Oligarcy is few rich rulers tell his/her subjects to do what ever they want.
There are multiple countries that have a theocracy. One such country is Saudi Arabia and another is the country of Iran.

Direct Theocracy: A direct theocracy is a country that is directly ruled by either (1) a person who claims to be a god or (2) a person who claims to be able to determine the will of the gods. In this case, the religious authority is himself writing the laws of the country and enforcing them. A version of type one would be Ancient Egypt, where the Pharaoh was considered to be a god, and… Read More
In ancient times, the theocracy was run by priests and/or a single dictator. Today, the only country in the wordl that comes close to a theocracy is Iran, which has a supreme leader and a president.

its where a small group holds power
Israel was a theocracy from its founding until around 70 CE. After that time, the country ceased to exist as a Jewish populated and governed entity, until 1948. The modern government is a representative democracy, not a theocracy, and the country has no official state religion.
The definition of a "Theocracy" is a country which its rulers are divine and they rule in a divine manner. A perfect modern example of this are the Islamic Republic of Iran.
... Islam is a religion, not a country.

The name of a country led by religious leaders is called theocracy
Theocracy is a small group of religious people that rules the state or country; and Monarchy is where only 1 person rules, which is the king!
Where a person named theo rules everyone
A theocracy is a government that is run by the dominant religious group and where only one official religion is allowed. In a theocracy, the laws are made based on that religion, and the religious leaders are also the political leaders (or have strong influence over the political leaders). A good example of a theocracy is Iran. Some people also believe Saudi Arabia is a theocracy, and so is the Vatican City.
Iran is at least one country with a theocratic government.
Iran Saudi Arabia
its eather Oligarcy, unitary government, or federal government!
The only uncontroversial answer to that is the Vatican City, but some may not regard it as a "Country" Iran is a theocracy, as is Saudi Arabia. While both have titular heads of state nothing is done without consent and approval of the religious leaders. Until the Taliban was removed from office, Afghanistan too was a theocracy. -fundamentals! The UK is also technically a theocracy as Anglicanism is the official religion of the government and… Read More
A theocracy is a system of government in which priests rule in the name of God or a god. A disadvantage of theocracy is, it doesn't allow you to be open minded about other ideas or religions. Another disadvantage is that people of other religions would not feel as if they have a say in the laws or rules of the country.
I believe it is called Theocracy.
Iran became a theocracy in 1979.
Iran is a direct theocracy and Saudi Arabia is an indirect theocracy. Direct Theocracy: Iran is a direct theocracy because the Ayatollahs are all clergy of the Twelver Shiite Islam religion. Although Iran has an elected parliament, who can run in the elections (and often the results) are controlled by the non-elected Supreme Council of Ayatollahs. Indirect Theocracy: Saudi Arabia is considered an indirect theocracy, because it is actually absolute monarchy where the Saudi King… Read More
Vatican City which is a country in Italy but, Vatican City is completely separate from Italy.
NO. A theocracy is a country that is directly ruled by either (1) a person who claims to be a god or (2) a person who claims to be able to determine the will of the gods. In this case, the religious authority is himself writing the laws of the country and enforcing them. A secular country is one in which religion and the state remain entirely separate from one another and do not interfere… Read More
After the shah was dethroned in 1979, the country became a theocracy ruled by the Ayatollah Khomenei.
There isn't any. A theocracy is a country that is directly ruled by either (1) a person who claims to be a god or (2) a person who claims to be able to determine the will of the gods. In either case, it is exclusively the religious authority writing the laws of the country and enforcing them. As a result, the citizen has no role in determining what the law is.
One problem people have with a theocracy is that it can quickly become a dictatorship in the event that the monarch in charge of the country starts using censorship and propaganda to repel any other governing ideals and systems.
Understanding "theocracy" is very important since the majority of governments throughout history have been theocracies. Under theocratic governments, scientific progress, moral development, and industrialization are consistently halted and demonized. Avoiding such political systems by being able to recognize what makes a country a theocracy is critical to maintain the human endeavor.

They care more about an individual ruler then the overall stability both economically and socially of the country.

A country ruled by religious doctrines is called a theocracy.
There is no antonym for theocracy.
It depends on how you define successful. The government is certainly functional; theocracy has consistently shown that it works in the sense that the government retains power and does not collapse. It retains power by repressing and jailing its rivals. If you define successful as: improving the standard of living, appealing to the majority of Iranians, securing human rights, bringing technological development to the country, etc., the current theocracy is a failure.
a theocracy is a government ruled by or subject to religious authority
In a theocracy, the people are ruled by God. Sometimes in a theocracy, God's laws are interpreted by priests.
Disatvantages to a Theocracy
All governments govern the inhabitants of their country. the real question is How does a theocracy cover (What rules does it follow?) This would be answered as: A theocracy applies the rules of the religion held by thelafers to develop laws and regulations for the citizens and used these same sources as instructions for the court system.
