Just for argument sake; WHAT IS THE "SIMPLEST government?"

Just for argument sake; WHAT IS THE "SIMPLEST government" you can form?

Can you formulate the most basic and simple scenario in which such a "government" could possibly form?

A. So at least 2 people agree and form a contract.

^So does the "contract" count as "a governing entity" that enforces certain actions upon the participants?

B. At least 2 people agree and form a contract, and appoint one of the 2 people to be "the enforcer" of the contract upon these 2 individuals.

^This doesn't seems like it would work very well haha.

C. At least 2 people agree and form a contract, and appoint A THIRD person as "the enforcer" of the contract upon these 2 individuals.

^So would this "third person" count as a government?

What are the minimum requirements or criteria to qualify as "a government?"
