Form of government (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

republic

'form of government' is the definition.
(republic is a kind of form of government)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for republic that I've seen before include "Nation in which the head of state is elected" , "Cure blip (anag.)" , "State without monarch" , "Country in which supreme power is held by the people" , "Cuba, say" .)

I've seen this clue in the L.A. Times Magazine, the King Feature Syndicate, the New York Times, The Sun and The Telegraph.
