Prior to 1991, year during which the Soviet Union was dissolved, there were only 5 registered communists in Lernamerdz.
Today, all of the villagers claim that they adhere to the socialist ideology, and think that "everyone will be happy then and the sun will shine brightly" if communism is reestablished in Armenia. The village, also called "Little Cuba" has attracted many communist visitors, because of its special status.
