For fans of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, there is:

Vimes had once discussed the Ephebian idea of 'democracy' with Carrot, and
had been rather interested in the idea that everyone had a vote until he
found out that while he, Vimes, would have a vote, there was no way in the
rules that anyone could prevent Nobby Nobbs from having one as well. Vimes
could see the flaw there straight away.
