A Christian republic is a governmental system that comprises both Christianity and republicanism. Jean-Jacques Rousseau and John Locke considered the idea to be an impossibility, a self-contradiction, but for different reasons. As of the 21st century, the only countries in the world with a republican form of government and with Christianity enshrined in the constitution as established religion are Argentina, Costa Rica, Finland, Greece, Iceland and Malta.
