A geniocracy is a governmental structure whereby power is given to those who have high average intelligence potential (IP) levels or are considered to be a "genius". A geniocracy is fundamentally the same as a democracy, except for the fact that people must qualify with a certain IP level (10% above average) in order to be allowed to vote and those being voted for have to have even higher IP levels (50% above average). Such a restricted suffrage contrasts with the so-called "universal suffrage" in that it does not discriminate among minors (those under the legal age), incarcerated felons or the mentally incapacitated. The Irish Seanad Éireann (upper house of the Irish Parliament) uses a limited Geniocracy as university graduates elect ten percent of the members.
Geniocracy is promoted by the Raelian Movement.
