The Rahvakogu of the Republic of North Dveria (Dverian: Põhja-Dveriya Vabariik Rahvakogu), or simply the Rahvakogu is the unicameral parliament of North Dveria. The Rahvakogu constitutes the legislative branch of government in North Dveria, enacting laws and amendments to the Constitution, passing the budget, confirming the Prime Minister and the Government and controlling their activities.

Its 200 members are elected for a four-year term in a vote based on closed list proportional representation from 20 mutli-member constituencies with seats allocated according to the D'Hondt method. A party must receive at least 5% of the vote in a constituency to qualify for the proportional representation seats. Elections are scheduled to be held the third Wednesday of November every four years assuming no snap elections are held.
