How to use "Thearchy" in context?

Theocracy is a form of government in which a religious or spiritual group is the sovereign. In most cases, theocracy refers to autocratic rule by a religious figure or group. Theocracies can exist within any religious tradition, although the majority of them take place within the Abrahamic faiths.

Theocracy has been commonly perceived as a bad system of government. Critics argue that theocratic rule is based on religious dogma instead of on the principles of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. Furthermore, theocracies are often unstable, with leaders who may be oppressive or cruel.
