A country in Southeast Asia that has gone through enourmous Imperial and Colonial rule. As well as lots of wars to be it's own country.
China controlled the country for over 1000 years, and Vietnam revolted. France, and Japan during WWII, than controlled it 1887-1954, the French were cruel to the Vietnamese people and forced many of them into rubber plantations. France lost it's control by the Viet Minh, a communist group who wanted to free their country of France's rule.

A beautiful country with a rich culture and history dating back over 3,000 years. A former French colony, along with Cambodia and Laos, from the late 1800s to the early 1950s; as such, Vietnam's two largest cities, the capital Hanoi and the financial center Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon), share the title of "Paris of Southeast Asia" and have many buildings and monuments of French design.
