No, these aren't those annoying problems that math teachers like to give in middle school. These puzzles are based around words and language use.
Take a 4-letter name of an African country, a 4-letter word meaning "grand" and a 4-letter word meaning "young kids". Alternate using the first letters of the above in order, then the second letters of each in order, then the third and finally the fourth, so the sequence is CGKCGKCGKCGK, for Country, Grand and Kids. The letters of each word are taken in order.

The full word means an abstract discussion of governance. What is it?
