Example of Theocracy?

Answer

Theocracy is a government that is operated by religious officials, who are guided by divine leaders. The word theocracy means to be ruled by God. It is taken from the Greek 'theo,' which means God and 'cracy,' which is government. An example of theocracy is the government in Iran. Another example is Saudi Arabia. These two countries are ruled by religious officials who believe the rules of the country come from divine intervention and are modern-day examples of theocracy.
