Top definition
A type of government in which corruption is widespread. The corruption is so strong that society accepts it as a part of normality, reacting with suspicion when some public worker or politician doesn't embezzle something.
Gosh, that mayor actually used the city's money to build stuff for the city. Something's not right here. That's a disrespect to our cleptocracy!

dafuq just happened, those people were convicted for corruption? Is that a crime, really?! That's absurd, i thought we were living in a cleptocracy here!
