The Roman Empire model seems to be quite accurate.
This situation does make a lot of sense too.
Since the Republic was the only large scale government in
the Galaxy it would not need a large standing army. After all,
there was no external threat and apperently the Jedi were
sufficient as an internal peackeeping force. (A large army
maintaining internal peace would be seen as an attempt to increase
the power of the central government and probably be opposed by
the individual member states anyway.)
