Theocracy makes it easy to tom social reforms, basically all the leader of the group has to say is "What would God want you to do?" Often inside a theocracy government, there are less religious problems. This is due to everyone believing in the same religion, so there is not as much conflict. This being said, it usually ends up being a follow or leave our community type attitude. It also can be conflicting because there is not one main leader, its more like a council. This could cause problems when trying to make decisions. Countries that follow theocracy type government include Saudi Arabia and Iran.

“Those who would renegotiate the boundaries between church and state must therefore answer a difficult question: why would we trade a system that has served us so well for one that has served others so poorly?”

Sandra Day O'Connor

“Indeed, it's futile to try and use Holy Scripture to support any political position. I deeply distrust anyone who does. Just look at what an Islamic Republic is like.”

Christopher Hitchens
