Flag of The Republic
The Republic is a group on 2b2t that has existed since December of 2017. It was founded by Bartolome_Mitre to house Spanish speaking players escaping spawn as part of ElRichMC's 'Spanish Invasion.' Mitre would be the last original member, who is still playing. The group remaining, it still has approximately 20 members and is currently an active group. The group was founded with the intention not to PvP at Spawn, but instead to build bases.
The first base built by The Republic was called "The Capital" or "La Capital". It existed from 2017 until early 2018. A second base, Buenos Aires, was founded in 2018 and lasted until mid 2018. Another 2018 base, "Versalles," lasted almost until 2019. A base called 'Eagle's Nest" was founded in 2019. Later, "Santa Teresa Outpost" was built in 2019, and "Ginebra" was also founded late in the year. Ginebra was griefed in mid 2020. Not only was it The Republic's largest project yet, it also had the most base members. The Republic had also started a small base in 2019 named the Holy Land, after finishing Eagle's Nest and before starting Ginebra. This matters because after Ginebra was griefed in 2020, the group would go back to the Holy Land and start expanding it. The group would then decide to kick c0mmie_ for token logging, doxxing, and leaking The Holy Land. The Holy Land was later griefed by orsond and the Snake Platoon following the leak.
The Republic steered clear of group drama since its founding, but would eventually get into drama later on. Its largest contribution to the community was finding a TP exploit that was found to be able to lag the server, making it crash each time the glitched account joined back. They passed the information to Hausemaster
The group runs the "Republic Radio" YouTube channel, which houses the RRN (Republic Radio News) project.
The group is a direct democracy, their only rank is "Citizen", with the rest of the ranks being purely titular in nature. People vote in the "congress" chat for any proposals they have, and they also vote when someone wants to join the group. New members are given the same privileges and permissions as old members, Later The Republic would ally with the The Order due to aodrael and Bartolome_Mitre's friendship.
In 2020, a random player was exploring with elytra when he found the ruins of Versailles and the connected city of Ginebra. He leaked the coordinates in a reddit post, inviting anyone who waned to grief the place. After seeing this, the players commonly known as Crystal and Banzy started to save all the artifacts at the museum and defended the city for almost a week, killing all players who tried to grief it. This is known as "The battle of Versalles"
