That doesn't make it a theocracy.

My own experience of Iran, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Kuwait - 25 years ago or more, and thus perhaps irrelevant - is that 'theocracy' was equivalent in cultural importance to 'Conservatism' or 'Socialism'. I.e. it was not how most people in those countries conducted their lives.
