Theocracy is a type of government in which a religious leader rules the country in the name of God.

2 Pros of Theocracy-                                                                                                             They are able to solve problems a lot easier because they have to abide by a set of rules.                                                                                                                                      They are also able to get along better because they all believe in the same things, have the same values and follow the same religion.                         

2 Cons of Theocracy -                                                                                                             If a person living in that country somehow does not follow the same religion, they could be discriminated against a lot.                                                                                               The people there might not be as innovative or not be able to do certain things, because of their religious leader/religion/God/ would tell them not to.

Theocracy quotes

"We do not want to live in a theocracy. We should maintain that barrier and government has no business telling someone what they ought to believe or how they should conduct their private lives." -Robert Reich

“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

2 countries that use this form of government are Iran, Vatican City.
