This idea is already implemented in an extremely limited sense--peaceful countries. It's only natural to desire a fuller implementation, much as Corporate expounds. I don't think everyone would go to the same government type. The advantages of each government type are moderated by disadvantages. A country with faster attack rounds has higher military maintenance costs and/or lower corporation productivity. Without money, the war engine will fall apart.
I have no doubt there will be suicidal type players, but the way to deal with them is not by mimicking their government type, but by preparing with a countergovernment whose advantages downplay the advantages of the suicidal ones. There would probably be many people who would take a government somewhere in between those extremes. With preparation, anything is possible (with any government type).
