The Galactic Republic was the name of the galactic government prior to the establishment of the Galactic Empire in 19 BBY.
The Galactic Republic was composed of a significant portion of the known galaxy, stretching from the Core Worlds to Wild Space, though it was widely believed that the government held little power in the outlying regions, and preferred to focus its attentions on the Core Worlds.
The capital of the Galactic Republic was Coruscant, a planet considered to be the cultural and economical center of the galaxy, despite being located outside of the Deep Core.

 Rebel Alliance (Star Wars) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In the fictional Star Wars universe, the Rebel Alliance, or more formally, the Alliance to Restore the Republic, was an interstellar political resistance force formed in direct military opposition to the Galactic Empire.
It is not yet known exactly when the Alliance formed, but we do know it was at some point during the onset of the Galactic Civil War when Chancellor Palpatine transformed the Galactic Republic into the Empire with himself as Emperor.
The Alliance suffered a setback on Hoth when one of their main bases was overrun by Darth Vader's forces, but eventually they later managed to mass a fleet to destroy the second Death Star in the Battle of Endor in which both the Emperor and Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker were also killed.

The Galactic Republic is the force that clearly means for us to cheer for even as their transformation into the Empire is going on even before our very eyes.
The Republic military is an area that one would assume the Jedi would keep clean but ’Base Delta Zero8’ comes quickly to this time and furthermore Palpatine issues an order for the destruction of Cestus for merely the likelihood that it would create a small number of droids that might effect the war’s progress9.
The Republic is a monster that the Jedi are right to preserve the ideal of but no more so than the Imperials attempting to do the same of their world since the reality was barely different than the Empire.

 The Star Wars Galaxy
With the underlying assumption that the standard parsec in the Galactic Republic is identical to that of Earth's, this establishes that the two systems are between 1 and 3.2618 light years apart - a distance that would be invisibly small on even a two-page galaxy map that spans over 100+ KLY.
Yet Wizards of the Coast's 2-page galactic map of the Star Wars Galaxy has the two planets marked in two distinctly separate systems - which was not done likewise for the Hoth and Anoat systems (thus implying that the relative distance was not distorted for purposes of clarity).
Likewise, the Vector Prime map, strictly interpreted, confines the scope of the Galactic Republic/Empire to that of the nucleus, with practically no inhabited planets outside of it (indeed, the VP map indicates that nearly half of the nucleus is outside of the Galactic Republic/Empire).
