The Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Viet: Cộng hòa Xã hội Chủ nghĩa Việt Nam) is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is bordered by China to the north, Laos to the northwest, Cambodia to the southwest, and the South China Sea, referred to as East Sea (Biển Đông), to the east.

History

Vietnam became independent from Imperial China in 938 AD, following the Battle of Bạch Đằng River, though it's believed that the country is supposedly ruled by Hồng Bàng Dynasty for over 2000 years, until the third century BC. Successive Vietnamese royal dynasties flourished as the nation expanded geographically and politically into Southeast Asia, until the Indochina Peninsula was colonized by the France in the mid-19th century.

However, with French control weakened in the aftermath of World War II, the Communist Party of Vietnam led by Ho Chi Minh forced the last Emperor of Nguyễn Dynasty to abdicate and establish a communist government.

As the Soviet Union further gained territory in Southeast Asia following fighting along the coast of Japan, the Republic of Korea dispatched two divisions to Vietnam to defend the country against a major Soviet strike force.

Tiberium Universe

Very little is known about the history and government of Vietnam in the Tiberium universe. During the First Tiberium War, it was considered a Nod-affiliated nation.

By the Third Tiberium War, Vietnam and nearly all of south-east Asia became classified as a Yellow Zone.
