251.7k views90 items

It's tough to keep track of all the different systems of government, so this is a list of countries, nations, and states governed or ruled by a republic. Some nations may have multiple ruling bodies or government types, meaning they're not exclusively countries that are governed by republic, but every entry here is built at least partially on a Republican model. This list of countries that use the republic as their form of government also boasts other facts about each nation, including the official language and currency in each republican country today. There are many, many countries with republic governments in the world, and now you can keep track of them all.

Examples of sovereign states on this list include Colombia and the Marshall Islands, as well as Mozambique and the United States of America. These Republican countries may be different in countless respects, but all incorporate republican representation in their civic structures. This list answers the question, "Which countries are ruled by republic?" It's the perfect resource if you've been wondering, "Which countries are governed by republic?"
