The People's Republic of Ziridava (PRZ; Народна република Зиридава) was the official name of Ziridava, when it was a socialist republic. The People's Republic of Ziridava existed from 1948 to 1987 and it was ruled by the Ziridavan Communist Party (ZCP).


Government and politics[edit]

The constitution was changed several times, with the Vancho Constitution lasting the longest. According to article 1, "The People's Republic of Ziridava is a socialist state, headed by the working people of the village and the city. The leading force in society and politics is the Ziridava Communist Party".

The PRZ functioned as a one-party people's republic, with People's Committees representing local governance. Their role was to exercise Party decisions in their respective areas and to otherwise defer to popular opinion in decision-making. In the early 1980s, the ZCP had an estimated peak membership of 1,000,000 — more than 10% of the population.
