The Ruvelkan Socialist Republic, sometimes referred to as the Ruvelkan Socialist Federative Republic, was a socialist state that existed in northwest Siduri from 5 March 1865 to 13 September 1918. It was a one-party state, governed by the National Communist Party of Ruvelka with Kaposvár as its capital. The Republic was founded following an armed uprising in Kaposvár in response to the conservative and stagnant politics of the Ruvelkan Imperium; it resulted in a two-year long civil war that ended in 1867.

The first years of the Socialist Republic were characterized by broad, sweeping liberal and socialist reforms under the guidance of András Váradi. The former nobility of the Imperium was effectively disbanded and many of the royal families that remained in Ruvelka after the Red War were stripped of their titles and most of their wealth. Although Váradi pioneered a policy of reconciliation between the classes, social turmoil between former nobles and the working class continued throughout the entirety of the Republic’s existence.

In the decades after Váradi’s death, the Socialist Republic entered into a period of political radicalization that led to a wave of politically motivated arrests. This period, known as the Red Scare, alongside the ongoing over-bureaucratization in the government eventually culminated in the 1914 Ruvelkan Revolution and the 1914 December Uprising. A second civil war followed that eventually led to the dissolution of the Socialist Republic and the creation of the modern Ruvelkan state. However, despite the fall of the Socialist Republic, many of its ideas and policies were later adopted following the foundation of the Principality.
