13. Rule by fascists

 

most large corporation CEO's are intrinsically fascist. And with a potential autocrat soon to inhabit the WH, I have no doubts, now.

20. Corporatocracy

is the most accurate term for corporate rule.

Other possible terms:
Oligarchy- government controlled or ruled by a small and elite group of people.

Plutocracy- government controlled and ruled by the wealthy or a wealthy class
