rolig commented on the word sovdepia
A derogatory name for the Soviet Union especially in the early years. It comes from the acronym "Sovdep" for Sovet deputatov, or "Council of Deputies". As a state of mind, Sovdepia is connected to the worst excesses of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat as embodied by the Communist Party of the USSR.
