What do Canada, Northern Ireland, Mexico and Sweden have in common?

Good question you say.

Well, it turns out that they are the only self-governing nations or regions to have a single party run the government for more than half of the twentieth century.   Both Sweden and Canada had changes in government during the century.  Unionists, however, ruled in Stormont from its inception in 1921 until it was prorogued in 1972−almost 51 years.  Only Mexico, with the PRI or Partido Revolucionario Institucional, has had a government longer than the Ulster Unionist Party.  PRI (or the other names by which it was known) ruled Mexico, continuously, for more than seventy years.
