Rhodesia was formerly known as Southern Rhodesia, a self governing colony of Britain. Following its Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) in 1965 it became known simply as Rhodesia. There was a brief period, later, when it was known as Zimbabwe Rhodesia, but the successor state is Zimbabwe.

Rhodesia had centralised government and was divided into five provinces and later two cities, Bulawayo and Salisbury were designated with provincial status, for administrative purposes.
