Wacky Word Wednesday: Kleptocracy

I suppose thievery is the key
to being called a kleptocracy.

I'm starting a new weekly tradition here at Rhyme Me a Smile
because I like to learn new words every once in a while.
Visit each Wednesday to learn a new wacky word in rhyme
and feel free to suggest words for me to rhyme some future time!
