Stable with a chance of protests

For the most part, Mongolia is a safe and stable fledgling democracy. Now, in 2010, the Parliament is dominated by representatives from the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party (MPRP)- the former communist party, which enjoys widespread support from rural herders, and has controlled the country for most of the last 20 years. The President is from the Democratic Party and won the last election with an Obama-like "Let's change!" slogan. Although the government is in little danger of falling apart, its tendency to talk more than it acts (and it's tendency to act in favor of a few "oligarchs") occasionally leads to protest from the people, most of which end peacefully, but without much visible success.
