In The Republia TimesEdit
Though not much information is given about Republia in Papers, Please, a country with the same name is also featured in The Republia Times, another game created by Lucas Pope. Republia, despite being land-locked in Papers, Please, fields a large navy and has natural disasters taking place along its coastline in The Republia Times, indicating that the game may take place in a universe slightly similar to Papers, Please or in the same universe but several years after the events depicted in Papers, Please. While it is also possible that the events in The Republia Times are set before Papers, Please, it is worth noticing that in The Republia Times, the internet is a widespread phenomenon, while it was not still the the case by 1982, the year Papers, Please takes place.
It is explained that Republia was recently at war with Antegria. The two countries are locked in a Cold War-style rivalry, and similarly to Papers, Please, mysterious rebels will try to persuade the player to help them. If successful, the rebels, led by a person called Kurstov, take over Republia and change its name to Democria (and then back to Republia if the same game played again with the new government).
