(noun) nickname for the city of Berkeley, California, known not only for its well-known public University with a tradition of free speech, but for its reputation as a liberal/progressive community and a tradition (dating back to the Vietnam War) of the city government taking positions and passing resolutions on foreign policy issues (despite it having no influence or authority in this arena).
A: Why is the City Council debating the use of Predator drones in Pakistan? Aren't there potholes that need filling and budgets to balance?
B: Welcome to the People's Republic of Berkeley.
