1. A democracy that is not a real democracy, but the illusion of one.
2. A political system with some aspects of democracy, but not a full-fledged one.

Examples of this are: totalitarian dictatorships that hold show trials and rigged elections, or countries like the United States that have aspects like the Electoral College as safeguards against a true democracy.
Many people feel America is a fauxmocracy because the electoral college has too much power.
Those elections have been rigged for the last 5 years. Talk about a fauxmocracy!
The people themselves can't vote on laws, thats such a fauxmocracy.
