The Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic, (Georgian SSR; Georgian: საქართველოს საბჭოთა სოციალისტური რესპუბლიკა, translit.: sakartvelos sabch'ota sotsialist'uri resp'ublik'a; Russian: Грузинская Советская Социалистическая Республика Gruzinskaya Sovetskaya Sotsialisticheskaya Respublika) also commonly known as Soviet Georgia or simply known as Georgia, was one of the republics of the Soviet Union from its inception in 1922 to its breakup in 1991.

It is coterminous with the present-day republic of Georgia, a preexisting country in the Caucasus which gained autonomy as a constituent republic of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics after being annexed by the Russian Empire in 1810 and in 1921 by the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. From November 18, 1989, the Georgian SSR declared its sovereignty over Soviet laws. The republic was renamed to the Republic of Georgia on November 14, 1990 and subsequently became independent before the dissolution of the Soviet Union on April 9, 1991, whereupon each former SSR became a sovereign state. The Soviet Georgian state officially ended on August 24, 1995 when the new official constitution of Georgia was ratified.

Geographically, the Georgian SSR was bordered by Turkey to the south-west and the Black Sea to the west. Within the Soviet Union it bordered the Russian SFSR to the north, Armenian SSR to the south and the Azerbaijan SSR to the south-east.
