To start with it will have a membership of one, me, and be known as the, 'Autocratic Despot for the benefit of Everyone' party.
Such a party may not be democratic, but democracy - in its present form - does not work very well in any case: just look at who gets elected.
Qualifications? Well, I have a Master's in mathematics, an MBA, and have run profitable businesses all my life, employing those with a will to succeed and to be rewarded for their own efforts - no backsliders, no false hopers, no waffle merchants, no timewasters, no excuses - just get it done, and let them howl (to quote Mr Jowett of Balliol). Very cost-effective.
No salary required, no expenses required: I make enough from my businesses, to keep me in new sprockets.
Similarly able despots are invited to join me.
Personally, and I don't really mean to decry your wry humour, I would prefer a Govt with less criminal "bribe-ability" and more straightforward honesty.
I know it's a big ask, but hey I was always a dreamer of a better world - on many levels.
!!You can't bribe me!! (but oo, wait a moment, is that a Mars bar ......................)
