They would have to govern "from the shadows" to avoid being manipulated or the like. Of course, there's no guarantee that all the members wouldn't get themselves set up for kickbacks.
Obviously, the difficult part is people's dislike of any kind of government secrecy, and starting such a system in an established democracy.
Edit: I think the member of OH should start up our own PMC, conquer part of Australia/Asia and start our own country. Or use our vast sums of PMC money to conquer the moon.
Yeah, I think oligarchies are probably my favorite ones too. It has it's flaws, but so does everything else. Meh. And FUCK YEAH! fantastic idea @ edit.

like a fatass at work (he's kinda tall but fat )he's like 300 pounds or so and his like 20 or something like that... the doctor suggested him gastric bypass (the same doctor wus gonna perform the surgery) now this guy doesnt exercise at all and i dont think he tries any diets... he is perfectly healty(meaning no high blood pressure/cholesterol/no diabetes) So instead of suggesting him to exercise idk maybe give him some prescription drugs, to enhance his metabolism or for him to lose appetite... he tells him to go for surgery. cuz he has good insurance abviously..
Like Mal said, any system is prone to corruption.
And wut? Think about that for a second. You really think some fatass went to the doctor and asked "Hey, how should I go about dieting and exercising to lose this weight?" Or do you think he asked something like "What's the fastest/easiest way for me to lose weight?" Think hard. = /
And gastric bypass is probably the most reliable way for a dumbshit lazy fat fuck to lose weight (Which is exactly what that guy probably is. A healthy guy wouldn't go to a bariatric surgeon for weight loss advice. He'd go to a family doctor if he's kinda stupid, or a nutritionist/personal trainer or something). So it's not like the doctor was even giving out complete shit advice for his own personal gain there anyway. I know what you were trying to say, but it's just a horrible example on your part.
