    Laosball, officially the Lao People’s Democratic Republicball, is a communist countryball located in Southeast Asia. It is one of the last five communist countryballs around the world and, along with Cubaball, the only two socialist countryballs not featuring any communist symbolism on its flag. Laosball is landlocked and cannot into sea (although Vietnamball gives it some permission to into sea). It exports goods through airplane and via the Mekong river that passes through Cambodiaball and Vietnamball. Unlike most communist countryballs, it is not too terribly bad-tempered. it has a very similar flag to Cambodiaball except the blue and red is switched and it has a moon in the centre, not Angkor Wat.

    History

    Laosball was born as a 1ball, as a part of the Tai-Kadai people, it settled south to the border of the Khmer Empireball by the 12th and 13th century.

    It then later became Kingdom of Lan Xangball or “land of the million elephants,” founded by Fa Ngum in 1353. Fa Ngum was born into the royal family in Mueang Suaball, the capitalball of a small state ruled by King Souvanna Khampong. When Fa Ngum was a baby, his grandfather, the reigning king, expelled Fa Ngum’s father (the heir to the throne), for failing to live up to his princely responsibilities. The family sought refuge at Angkorball and thus Fa Ngum was raised in the cradle of Khmer Empireball. As a grown man with a Khmer princess as wife, Fa Ngum fought his way back along the Mekong Valley to regain his birthright in Muang Suaball and to establish the unified Lao Kingdomball. In an attempt to unite the various ethnic groups, Kingdom of Lan Xangball introduced Theravada Buddhism. Khmer Empireball sent Buddhist scholars and scriptures, as well as a sacred golden Buddha called Pra Bang. Pra Bang was considered a symbol of the right to rule Laosball. It was placed in the capital, Muang Suaball, which was renamed Luang Prabangball in honour of the sacred image. For the next 200 years, Luang Prabangball was the religious and cultural centre.

    Over the years, Kingdom of Lan Xangball won and lost clay from Khmer Empireball, Toungooball, Dai Vietball, Ayutthayaball and Mingball in Yunnanball. By the 17th century, its holdings were quite sizable. However, its power began to crumble in 1694 when King Souligna Vongsa died without an heir. Internal strife, spurred on by various neighbours, ultimately split Lan Xangaball into three kingdoms: Kingdom of Luang Phrabangball in the north, Kingdom of Vientianeball in the centre and Kingdom of Champasakball in the south. The rivals never stopped quarrelling and Siamball easily invaded its clay, particularly by the years 1763 and 1769 and by the end of the 18th century, Siamball controlled most of present-day Laosball and Cambodiaball and held on to most of it.

    After an argument over Franceball followed by a conflict, Siamball ultimately ceded the Laosball to French Indochinaball in a bid to maintain its own independence—which worked. Franceball reunited the three kingdomballs and called the new adopted son and protectorate Laosball, from "les Laos", the plural form of the Lao people. Siamball retained what is now Northeast Thailandball, or Isanball, where many Laoballs lived then and still do. Today, there are more Laoballs living in Isan than in Laosball.

    Under Franceball's care, there was little real development in what they called the “land of the lotus-eaters.” Few roads were built, no universities were opened and there was little improvement in health care. The mountains posed a barrier to plantation farming and the Mekong was not suitable for merchant vessels. About the only real commercial activity was the export of opium. In all of Laosball, there were only a few hundred Frenchballs. The colonizers preferred to import Vietnamese to staff the administration while the Chinese engaged in trade. For the average Lao peasant farmer, life barely changed.

    French Indochinaball got anschlussed by the Empire of Japanball in World War II. When Japanball surrendered in 1945, Kingdom of Luang Phrabangball's child and prince Lao Issaraball resisted and removed the sushi imperialist by founding the. Kingdom of Luang Phrabangball at first called for independence to the dismay of Lao Issaraball, However spooked with the return of Franceball, had to call it off. In 1953, Franceball granted independence to Kingdom of Laosball. After that, Kingdom of Laosball became independent as a constitutional monarchy but an offshoot of the Lao Issaraball, called Pathet Laoball, felt like his dad was just bootlicking neocolonial powers so it resisted its owned father and befriended North Vietnamball. Franceball got its behind kicked by both Vietnams . USAball. started supplying Kingdom of Laosball with arms to fight its rebellious communist son.

    During the '50s, Laosball began suffering from a multi-personality syndrome.

    At the second Geneva conference in 1961-1962, Laosball declared itself neutral in the hope of avoiding future international conflicts, but this too was not to be. By the 1960s Laosball was dragged into the Cold War, mostly because of its geopolitical position beside Vietnamball.

    While the entire world watched the Vietnam War, few knew that a “secret war” was also being waged in Laos—with even more devastating results. Laos suffered the heaviest bombings of any country in history. Between 1964 and 1973 it had the distinction of being the world's most bombed countryball.

    After dealing with the syndrome for 22 years, there was an attempt at a coalition government between the communist Pathet Laoball and the royalist government, but as soon as Saigonball fell in April 1975, the Pathet Laoball, backed by North Vietnamball, took control with little opposition. On December 2, 1975, the king was deposed, Buddhism was removed as the state religion and Laosball became the Lao People’s Democratic Republicball (LPDRball). In the 1990s, Buddhism was reformed and reinstated as a way to promote nationalism.

    Laosball currently has some racial issues with Hmong 1balls living on its clay. Despite economic and social progress, Laos today cannot into human rights in 2003 there were descendants from the now-deceased Kingdom of Laosball creating an exiled government, but it looks like the monarchy will never return.
