Wikipedia has an article on:

A theocracy is a government that is supposedly ruled by God or gods (by any name or title), but in actuality is controlled by religious leaders or institutions under religious laws. Usually, a religious book said to be the Word of God, such as the Bible or Koran is used as the primary source of law.
