This qualitative case study aims to describe a society-based government as a manifestation of political communication and democracy at Muna District, Southeast Sulawesi Province. The aim is to achieve good governance which is a manifestation of political communication. It is a process where government and society must continue interacting to create a society- oriented government. The society-based government as a manifestation of democracy has been carried out but it does not include all regions in Muna district. This is due to several factors, namely; (1) Inadequate land and sea transportation facilities due to the government's transportation policy; (2) economic inequality; (3) insufficient job opportunities; and (4) education. The study concludes Muna district embodies democratic principles of governance based on populist principles (from the people, by the people, and for the people).
