* The Hominum Empire in ''Literature/TheSummonerTrilogy'' is this in all but name; in its foundation, battlemages were the leaders of the armies, and were rewarded for their service by being granted nobility and various court positions. Nowadays all royalty and nobility in the empire have a magical bloodline, which [[RoyalInbreeding they make strict efforts to keep among their families so as to not lose their positions over the commoners]], and the only way to advance up the social ladder is by having magical talent.

* ''Literature/TheElminsterSeries'': Elminister's native country becomes one after his uncle hires a number of mages to secure the throne, who then take over with him being essentially a puppet monarch. Another country was also taken over by a [[EvilSorcerer cruel]] [[TheArchmage archmage]]. He's known as "[[TheCaligula the Mad Mage]]" because torturing people is his pastime. Elminster tries to defeat him, but almost gets killed and has to be rescued by Mystra. Later he overthrows the mage lords of his country with her help. Finally one of Elminster's friends is an ambiguous version: she's a very powerful mage and also queen of her country. Though not evil, she's feared by her subjects due to being reckless and unstable.

Can be good, bad, or indifferent. Sometimes overlaps with WitchSpecies; if everyone can cast spells, the Magocracy is usually depicted as good or indifferent. If the wizards rule over a population of {{Muggles}}, on the other hand, they are more likely to be evil. A Magocracy can also overlap with a MagicalSociety, although it's quite possible to have a Magocracy which is more loosely organised than that. If ReligionIsMagic, it may overlap with TheTheocracy. The most sinister versions will have the society consist of [[OurLichesAreDifferent undead wizards]] and double as TheNecrocracy.
