'''Vietnam''' ( Its capital city has been Hanoi since the reunification of North (North Vietnam) and South Vietnam in 1976.
Vietnam was part of Imperial China for over a millennium, from 111 BC to 938 AD. The Vietnamese became independent from Imperial China (Imperial Chinese) in AD 938, following the Vietnamese victory in the Battle of Bạch Đằng River (Battle of Bạch Đằng River (938)). Successive Vietnamese royal dynasties (List of Vietnamese monarchs) flourished as the nation expanded geographically and politically into Southeast Asia, until the Indochina Peninsula was colonized by the French (French Indochina) in the mid-19th century. Following a Japanese occupation (Japanese invasion of French Indochina) in the 1940s, the Vietnamese fought French rule in the First Indochina War, eventually expelling the French in 1954. Thereafter, Vietnam was divided politically into two rival states, North and South Vietnam. Conflict between the two sides intensified, with heavy intervention from the United States, in what is known as the Vietnam War. The war ended with a North Vietnamese victory in 1975.
Vietnam was then unified under a communist (Communism) government but remained impoverished and politically isolated. In 1986, the government initiated a series of economic and political reforms (Doi Moi) which began Vietnam's path towards integration into the world economy. Its successful economic reforms resulted in its joining the World Trade Organization in 2007.
However, regardless of the advancements that have been made in recent years, the country still experiences high levels of income inequality, disparities in access to healthcare, and a lack of gender equality.
