    Noocracy ('Rule of the Wise') also called Epistocracy ('Rule of the Knowledgeable')[1][2] is a system of government within which authority is delegated to people based on their knowledge, those people traditionally being philosophers. The concept has its origins in Ancient Greek philosophy and the concept of 'The Philosopher Monarch.png King'. A notable example of a noocracy was the Caesar.png Roman Empire during the reign of Marcus Aurelius, who contributed to the philosophy of Stoicism.


    The first attempt to implement Noocracy was Pythagoras' city of the wise which he planned to build in Italy together with his followers. Another example of Noocracy is philosopher kings, examples of philosopher kings are Dion of Syracuse, Marcus Aurelius, Khosrow I, and Matthias Corvinus.


    Noocracy believes in a system of governance where decision-making is in the hands of philosophers, these philosophers could be philosopher kings. Philosopher kings are rulers who possess both a love of wisdom, as well as intelligence, reliability, and a willingness to live a simple life. Noocracy also criticizes democracy for the irrationality of voters and that the average voter doesn't have the necessary knowledge to decide on means to achieve their political aims.
