let me change your question a bit for you:

What on earth is "the Republic"?  

A Book by Plato. There you go.

small change, but made the answer considerably shorter and spared considerable effort in answering someone ...


thanks

But if by this way you somehow found the answer, glad to help you.

You received plenty of information here as a foundation to do your own homework.

I dont think so.
We non english speaking people often go thrg ref books and other media and we are well equipped with.

It's not my first language either,
and although your statement there might be true on myself, I know plenty on whom it is not. [/quote]

Many modern terms are from European history. Some of them are from Greek and Roman period.

Most of Chinese know Oriental history well.

For example, Chinese know confucious well, but know little about plato.

The terms "the republic", "round table", and so on are from European history.

Maybe you are non English speaking people. But probably you know well about the source and the meaning of those words.

What's "the republic"?

+++++++++++++

There are 2 political system to produce the highest leader of a country.

One type is monarchy governments. Kings and Emperors got their power from their parents, their grandparents, and so on.

Another type is "the Republic". The highest leaders are produced from democractic elections.

What on earth is the "Republic"?

First --- It means that China does not have an Emperor.

Second --- It means that China has a government that speaks and acts for the Chinese people.
