Term to describe a military regime?

What is the term to describe a country or regime that is secretly run by the military, under the pretense of being a different type of regime? (Not necessarily a democracy- in my case it's an empire with a puppet emperor.) A [something]cracy term would be great, but I'm looking for anything really.

The only thing I can think of is 'military dictatorship', which doesn't really fit what I mean...

EDIT: Once again, you guys have been incredibly helpful. Thanks!
