noun: Rule by the wealthy.
From Greek chryso- (gold) + -cracy (rule). Earliest documented use: 1828. A synonym is plutocracy.
“[The] television show ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ is a ritzy, glitzy, ironyfree chronicle of the nouveau riche. The programme, aired on the US cable channel E!, is avidly watched in this country. In some respects it is a salutary demonstration of how the British aristocracy have been well and truly supplanted by the international chrysocracy.”
