A form of government which cuts the middleman in politics the way Kickstarter does in publishing, wherein instead of voting for a politician, the voters receive a certain amount of "voting money" which they can spend on various policies trying to get them "funded". The result is a custom politician - a political platform consisting of the sum of voter preferences.

Can be turned into a meritocracy if in addition to a fixed amount of "voting money" all voters receive, bonus "voting money" can be earned by, say, completing quizzes which test political awareness.
Kickstartocracy is the best form of government among those that haven't been tried.
