The sixth comment on this Bill Hobbs post includes the delightful misspelling "hippocracy". That would mean "rule by horses", as in Book IV of Gulliver's Travels. Then again, perhaps it's short for 'hippopotamocracy', "rule by hippopotami" ("river horses" in Greek), and refers to what are otherwise known as "fat cats".
