Autonomous Republic

An autonomous republic is a type of administrative division similar to a province or state.

Famous quotes containing the words republic and/or autonomous:

    I have always considered it as treason against the great republic of human nature, to make any man’s virtues the means of deceiving him.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Without free, self-respecting, and autonomous citizens there can be no free and independent nations. Without internal peace, that is, peace among citizens and between the citizens and the state, there can be no guarantee of external peace.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)
