I have experienced two governments, Greek & US. They both have the same 
goal as your terrocrats. (albeit with vastly different level of success :-))

When you find a place governed by people with a different mindset let 
me know; I believe it is impossible though (am I pessimist or what?) 
except if we are talking about the upper .005% of the population (feel 
free to define "upper" as you envision it). Example from the past: the 
Athenian citizens circa 5th century BC.
