Democracy in action

Thieves on Chloris cast votes. (TV: The Creature from the Pit)

Democracy was a form of government in which all citizens had an equal say in the decisions that affected their lives.

A group of thieves on Chloris acted as a democracy, casting a vote to decide Romana II's fate. Despite a majority voting to kill her, she convinced them otherwise. Even though they were governed in this way, Torvin acted as the group's unofficial leader. (TV: The Creature from the Pit)

The Rulers of the Universe, who specialised in manipulating other planets, called democracy, the idea of self-determination one of the greatest con tricks ever. (AUDIO: I Went to a Marvellous Party)

Democracy ended in the United Kingdom in 2268. (AUDIO: Antidote to Oblivion)
