Obviously it didn't work in that case and I don't think it would ever work. There is a reason that Abnegation and the factions ultimately lead to disaster, just like in the Hunger Games, and it's because that style of governing simply just won't work. And it never will.
Pros: the government being selfless means that theoretically they would do whatever it takes to make the people happy. They will not be corrupt (I repeat, theoretically).
Cons: Not all people are willing to accept the views and decisions of the Abnegation. It is not fair to only have representation from one of the factions; it would be better if each faction was represented in the government. It takes bravery, honesty, intelligence, and selflessness to run a successful, prosperous government. Areas where the Abnegation were weaker, other faction leaders could be stronger. If the Abnegation believed what they were doing was for the "good of the people," they might make bad decisions that lead their people astray unintentionally.
As you can see, the cons outweigh the pros, so I believe that having only Abnegation rule over all the factions was not a good decision.

I agree with gali. Having all factions in the government can lead to a better decision. You have all the views of all the factions so you can compare to find the best result. It may no be the best for the people, the smartest, the most honest, the kindest or even the most brave choice. However I think it will lead to an equal mixture of all these things. And that would please everyone. Though I can see why they have Abnegation as the government leader as other have said. They wouldn't do anything to further themselves because they are selfless. Therefore the government could never be corrupt. They would also do what is best for the people no matter what. Even if the government loses influence, money, or power.
