Its in Unseen Academicals and refers to Pseudopolis. Its a form of representitive democracy

'Oh, but I am challenged very frequently,' said Lord Vetinari. 'It's just that they don't win. Incidentally, gentlemen, I did notice in today's paper that the new voters of Pseudopolis yesterday voted not to have to pay taxes. When you see the president again, please don't hesitate to tell him that I will be more than happy to advise him when he feels it is necessary. Cheer up, gentlemen. Neither of you has got exactly what you want, but both of you have got exactly what you deserve. If the leopard can change his shorts, a wizard can change his hat. And the leopard must change his shorts, gentlemen, or we are all doomed.'


Its directed to the former Dean

Thanks pip! And thanks for the welcome Dave. Making Money was my first guess as well, but I didn't find it there.

Another one...

the political system of Ankh-Morpork is described as "One Man, One Vote," in which Vetinari alone is the Man, and he has the Vote.


Anyone know which novel this one is from?

www.abebooks.co.uk is your best bet. Be prepared to pay about £6,500 for a 1st edition :wink:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
