    Thighlandball Tielandball Taiwanball Thailandball, officially known as Kingdom of 55555 Thailand (formerly Siamball), is a countryball at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia. It is the world's 51st-largest country. It is the 22nd-most-populous country in the world, with around 69 million people NICE. Its capital and largest city is Bangkokball. Thailand sits beside Cambodiaball, Laosball, Myanmarball, and Malaysiaball. Being a monarchy since 1238, and a constitutional monarchy since 1932, Thailandball is the only country in Southeast Asia to have never been colonized by European countryballs. It is also one of the founding members of ASEANball. Thailand also has the longest city name, and it is another name of Bangkokball, Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasitball (167 letters).

    It is sometimes seen as a candidate for a fifth Asian Tiger.

    Recently, in 9 June 2022, Thailandball decriminalized the use of marijuana.

    History

    Ancient Thailand (Pre-10th Century)

    Thailandball is a descendant of Tai-Kadai speaking 1balls. Similar to other regions in Southeast Asia, Thailand was heavily influenced by the culture and religions of Indiaball, starting with the Kingdom of Funanball in around the 1st century AD to the Khmer Empire-ball.

    Prior to the arrival of the Thai people and culture into what is now Thailand, the region hosted a number of indigenous Austroasiatic-speaking and Malayo-Sumbawan-speaking civilizations. However, little is known about Thailand before the 13th century... Similar to other regions in Southeast Asia, Thailand was heavily influenced by the culture and religions of India, starting with the Kingdom of Funanball in around the first century until the Khmer Empireball.

    Indian influence on Siamese culture was partly the result of direct contact with Indian settlers, but mainly it was brought about indirectly via Dvaravatiball, Srivijayaball and the Khmer Empireball, and later by the south Indian Pallavaball and north Indian Guptaball.

    Classical Thailand (10th - 13th Century)

    The Taiballs from the north gradually settled in the Chao Phraya valley from the tenth century onwards, in lands of Dvaravatiball, assimilating the earlier Austroasiatic Monballs and Khmerballs, as well as coming into contact with the Khmer Empireball.

    There were many civilizations during this age, where the Taiballs set up many civilizations, or 'mandalas'. Several mandalas included Lavo Kingdomball, Nakhon Si Thammarat Kingdomball, and so on.

    Sukhothai and the Founding of the Thai Alphabet (1238 - 1438)

    Many Thai city-states gradually became independent of the weakened Khmer Empireball. One such state was Sukhothaiball. This all began when two friends, Pho Khun Bangklanghao and Pho Khun Pha Mueang revolted against the Khmer governor of Sukhothaiball. Bangklanghao ruled Sukhothaiball as Sri Indradityaball – and began the Phra Ruang Dynasty—he expanded his primordial kingdom to the bordering cities. At the end of his reign in 1257, Sukhothaiball covered the entire upper valley of the Chao Phraya River.

    Under the rule of Pho Khun Ramkamhaeng, Sukhothaiball expanded its clay into the south and the north. Under Ramkamhaeng, Sukhothaiball was introduced to Theravadaball and Theravadaball was made into the religion of Sukhothaiball. Sukhothaiball also introduced the first draft of the Thai alphabet (Lai Sue Thai (Thai;ลายสือไทย), which would lay the foundation for modern Thai alphabets of today.

    Ayutthaya's Rule, and the first Farangs! (1438 - 1767)

    Thailandball was born as a small clay called Siamball in 1351, its capitalball was Ayutthayaball (now a province of Thailandball). In 1540 it expanded its clay by conquering Khmerball, the weak siblings Laosball, Lannaball, some southern part of Chinaball and some northern part of modern day Malaysiaball. It had a lot of conflicts with its neighbors like Daivietball.

    In around 1446 to 1459, it launched 3 attacks to Malaccaball but failed :(, and Kingdom of Portugalball began making trade relations with Ayutthayaball. This contact with the West during the 16th century led to a period of economic growth as lucrative trade routes were established. Many foreigners such as the Dutch, French, Japanese, Greek, Chinese, Spanish, English, and Danish.

    However, aside from that, Ayutthayaball fought Burmaball (now Myanmarball) in many wars, and started to lose in its waning days.

    1767 was described to be its worst year ever. Burmaball who had multiple personality disorders, attacked it and it lost because it wasn't well-prepared. Burmaball killed Ayutthayaball (the capitalball) by vigorously burning it down with a lot of fire. Siamball lost all of its clay but some of its people survived and moved to Thonburiball.

    Siam is not yet lost! - the Thonburi Kingdom (1767 - 1782)

    Thonburi became the new capitalball of Siamball. Burmaball who was still in disorder quickly attacked again but this time it won. This was due to a rapid recovery and Thonburiball was being led by a capable military leader, Taksin. Taksin then began to expand Thonburiball's clay and expanded to western Cambodiaball, Laosball and northern Malayaball.

    However, during this short-lived Siamese state's existence, there was political trouble, and Taksin developed a religious mania, alienating the powerful Buddhist monkhood by claiming to be a sotapanna or divine figure. He was also in troubles with the court officials, Chinese merchants, and missionaries. The foreign observers began to speculate that he would soon be overthrown.

    In 1782 Taksin sent his armies under Chakri, the future Rama I of Rattanakosin, to invade Cambodiaball, but while they were away a rebellion broke out in the area around the capital. The rebels, who had wide popular support, offered the throne to General Chakri, the 'supreme general'. Chakri who was on war duty marched back from Cambodiaball and deposed Taksin, who was purportedly 'secretly executed' shortly after.

    Long live the King! - Early Modern Siam (1782 - 1851)

    Later in 1782, Siamball moved the capitalball to Bangkokball or Rattanakosinball (full name in Thai: Krungthep Mahanakorn Amornratanakosin Mahintara Ayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noparat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasatan Amornpiman Avatar Satit Sakathadtiya Witsanukum Prasitball), the current capitalball which is the longest city name in the world.

    Chakri, now known as Rama I restored most of the social and political system of Ayutthayaball, promulgating new law codes, reinstating court ceremonies and imposing discipline on the Buddhist monkhood. The Burmese, seeing the disorder accompanying the overthrow of Taksin, invaded Siamball's clay again in 1785. Rama allowed them to occupy both the north and the south, but the Update, vice-king, his brother, led the Siamese army into western Siamball and crushed the Burmese forces in a battle near Kanchanaburiball.

    This was the last major Burmese invasion of Siamball, although as late as 1802 Burmese forces had to be driven out of Lannaball. In 1792 the Siamese occupied Luang Prabangball and brought most of Laosball under indirect Siamese rule.

    Cambodiaball was also effectively ruled by Siamball. By the time of his death in 1809, Rama I had created a Siamese overlordship dominating an area considerably larger than modern Thailandball.

    The Enlightenment of Siam (1851 - 1868)

    European colonial powers threatened it in the 19th and early 20th centuries, but Thailandball (then known as Siamball) survived as the only Southeast Asian state to avoid European colonial rule because the Franceball and the UKball decided it would be a neutral territory to avoid conflicts between their colonies.

    This was due to Mongkut, or Rama IV, who welcomed Western intrusion in Siamball. The king himself and his entourages were actively pro-British. This became evident in 1855 when a mission led by the Governor of Hong Kongball, Sir John Bowring, arrived in Bangkokball with demands for immediate changes, backed by the threat of force.

    The king readily agreed to demands for a new treaty, called the Bowring Treaty, which restricted import duties to three percent, abolished royal trade monopolies, and granted extraterritoriality to British subjects. Other Western powers soon demanded and got similar concessions.

    The king came to believe that the real threat to Siamball came from the French, not the British. The British were interested in commercial advantage, the French in building a colonial empire. They occupied Saigonball in 1842, and 1846 established a protectorate over southern Vietnamball and eastern Cambodiaball.

    Rama IV hoped that the British would defend Siamball if he gave them the economic concessions they demanded. In the next reign this would prove to be an illusion, but it is true that the British saw Siamball as a useful buffer state between British Burmaball and French Indochinaball.

    Reform and Modernization - King Chulalongkorn's Reign (1868 - 1910)

    Rama IV died in 1868, and was succeeded by his 15-year-old son Chulalongkorn, who reigned as Rama V and is now known as Rama the Great. Rama V was the first Siamese king to have a full Western education, having been taught by a British governess, Anna Leonowens – whose place in Siamese history has been fictionalised as The King and I.

    At first Rama V's reign was dominated by the conservative regent, Chaophraya Si Suriyawongse, but when the king came of age in 1873 he soon took control. He created a Privy Council and a Council of State, a formal court system and budget office. He announced that slavery would be gradually abolished and debt-bondage restricted.

    In 1893 French authorities in Indochinaball used a minor border dispute to provoke a crisis. French gunboats appeared at Bangkokball and demanded the cession of Lao territories east of the Mekong.

    The king appealed to the British, but the British minister told the king to settle on whatever terms he could get. The king had no choice but to comply. UKball's only gesture was an agreement with Franceball guaranteeing the integrity of the rest of Siamball.

    In exchange, Siamball had to give up its claim to the Tai-speaking Shan region of northeastern Burmaball to the British.

    The French, however, continued to pressure Siamball, and in 1906–1907 they manufactured another crisis. This time Siamball had to concede the French control of territory on the west bank of the Mekong opposite Luang Prabangball and around Champasakball in southern Laosball, as well as western Cambodiaball.

    The British interceded to prevent more French pressure on Siamball, but their price in 1909 was the acceptance of British sovereignty over of northern Malaya under the Anglo-Siamese Treaty of 1909. All of these "lost territories" were on the fringes of the Siamese sphere of influence and had never been securely under their control, but being compelled to abandon all claim to them was a substantial humiliation to both king and country.

    Historian David K. Wyatt describes Chulalongkorn as "broken in spirit and health" following the 1893 crisis. It became the basis for the country's name change: with the loss of these territories Great Siam was no more, the king now ruled only the core "Thai lands".

    Meanwhile, reform continued apace, transforming an absolute monarchy based on relationships of power into a modern, centralized nation-state. The process was increasingly under the control of Rama V's European-educated sons. Railways and telegraph lines united previously remote and semi-autonomous provinces. The currency was tied to the gold standard and a modern system of taxation replaced the arbitrary levies and labor services of the past.

    The biggest problem was the shortage of trained civil servants, and many foreigners had to be employed until new schools could be built and Siamese graduates produced. By 1910, when the king died, Siamball had become a semi-modern country and continued to escape colonial rule.

    From a kingdom to modern nation (1910 - 1925)

    One of Rama V's reforms was to introduce a Western-style law of royal succession, so in 1910 he was peacefully succeeded by his son Vajiravudh, who reigned as Rama VI. He had been educated at Sandhurst military academy and at Oxford and was an anglicized Edwardian gentleman. Indeed, one of Siamball's problems was the widening gap between the Westernised royal family and upper aristocracy and the rest of the country. It took another 20 years for Western education to permeate the bureaucracy and the army.

    During Vajiravudh's reign, he modernized Siamball even more, making Bangkokball a hub of commerce and trade. He also participated in World War I as a member of the allied powers, and changed Siamball's flag to this And later to this .

    Revolution and the end of absolute rule (1925 - 1932)

    When Rama VI died suddenly in 1925, aged only 44, the monarchy was in a weakened state. He was succeeded by his younger brother Prajadhipok.

    Unprepared for his new responsibilities, all Prajadhipok had in his favour was a lively intelligence, a charming diplomacy in his dealings with others, modesty and industrious willingness to learn, and the somewhat tarnished, but still potent, magic of the crown.

    Unlike his predecessor, the king diligently read virtually all state papers that came his way, from ministerial submissions to petitions by citizens. Within half a year only three of Vajiravudh's twelve ministers stayed on, the rest having been replaced by members of the royal family.

    On the one hand, these appointments brought back men of talent and experience, on the other, it signaled a return to royal oligarchy. The king obviously wanted to demonstrate a clear break with the discredited sixth reign, and the choice of men to fill the top positions appeared to be guided largely by a wish to restore a Chulalongkorn-type government.

    In 1932 Siamball changed its name from Siam to Thailandball, and replaced its absolute monarchy with a constitutional monarchy after a coup d'état.

    Khana Ratsadon (1932 - 1938)

    Under the new government known as Khana Ratsadon, or, the People's Party, Thailandball faced civil war. The government faced the threat of communism and another coup d'état occurred, replacing the government with a new, more conservative one.

    The new government cracked down on royalists and took much more aggressive steps to carry out some important reforms. The currency went off the gold standard, allowing trade to recover. Expenditures on education were increased four-fold, thereby significantly raising the literacy rate. Elected local and provincial governments were introduced, and in November 1937 democratic development was brought forward when direct elections were held for the national assembly, although political parties were still not allowed.

    World War II

    During the first bit of WW2, Thailandball stayed neutral until the fall of Franceball in July 1940. In January 1941, Thailandball joined the war half - prepared, but gained some land in French Indochinaball until December 1941 where Thailandball got raped by Japanball but somehow still survived.


    In mid - 1942, Thailandball gained some territories from British Burmaball and British Malayaball, as well as Kingdom of Luang Phrabangball and French Cambodiaball. Thailandball fought bravely with Empire of Japanball until August 1945 when it surrendered and Thailandball decided to surrender, ending the 4 years of war. Later in 1947, Thailandball was forced to give the territories claimed in WW2 back to the Alliedballs and also ending 15 year rule of Khana Ratsadon.

    Modern Thailand

    In June 1946, young King Ananda was found dead under mysterious circumstances. His younger brother Bhumibol Adulyadej ascended to the throne. Thailandball joined the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) to become an active ally of the United States in 1954. Thailand underwent a coup in 1957, which removed Khana Ratsadon from politics. After USAball joined the Vietnam War in 1961, there was a secret agreement wherein USAball promised to defend Thailandball from communism.

    The 1997 Asian financial crisis originated in Thailand and ended the country's 40 years of uninterrupted economic growth, causing Thailandball to take an IMF loan. The populist Thai Rak Thai party governed from 2001 until 2006. His policies were successful in reducing rural poverty and initiated universal healthcare in the country.

    An insurgency escalated in its southern clay starting from 2004. The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami destroyed part Thailandball's southern clay. Thailand faced a coup d'état in 2006. The junta installed a military government which lasted a year.

    In 2014 it underwent a coup d'état , and continued to have a military junta to this day... Today, Thailandball is a developing countryball. It cannot into nuke yet but it can into space and submarine (it's really proud of its 3 new subs from Chinaball). In June and July 2018, it had a cave rescue, in which 12 boys and their football coach got stuck in the Tham Luang cave network. This brought international help from many countries.

    In late-2020, Thailandball starts to hate Monarchism and decides to protest against its government. Still, it cannot into remove its gov't because his monarchy has been the dominant government since ancient times.

    Its protests were triggered by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and enforcement of the lockdown, which brought forward unprecedented demands to reform the monarchy and the highest sense of republicanism in the country.
