Nagarjuna described an excellent ruler as one who could/should: 

Speak the truth, and speak gently to beings.

Be pleasant, unassailable and skilled in public

policy; do not wish to humiliate others;

be independent, and always speak well.

 

With enmity subdued, be generous,

dignified, and mentally peaceful. Do not

procrastinate, and do not be rash;

do not be dishonest, and be courteous.
