He is saying that at the beginning of the republic (form of government probably talked about in the book) everybody was really into politics. All the people were excited to be involved and willing to work in politics. The culture revolved around politics.
The supercharged political culture of the early republic" is a term used by Ellis to describe the mood of the time.
