Who can explain North Korea? It was named by Kim Il Sun who was batpoo crazy. Not only that, but all those communist dictatorships have misleading, hyperbolic names.
But I'd ask you how, if I`m wrong, you would explain the dictionary?

Oh, and Madest: Don't fall for the conservative newspeak: democracies and republics don`t overlap, a republic is a form of democracy. That`s why not all democracies are republics, but all republics are democracies in the same way that though not all vegetables are carrots, all carrots are vegetables.

Altaru: Why do you put the words 'elected representatives` in quotes? Did you skip your civics classes as well as your English classes? The U.S., as the world`s third largest democracy, DOES have elected representatives. I know I`m too much of a dumbass for you to take my word for it, but you could look at our constitution (which has been amended 27 times, and as recently as twenty years ago) -- it does lay out the processes by which our democracy operates.
And no amount of quotes will make any of your claims correct.
