Vietnam – Socialist Republic of Vietnam  

Most countries in the world have been conquered over and over again by different groups. Vietnam was different because it enjoyed freedom for over 1,000 years. The country was settled over 5,000 years ago by native tribes. In 207 B.C., a Chinese lord invaded their country, naming it Nam Viet. The Chinese ruled the country until 939 A.D., when a general and his army drove them out. It wasn’t until the 19th century that the country was conquered again – this time by France. During World War II, Japan invaded Vietnam. After the war, the northern part of Vietnam became communist, while the south did not. For almost 20 years, the north and the south fought. The United States, as well as Russia, China and other countries, was involved in the war. Finally, in 1975, the northern armies overtook the south. The country still has a communist government.
