Asked in Theocracy
Is theocracy limited or unlimited?
A theocracy can be either limited or unlimited, although it tends to be unlimited. A limited government is one in where there are internal checks and balances, making all people subject to the rule of law. In a theocracy like the modern-day Islamic Republic of Iran, the theocracy is limited since any of the Ayatollahs can be taken down by the others for insubordination. By contrast, the Ancient Egyptian Pharaonic State, which was also a theocracy, was an unlimited state since the Pharaoh had unchecked power.
