The Federation of Puncak Raya, officially known as Federasi Komune-Komune Otonom Puncak Raya (en: Autonomous Communes Federation of Puncak Raya) or Federasi Puncak Raya, is a autonomous region of Democratic Republic of Sunda Raya. It was established on July 26, 2016 by the Regional Workers Council of Parahyangan. It is located in Soviet Socialist Republic of Parahyangan, West Java, in the vicinity of Mount Gede and Mount Pangrango. It is consisted of 3 autonomous communes.
An amendment of the Constitution of Sunda Raya resulted in several structural changes in the state structure. After the amendment, the local workers councils retain numerous constitutional rights including the rights to set up autonomous regions under the federal entities. This rights may be exercised through a referendum or by a decision of the Regional Workers Council.

Despite some controversies, the Regional Workers Council of Parahyangan approved the formation in the end of July. Objections to the formation came from the pro-centralization faction.
