  Cambodia under Pol Pot (1975-1979) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On the surface, society in Democratic Kampuchea was strictly egalitarian.
They included none of what are commonly regarded as guarantees of political human rights except the statement that "men and women are equal in every respect." The document declared, however, that "all workers" and "all peasants" were "masters" of their factories and fields.
It consisted of a state presidium "responsible for representing the state of Democratic Kampuchea inside and outside the country." It served for a five-year term, and its president was head of state.

 Cambodia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cambodia is the traditional English transliteration, taken from the French Cambodge, while Kampuchea is the direct transliteration, more faithful to the Khmer pronunciation.
The Khmer Kampuchea is derived from the ancient Khmer kingdom of Kambuja (Kambujadesa).
Kambuja or Kamboja is the ancient Sanskrit name of the Kambojas, an early tribe of north India, named after their founder Kambu Svayambhuva, believed to be a variant of Cambyses.
