* The Shapers of the ''{{Geneforge}}'' series. They pretty much rule the world with an iron fist; they come down very hard on anyone who tries to learn Shaping (using [[{{Mana}} essence]] to create and alter new forms of life) without their permission, or any beings created by Shaping that are less than fully subservient. Even "conventional" mages generally find their studies hampered by the Shapers and their restrictions on magic. Unsurprisingly, more than a few Muggles and intelligent creations have TurnedAgainstTheirMasters.

* Outright defied in the backstory of ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10090792/1/Zero-no-Tsukaima-Saito-the-Onmyoji Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji]]''. Abe no Seimei forbade [[UsefulNotes/{{Onmyodo}} Onmyoji]] from holding noble titles or political office, and moreover, from using their magic to influence affairs of state.

* Inverted in ''{{Warbreaker}}''--while most people in power in Hallandren are also skilled Awakeners, this is because they have used their wealth to buy the [[{{Mana}} Breath]] needed to fuel the magic. In other words, the magic is like a fancy car or house in our world--not a source of influence, but a definite sign of it. Of course, ultimate power in Hallandren lies in [[PhysicalGod the Court of Gods]], who are mostly figureheads, and their priests (though said priests are often powerful Awakeners themselves).

** Widespread in the TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms: [[http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Netheril Netheril]] was full of {{Magitek}}, inhumanly arrogant, but mostly non-evil (if not ''good'') Archwizards with magical longevity ruled over Muggles -- until their abuses of magic provoked turning the entire region into a barren desert and rose to stealing the power from goddess of magic, [[GotterDammerung killing her, them and damaging the world's magic circuit]]. Thay and Luskan are evil magocracies (Thay got better later when pro-trade attitude won). [[http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Sshamath Sshamath]] is a city-state [[AffablyEvil as nice as possible for evil drow]]. The kingdom of Halruaa in the southern Realms ''is'' a good Magocracy, where all citizens benefit from wizardry and {{Magitek}}, happy people celebrates holy days, law protects, and... NightmareFuel quietly gurgles behind the scene.
