Republic of South Vietnam

The Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Vietnam was a Communist government formed by the National Liberation Front (NLF) in 1969 in opposition to the anti-Communist U.S.-supported Republic of Vietnam. After the fall of Saigon in 1975, the Republic of South Vietnam assumed power and ruled for 15 months.

In July 1976, the Republic of South Vietnam and the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam) were united into the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
