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.

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.

Không có gì ngoài tầm với của chúng ta ("Nothing is out of our reach")

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.
