Zoocracy:  Placing Permanent Political Power—Yes, the Vote—in the Paws, Claws, and Jaws of Other Species

Zoocracy is a representative form of government in which members of all sentient species—not just homo sapiens—hold permanent political power of equal dignity.  Zoocracy is akin to democracy, in that decisions are made by vote of an enfranchised population.  But democracy pertains to an enfranchised population that is limited to humans, whereas zoocracy extends the franchise to all species.
