On November 7, 1931, the anniversary of the 1917 Russian Bolshevik Revolution, a National Soviet People’s Delegates Conference was held in Ruijin (瑞金), Jiangxi province. Ruijin had been selected as the national capital and the Republic had received assistance from the Soviet Union to accommodate the gathering. The “Chinese Soviet Republic” (Chinese: “中華蘇維埃共和國”) was thus born, even though the majority of China was still under control of the nationalist Government of the Republic of China. On that day, they had an opening ceremony for the new country, while Mao Zedong and other communists attended this military parade. Because it had its own national bank, printed its own money, collected tax through its own tax bureau, it is therefore considered as the beginning of Two Chinas.
