REPUBLIC (_plural_ REPUBLICS) * A state where sovereignty rests with the people or their representatives, rather than with a monarch or emperor; a country with no monarchy. _The United States is a REPUBLIC; the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a constitutional monarchy._ * 1915, Emerson Hough, _The Purchase Price_, chapterI: “[…] We are engaged in a great work, a treatise on our river fortifications, perhaps ? But since when did army officers afford the luxury of amanuenses in this simple republic ? […] ” * (archaic) A state, which may or may not be a monarchy, in which the executive and legislative branches of government are separate. * 1795, Immanuel Kant, _Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Sketch_ Republicanism is the political principle of the separation of the executive power (the administration) from the legislative; despotism is that of the autonomous execution by the state of laws which it has itself decreed. […] Therefore, we can say: the smaller the personnel of the government (the smaller the number of rulers), the greater is their representation and the more nearly the constitution approaches to the possibility of republicanism; thus the constitution may be expected by gradual reform finally to raise itself to republicanism […]. None of the ancient so-called "REPUBLICS" knew this system, and they all finally and inevitably degenerated into despotism under the sovereignty of one, which is the most bearable of all forms of despotism. * One of the subdivisions constituting Russia. See oblast. _The REPUBLIC of Udmurtia is west of the Permian Oblast._ DERIVED TERMS * maritime republic * republican * republicanism TRANSLATIONS
