___ Political Map of Lao People's Democratic Republic (Laos)
|Laos or Lao is a landlocked country on Mainland southeast Asia, formerly part of (French) Indochina, that encompassed modern day Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. The country is also bordered by Thailand, China and Myanmar (Burma).
Laos became independent in 1953, but for most of the next 25 years was torn by civil strife between the communist Pathet Lao movement and government supporters.
In 1975, the Pathet Lao achieved total control, and a communist republic was established. The end of the 20th century saw a gradual return to free enterprise.
The country has a population of 7 million inhabitants (2015 est.). Capital and largest city is Vientiane (Viang Chan) with an estimated population of 580,000 people. Spoken language are Laotian (official) and Thai.
