Mike,

The model looks fine, but I believe you will have hard time to publish
it if the objective is to make a publishable paper. I believe most
journals would require a panel data analysis

I also suggest to make a literature survey. As a start you can take a
look at the following paper:

Barro, Robert. 1999. “Determinants of Democracy”. Journal Of Political
Economy Vol 107 Issue 6. Part 2: Symposium on the Economic Analysis of
Social Behavior in honor of Gary Becker. P158-183.
