Mongolian term or phrase: Бүгд Найрамдах
Greetings,

Re the full version of БНМАУ (BTW many thanks for the correction last time), my book says that Бүгд Найрамдах Монгол Ард Улс means “Mongolian People’s Republic”.

The problem is that, at least to someone with my scanty Mongolian, Монгол Ард Улс (literally “Mongol People State”) would seem to mean “Mongolian People’s Republic” on its own.

Which, of course, invites the question: what is the exact meaning of Бүгд Найрамдах, please?

All the best,

Korea = Солонгос
Republic = Бүгд Найрамдах Улс

"Улс" does not have to be a Republic. It is a general term used in any term describing the state, including Kingdom, Empire, Federation etc.
For example: Kingdom of Saudi Arabia = Саудын Арабын Хаант Улс, Mongolian Empire = Монголын Эзэнт Улс, Russian Federation = Оросын Холбооны Улс, Mongolia = Монгол Улс.
