What is the meaning of puppet republic?

Puppet Republic Jose P. Laurel was known to be the president of the puppet republic. He was elected as the 3rd President of the Philippines by the National Assembly on September 25, 1943, and was inaugurated on October 14, 1943. Born on March 9, 1891 in the small town of Tanuan in Batangas, Jose P. Laurel studied and received his law degree at the University of the Philippines in 1915 and at Yale University in 1920. His first entry in politics was in 1925, when he was elected to the Philippine Senate. In 1936 he was selected as associate justice of the Supreme Court. When the Japanese invaded our country, Laurel was the only high ranking official who chose to remain in Manila. Laurel had been vocal in his disapproval of the US control and because of his open dislike of the US government, the Japanese had given him numerous positions during its three-year reign. Laurel's government didn't get the Filipinos' full support. During his first year, Laurel was shot twice by Filipino rebels, but by some miracle survived. After the war, he was charged with 132 counts of treason but he never got into trial because of the general amnesty given in April 1948. In 1949, he ran again for president under the Nacionalista Party but was defeated by Elpidio Quirino, standard bearer of the Liberal Party. Upon his losing the presidency, he was later elected as senator and as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention. He was recognized because of his support for women's freedom and rights, and his assistance in the Bill of Rights of the Constitution. When Magsaysay sat as president in 1955, Laurel became the lead of an economic mission to the United States. His job was to enhance and develop the relationship between the Philippines and the United States. In 1957, he retired from the political arena and led a normal life with his former wife, Paciencia Hidalgo. Jose Laurel died on November 5, 1959.

What might be the consequence if the president could fire the vice president?

They can't but, if the president could fire the vice president, this could mean that the person who is the vice president was not the person citizens voted for in the presidential elections. First, that could cause anger amongst people who would feel cheated/betrayed. Secondly, the president could carefully select who they wanted to be vice president so that the vice president agrees with everything the president says, giving more power to the president (turning the vice president into a 'puppet leader').
