Cộng hòa Xã hội chủ nghĩa Việt Nam
|Leader||Unknown (possibly Trương Tấn Sang); occupied by Greater Korean Republic|
The Socialist Republic of Vietnam was a country located in Southeast Asia. Vietnam was briefly occupied by the Empire of Japan during World War II. After being liberated following Japan's defeat, Vietnam was split into two nations. In the 1960s and 1970s, the United States of America waged the Vietnam War to protect the Democratic South against the Communist North Vietnamese government during the Cold War, but was eventually forced to withdraw due to mounting losses and increasing lack of support for the war.
By the 21st century, Vietnam was intimidated into joining the Greater Korean Republic.
Despite the spreading of Korean annexation through at least some degree of military force, it was also mentioned that "representatives are expected to focus on trade talks between member nations as well as a decision on whether to allow Cambodia and Vietnam to join the Republic." It is also notable that despite Japan's previous brutal occupation of Vietnam and North Korea's similar political ideologies, Vietnam is the only nation of the six to later join the GKR. Regardless of economic needs factoring into this or not, Vietnam was, more or less forcibly, made part of the GKR in 2021.
In Homefront: The Voice of Freedom, Ben Walker encountered Nguyen Huu Giap, the unconventional leader of the original rebel group from Utah and a brilliant tactics expert from Vietnam whose great uncle was a Viet Cong general who fought the United States during the Vietnam War. When Vietnam joined the Korean alliance, numerous resistance fighters came to the United States to help the American Resistance. Despite Nguyen's tremendous aid to the Resistance, he is eventually killed by Korean forces on May 7, 2026, and Walker paid tribute to him in a Voice of Freedom broadcast.
It is likely that Vietnam has a guerrilla resistance group struggling to break the GKR's hold on their country, similar to the American Resistance.
