We are the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnamese: Cộng hòa Xã hội chủ nghĩa Việt Nam), also known as Vietnam. We are a Marxist-Leninist one-party state located in South East Asia, Indochina Peninsula. We have fought many brave wars, with defending our homeland in our minds. We expelled the French in 1954, and have successfully defended our nation from the Americans during the Resistance War against America, also known as the Vietnam War (Vietnamese: Chiến trahn Việt Nam), completely liquidating the enemy forces in 1975. The previous Democratic Republic of Vietnam regime and the South Vietnam region were unified into one socialist state in 1976.















Important figures

Hồ Chí Minh portrait 1
  • Eternal Leader of Socialist Vietnam Hồ Chí Minh

Hồ Chí Minh was given the title of Eternal Leader of Socialist Vietnam on Oct. 6th 2017. This means he is the de-facto head of state of Vietnam, even though he died in 1969. Lố Công Thỉnh acts as the current de-facto head of state and the face of Vietnam. His powers are equal to Minh's.


  • Grand Marshal of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam shoulder board 1 Grand Marshal of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam Lố Công Thỉnh:

Also Chairman of the Communist Party, effectively him the head of state. However he is addressed by his rank, Grand Marshal of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, or simply Grand Marshal. He is also referred to as Supreme Leader of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. He gained power in 1996, and was sworn in as Chairman of the Communist Party and President of Vietnam on June 6th 1997. On September 4th 1999, he abolished the presidential office and promoted himself to his current rank, Grand Marshal. He kept his post as Chairman of the Comunist Party, but still kept his position of the head of state. He also holds the rank of Supreme Commander of the People's Army of Vietnam, effectively making him commander-in-chief of the military.

He rules Vietnam with resourceful care, always thinking about the people. However, if threatened or faced with the task of punishing criminals/enemies, he will most likely show little mercy. He has learned many lessons from the legendary Ho Chi Minh, and models his cult of personality and ruling style after him.

Quyết Thấng ("Determined to Win")

The Vietnam People's Army Ground Force (VPAGF) is the armed branch of the Vietnam People's Army responsible for land-based military operations, protection of Vietnam's borders and to conduct ground humane rescue operations. However, they can work in conjunction with the other branches of the Army, including the Navy, Air Force, Strategic Rocket Force and the Red Guards.

The VPAGF saw extensive action during the Resistance War Against America (Vietnam War), under the command of Ho Chi Minh as the North Vietnamese Army (NVA). The Vietnam People's Army was formed in 1944 as the army of the Viet Minh, and then the later Democratic Republic of [North] Vietnam. The NVA, working closely and secretly with the National Liberation Front (Viet-Cong), were able to fend off and successfully drive away the U.S. imperialist forces during the war, and soon went on to defeat the South Vietnamese military and retake Saigon in 1975.

Nowadays, the VPAGF is a reasonably equipped force, fielding 580,000 active duty personnel with 120,000 reserve. Fielding modern day tanks, artillery, small arms and other equipment. the VPAGF also operates a large number of Soviet and Chinese made equipment, however numerous political reforms have caused the VPAGF to field indigenously made weapons. The VPAGF lacks in sheer numbers, however their reliable and high quality weapons, along with the average soldier's higher training level, make the Vietnam People's Army Ground Force a "small" but extremely resilient force.

The People's Army of Vietnam Strategic Rocket Forces (PAVNSRF), also known as the Missile Guidance Bureau, or the People's Army Missile Artillery Corps, is a branch of the People's Army of Vietnam (and to some extent the Air Force too) which specializes in the offensive and defensive missile capabilities of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. It was founded in early 2017, in direct response to the Soviet Strategic Rocket Forces, and because of the lack of a branch responsible for offensive and defensive missile operations.

Headquartered in Huế, they operate thousands of bases and missile facilities which have been built at the start of 2017 throughout Vietnam. They also operate strategic bases, launch pads and other facilities in the neighboring countries of Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and West Malaysia. The force is made up of 51,000 personnel, and operate a variety of missiles since January of 2017.

Một bước gần hơn với hòa bình thế giới ("One Step Closer to World Peace")

The Lực lượng Bảo vệ Hòa bình nhân dân (lit. "People's Peace Guard") the main department instructed to carry out foreign and internal peacebuilding, peacemaking and peace enforcement operations, as well as providing humanitarian aid to people in need of it, armed protection and escort to press, medical or political advisors within hostile or under stable countries and general peacekeeping operations in said locations.

The People's Peacekeeping Force is ordered by the Ministry of Peace to help enforce human rights in corrupted or unstable countries. Currently, there are 94,000 peacekeepers enlisted, with 1,000+ vehicles and 500 aircraft. Peacekeepers are usually armed, and are instructed to carry out a variety of tasks. Even though the PPF uses the same/similar equipment to those fielded by the People's Army of Vietnam, the Peacekeeping Force is in fact not apart (nor does affiliate itself) with the military.

People's Peacekeeping Force registered vehicles and aircraft bare an all white paint work, with the abbreviation "PPG" written in black on the front, sides, rear, wings or tail. PPF uniforms are reminiscent of military ones, except helmets are white with "PPG" stamped onto them. PPF armbands also exist, as well as vests marked with PPF insignia. The Vietnamese flag may be present next to said insignia.

If deployed, groups ranging from 100 to 500 peacekeepers will be dispatched to a certain area, taking command from a Peace Officer. The People's Peacekeeping Force is rarely authorized to use deadly force, as loss of life is frowned upon by the PPF and goes strictly against the code. Peacekeepers are mainly taught in the medical field, with the majority of the PPF's interest devoted to providing humanitarian aid to those that fall victim to an armed conflict, corrupted government or natural disasters.

Armed peacekeepers are usually deployed to hostile or dangerous areas to help protect civilians or try to negotiate and peacefully end conflicts from rogue, guerrilla forces or illegal activities. If a peacekeeper falls victim to an attack carried out by a foreign nation or government, it will be considered an act of war against the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the perpetrators may face severe economical or military sanctions and charges from the Vietnamese government.
