The Czechoslovak Socialist Republic (Czech/Slovak: Československá socialistická republika, ČSSR) was the Czechoslovak state under Communist rule from 1948 until 23 April 1990, when the name was changed following the 1989 Velvet Revolution. It has been regarded as a satellite state of the Soviet Union.
Following the coup d'état of February 1948, when the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia seized power with the support of the Soviet Union, the country was declared a people’s republic after the Ninth-of-May Constitution became effective. The traditional name Československá republika (Czechoslovak Republic) was changed on 11 July 1960 following implementation of the 1960 Constitution of Czechoslovakia as a symbol of the “final victory of socialism” in the country, and remained so until the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia. Several other state symbols were changed in 1960.
