Best Answer

Aristocracy is a form of government in which power is vested in a minority consisting of those believed to be the best qualified. (Webster's 17th ed) The more common use is that the aristocracy is the class of people who are wealthy and who own the land. In England, Parliament includes a House of Lords, which traditionally included wealthy men who had inherited titles of nobility.

Technically, no countries are run by aristocracy. Aristocracy is present in many forms around the world and generally consists of honorific titles and governance over areas of land.

There are also places like India, the UK and Sweden where aristocratic tradition persists but the country is ruled by democracy.

Is aristocracy and bureaucracy different?

In theory, they should not be different, but in practice they are. Aristocracy literally means 'rule of the best'; bureaucracy is a system where rule is done by appointed officials who generally are well-trained in their field (good training is also called 'merit'). In theory, aristocracy should be meritocracy (which means rule by those who are best qualified) as bureaucracy usually is, but in history, aristocracy is associated with rule of the nobility and privileged who earn their position not by ability but by birthright. In some countries too (i.e.) former communist countries) bureaucrats also exploited their positions to attain things they did not earn. But in general, yes, the two are different but they technically should not be.
