Howan (Kwangju:호완 공화국 Howan Gonghwagug), officially The Republic of Howan, was a Parliamentary Democracy that existed between the countries of Seongpo and Kwangju DPR from 1953 until the Reunification of Kwangju in 2013. Like subsequent governments, it claimed sovereignty over the entire Kwangju peninsula, although it only had power over an area surrounding Taejon, the former capital city of the Kwangju Empire. The investiture of the Kim government followed the collapse of the Republic of Kwangju weeks earlier.. The country's first constitution had been promulgated hastily by the first National Assembly on July 17. It established a system with a strong president, who was elected indirectly by the National Assembly.
