* Katherine Kurtz's ''{{Deryni}}'' series features a number of Deryni royal families - in fact most royal families seem to have some Deryni blood. The Kingdom of Torenth is apparently a magocracy and the Muggle population doesn't seem to have a problem with it. On the other hand the Kingdom of Gwynedd is a ''former'' magocracy and the Muggles had a ''huge'' problem with it.

* The Empire of Ottovar in DavidWeber 's ''[[TheWarGods WarGod]]'' series. 10,000 years of peace and prosperity founded by the greatest Wizards of all time. The Elves are actually a by-product of their work,taking hereditary warlocks and changing how they use the magical field to give up magic. The Empire was ruled by the emperor as well as the Council of Ottovar who prevented the misuse of magic and researched. Of course part of the backstory of the series is those 10,000 years ended rather badly and there's exactly one wizard left who isn't evil. Suddenly having a Magocracy is a bit of a problem when there aren't any left...

* Marion Zimmer Bradley's ''{{Darkover}}'' may also qualify as a magocracy seeing as it's ruled by a caste of psi-gifted aristocrates who practice a sort of magitek in Towers.

* ''Literature/TheSilerianTrilogy'': The water lords essentially rule Sileria in part due to their control over its water supplies. Even the official rulers have to give them tribute or they'll cut it off. Once the Valdani leave, their goal is absolute rule of the island.
