Definition (fractal government).  A fractal government is a system of small communities wherein every undiminished member belongs to the local parliament that is tied in a loose federation with other such communities in similar parliaments that are tied in loose federations to other parliaments of parliaments, etc., with similar structures at every level just as a fractal structure replicates itself in an infinite number of structures within structures, except that a loose federation of the world, convened to share resources according to the Fundamental Principle of Neighborliness, can have only a finite number of sub-levels as does every physical representation of a fractal in the real world. To avoid the rise of natural leaders in the sense of George Bernard Shaw (preface to The Millionairess), the representatives of lower-level parliaments in the parliament at the next higher level in the hierarchy of such parliaments are chosen quasi-randomly, somewhat as jurors are chosen, for limited terms that cannot be followed by other such appointments.  Recall is by direct vote of all members of the lower-level parliament.  Notice that the only permanent members of the government are the people themselves at the community (lowest) level who share political power in the sense of one-person-one-vote.  Naturally some people will have more influence than others if they are widely respected, for intelligence for example; but, they cannot convert this influence to greater wealth.

 

Example: There is one world. Suppose there are 200 nations/world, 46 states/nation, 46 eco-regions/state, 46 communities/eco-region, and 300 people/community. That would comprise a government of 200 463 300 people = 5.84 billion people, essentially all of the people in the world who are willing to serve. This is government of the people and by the people. Whether or not it is for the people depends upon the people.
