Kleptocracy is a form of government in which political power is vested in individuals who have amassed the most political and economic influence through any means. Literally meaning "rule by thieves", kleptocracies are oligarchic societies where the ruling class of kleptocrats exploits the general population in order to further their own agendas. These kleptocrats tend to back-stab each other regularly, creating a highly unstable political system revolving entirely around the quest to become a supreme ruler. Usually, leaders of a kleptocracy steal large amounts of public finances.

Kleptocratic micronations are a theoretical impossibility. Almost no one would willingly involve themselves in such an organisation, although a micronation based heavily upon competition for leadership is entirely possible.
