The Roman Republic was an ancient civilization that preceded the Roman Empire.
The government was made out of 300 members of the Senate. They elected 2 consul members who managed the senate who could veto laws. Sound familiar? Also during wartime they could elect a dictator who had absolute power.
The Republic fell because 1/3 of the population were slaves and the government was getting corrupt. Julius Caesar wanted to become Dictator for life, and the republic went downhill from there.
