    Well at the start of ww2 spain, poland, italy, germany, china and russia were all republics so how you say they were not even close to being a republic escapes me. Popst ww2 bith italy and germany had proportional representation forced on them as a voting system because it prevents a party with limited support gaining a disproportionate number of seats. Something to think about when you look at the UK elctgion results and i suspect america as well though I don't know enough to make a case for the latter.

    Calling a nation a republic, like calling it Democratic, or Socialist, does not make it so.
    Republic - a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.
