ceremonial. But again, that's just from my outside standpoint and only knowing bits of info.

    So what exactly do they do? Are they that vital in affairs besides standing around while looking and feeling pretty out of tradition? This is more towards the Commonwealth guys since the Queen seems to be a pretty big deal.

    They help to maintain stability. Reading all those royalty gossip mags keep people dumb. Sales went down, riots went up.
    Anyways, they're as useless as any ruler. I advocate anarchy, but only for those intelligent enough.

    Didn't the monarchs use to marry with their own bloodline? That's gotta be horrible they're in the bottom of the human gene pool, waste tax money but still don't do jackshit they're like a long term contestant in a reality TV here in America.

    But does it do anything for the economy unintentionally? Say, boosting tourism? Eh, the hype of for instance, the week of the royal wedding where people just flocked to travel there dumbfound. (though at the same time I heard citizens had work off?)

    Even if tourism generates fifty percent more revenue than what goes into the royal family (let's ignore that the money of tourists goes into the pockets of private citizens while the salary of the royal family is generated by the government) tourists are generally annoying and cause problems. Which naturally raises overall maintenance. Having poor tourists flood your nation isn't beneficial, unless you're some third world nation with only a handful of citizens.
