IG Factbook: "South East Asia is a grouping of countries to the south of China and that border onto the sea to the south. Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. With the India Ocean to the south, this grouping of counties tends to be impacted by the weather systems this influences and creates. Most Cambodians consider themselves to be Khmers, descendants of the Angkor Empire that extended over much of Southeast Asia and reached its zenith between the 10th and 13th centuries. Thailand was known as Siam until 1939 and is the only Southeast Asian country never to have been taken over by a European power. The Franco-Siamese Treaty of 1907 defined the current Lao border with Thailand. The conquest of Vietnam by France began in 1858 and foreign involvement in wars only ended in 1973 when US forces were withdrawn following a cease-fire agreement. Burma has been under military dictatorship for decades, a process with is only just beginning to thaw now following protest and pressure."
