According to this article, Demarchy is a form of statistical representative democracy which rely on collective intelligence:
Improving on the age-old model of sortition democracy, by which the citizens of Ancient Athens and Serenissima Venice flourished and prospered, the internet now facilitates an improved form of decentralised self-governance by adding collective intelligence to the mix. Citizens are no more impotent subjects to those in power. They make all decisions themselves, in a participative and deliberative process performed by a large number of parallel representative sociodemographic samples from their midst.
This is advertised as having numerous advantages, such as legitimacy, neutrality, rationality and inclusive.
Question: is there any region (at least several thousand persons) that considers or already uses Demarchy or something very similar?
