If anything, it means that there was one before, maybe several and that Palpatine's Republic is only one of many.
For once, I actually agree with you. When he said the Republic has stood for a thousand years, maybe he meant the modern Republic - one thousand years before he said that, there was a major turning point in Republic history - the Sith vanished, and the Republic was de-militarized.
Or he could have reffering to how it stood for for one thousand years without war.

Of course, what's a better source? The movies or KOTOR? Definitely the second.
