Word of the Day 10/14/15 Timocracy

Timocracy (noun)
timocracy [tahy-mok-ruh-see]


noun, plural timocracies.
1. a form of government in which love of honor is the dominant motive of the rulers.
2. a form of government in which a certain amount of property is requisite as a qualification for office.

Origin: 1580-90; earlier timocratie (< F) < Greek tīmokratía, equivalent to tīmo- (combining form of tīmḗ honor, worth) + -kratia -cracy

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

This cracked me up... one of my bosses (the one I mostly work under) is named Tim. So I work in a Tim-ocracy. :D
