All of these "Government VS" threads can usually be summed up fairly quickly (IMO)... every government is grand in theory, but all goes to shit when you add people to it. Every government has worked for a time, and failed in time. What was the catalyst behind both their success and failures? People.

I hate to say it, but the best government would be a Beneficial Tyranny. One guy makes the rules and everyone follows them, no exceptions. Give him an army of robots or something. Greatest chance of success, to bad no one would go for it, hence the Tyranny part of it. There are many examples of this in history, and while devestating, changed the course of history forever while making dramatic advancements in various fields.
