Theocracy- a system of goverment in which high priests rule in the name of god or a god.

the concept of theocracy came from a jewish historian named Flavius Josephus. Iran, Saudi Arabia, united Arab Emirates, Pakistan, and Mauritania are islamic theocries. Vatican City is the only christian theocracy.

Pros: Most likely a one party state, so bills are easily passed and imposed without checks and balances of the Legislative Branch.

Very strict disciplinary policy.

And a really organized effective goverment.

Cons: very conservitive and limited changes.

Tends to be very radical.

And the uses the name of god to condem something.
