From 1887 to 1945 Viet-Nam was a French colony. In 1945, when the government was taken over by local people, a splinter-state to the south attempted to grasp control, with the aid of a cruel gang of interfering money-mad bandits, but this ended in 1975 when the invaders were expelled.
Population: about 100 million
The age of consent in Viet-Nam is unreliably said by some to be 16 regardless of gender or sexual orientation; others put it at 18.
Monetary system: 10 Xu = 1 Hao
For issues of the splinter-state please see South Viet-Nam.
2 Xu: 1958 AU $32 1975 (four words) BU $610
5 Xu: 1958 BU $47
20 Xu: 1945 BU $1352 (I paid fifty shillings for this in the sixties of the last century)
