A landlocked country in Southeast Asia; population 6,834,300 (est. 2009); capital, Vientiane; official language, Laotian.

Part of French Indo-China, 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
