What will the republic bring?

Happy New year everyone!

Can anyone help me with this one?

The hints say it's possibly the easiest puzzle in the book but as usual are not very helpful at all.

Does it have anything to do with code 35 ('seat' of power, inner circle vs inner dome)?

Kind of embarrassed to say, we're also stuck on this one.  It feels less like a puzzle that can be solved by working at it, and more like a riddle that requires thinking like the author to interpret some kind of wordplay.

And here's another hint:
