Liocracy was a Canadian television comedy series, which aired on The Comedy Network in 2001 and 2002.

The show, a spoof of biographical documentary series such as Biography or Life and Times, starred Leslie Nielsen as host Terrence Brynne McKennie. Each episode presented a Biography-type profile of a fictional person loosely based on a real-life celebrity.

The show was originally titled Liography, but was changed to Liocracy when the A&E Network, the producers of the original Biography series, threatened a copyright infringement lawsuit.
