Sophosacrhy (rule by the wise) is an form of limited democracy that views voting as one of the highest and most vital responsibilities. As such, those that do not wish to take the responsibility serious, do not vote. The belief is that by removing the uneducated voters and the single issue voters, politicians will be held to greater responsibility and less forgiving of corruption, lies, and manipulation. The belief also holds that this allows the non-voters to focus more on their individual lives under the belief that that is what they truly want anyway (otherwise, they would educate themselves).

While Sophosarchy would be considered an anti-democratic system by most western cultures, it sees itself as a branch of democracy. While Sophosarchias may gravitate towards statism or totalitarians, the limited democracy belief is not exclusive to any area of the political spectrum (other than anarchy and total dictatorship).
