The institute of state civil service in Russia in the form in which it currently exists was formed during the «perestroika» of the Soviet bureaucratic regime in 1985-1991. The party and state apparatus in the USSR could not cope with the regulation of the economy of that time and the country as a whole, therefore reforms aimed at trying to get out of the crisis ultimately led to the disintegration of the Soviet Union to the formation of Russia and laid the constitutional foundations of the institute of public service as a mechanism for managing a new country .

Reforming the country as a whole had a liberal focus, the society wanted to organize the country in a new way, in accordance with new values. Reforming both Russia and the institution of public administration is generally accepted as a transition to democracy. However, over time, the principle of the work of the institute of public service did not justify the hopes placed on it. At present, it is obvious that the institute of public administration cannot cope with the government of the country and the need to reform it is obvious.

The declared liberal and democratic government today does not correspond to this. The selected research topic will help determine how authoritative a government service institution in Russia can be considered. A comparison with a foreign country such as the United States of America will help determine how high the level of authoritarianism is. The relevance of the topic of this work is due to the political absenteeism of Russian society as a whole, on the one hand, but at the same time, the heightened interest of the Russian scientific community to the issues of the effectiveness of governing the country, on the other.
