A score of 4 on the Government Sanctioned side of the Role Potential spectrum indicates that Government Sanctioned Role Potentials represent a commanding majority of potential power venues. While, some unlawful actors are capable of acquiring a role in these environments, these ventures are risky affairs. It is unlikely that unlawful non-state actors can maintain static influential roles in such socio-political environments and instead the small number of roles are occupied by smaller plethora of unorganized groups who are regularly deposed by law enforcement efforts.

-Government Sanctioned Role Potentials include participation in organized and regulated business and political systems, organized groups (religious, labor, activist), etc.
-Extra Government Role Potentials include violence, bribery, ideological persuasion, etc.
