THEY NEVER GOT THAILAND
 
— Bill Wurtz

Thailandball, officially known as The Republic Kingdom of Thighland or Tightland Thailand (formerly Siamball), is gay a countryball at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia. He is the world's 51st-largest country. It is the 20th-most-populous country in the world, with around 69.04 million people. The capital and largest city is Bangkok. Thailand sits beside Cambodia-icon.png Cambodiaball, Laos-icon.png Laosball, Myanmar-icon.png Myanmarball, and Malaysia-icon.png 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. He is also one of the founding members of ASEAN-icon.png ASEANball. Thailand also has the longest city name who is another name of Bangkok-icon.png Bangkokball, Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasitball (167 letters).

History

1-icon.png Ancient Thailand (Pre-10th Century) 1-icon.png

Thailandball is a descendant of Tai-Kadai speaking 1-icon.png 1balls. Similar to other regions in Southeast Asia, Thailand was heavily influenced by the culture and religions of India-icon.png Indiaball, starting with the Kingdom of Funan-icon.png 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 1-icon.png Austroasiatic-speaking and 7-icon.png 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 Dvaravati-icon.png Dvaravatiball, Srivijaya-icon.png Srivijayaball and the Khmer Empire-icon.png Khmer Empireball, and later by the south Indian Pallavaball and north Indian Gupta-icon.png Guptaball.

1-icon.png Classical Thailand (10th - 13th Century) Khmer Empire-icon.png

The 1-icon.png Taiballs from the north gradually settled in the Chao Phraya valley from the tenth century onwards, in lands of Dvaravati-icon.png Dvaravatiball, assimilating the earlier 1-icon.png Austroasiatic Monballs and Khmer Empire-icon.png Khmerballs, as well as coming into contact with the Khmer Empire-icon.png Khmer Empireball.

There were many civilizations during this age, where the 1-icon.png Taiballs set up many civilizations, or 'mandalas'. Several mandalas included 1-icon.png Lavo Kingdomball, 1-icon.png Nakhon Si Thammarat Kingdomball, and so on.

King-icon.png Sukhothai and the Founding of the Thai Alphabet (1238 - 1438) 1-icon.png

Many Thai city-states gradually became independent of the weakened Khmer Empire-icon.png Khmer Empireball. One such state was 1-icon.png Sukhothaiball. This all began when two friends, Pho Khun Bangklanghao and Pho Khun Pha Mueang revolted against the Khmer Empire-icon.png Khmer governor of Sukhothaiball. Bangklanghao ruled 1-icon.png Sukhothaiball as 1-icon.png 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, 1-icon.png Sukhothaiball covered the entire upper valley of the Chao Phraya River.

Under the rule of Pho Khun Ramkamhaeng , 1-icon.png Sukhothaiball expanded his clay into the south and the north. Under Ramkamhaeng, Sukhothaiball was introduced to Theravada-icon.png Theravadaball and Theravada-icon.png 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.

Red-icon.png Lanna-icon.png Ayutthaya's Rule, and the first Farangs! (1438 - 1767) Portuguese Empire-icon.png

Thailandball was born as a small clay called Siam-icon.png Siamball in 1351, his capitalball was Red-icon.png Ayutthayaball (now a province of Thailandball). In 1540 he expanded his clay by conquering Khmer Empire-icon.png Khmerball, the weak brothers Kingdom of Laos-icon.png Laosball, Lanna-icon.png Lannaball, some southern part of 1-icon.png Chinaball and some northern part of modern day-Malaysia-icon.png Malaysiaball. He had a lot of conflicts with his neighbors like 1-icon.png Daivietball.

Following the conquest of Malacca Sultanate-icon.png Malaccaball, Portuguese Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball began making trade relations with Red-icon.png 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 Netherlands-icon.png Dutch, Kingdom of France-icon.png French, Japan-icon.png Japanese, Greece-icon.png Greek, Chinese-icon.png Chinese, Spanish-Empire-icon.png Spanish, England-icon.png English, and Denmark-icon.png Danish.

However, aside from that, Red-icon.png Ayutthayaball fought Konbaung-icon.png Burmaball (now Myanmar-icon.png Myanmarball) in many wars, and started to lose in its waning days.

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

Red-icon.png Siam is not yet lost! - the Thonburi Kingdom (1767 - 1782) Red-icon.png

Thonburi became the new capitalball of Siamball. Burmaball who was still in disorder quickly attacked again but this time he won. This was due to a rapid recovery and Red-icon.png Thonburiball was being led by a capable military leader, Taksin. Taksin then began to expand Red-icon.png Thonburiball's clay and expanded to western Khmer Empire-icon.png Cambodiaball, Kingdom of Laos-icon.png Laosball and northern Malacca Sultanate-icon.png Malayaball. However, during this short-lived Siamese state's existence, there was political trouble, and Taksin developed a religious mania, alienating the powerful Buddhism-icon.png Buddhist monkhood by claiming to be a sotapanna or divine figure. He was also in troubles with the court officials, Qing-icon.png Chinese merchants, and UK-icon.png France-icon.png Denmark-icon.png 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 Khmer Empire-icon.png 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 Khmer Empire-icon.png Cambodiaball and deposed Taksin, who was purportedly 'secretly executed' shortly after.

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

Later in 1782, Siam-icon.png Siamball moved capitalball to Bangkok-icon.png 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 Red-icon.png Ayutthayaball, promulgating new law codes, reinstating court ceremonies and imposing discipline on the Buddhism-icon.png Buddhist monkhood. The Konbaung-icon.png Burmese, seeing the disorder accompanying the overthrow of Taksin, invaded Siam-icon.png Siamball's clay again in 1785. Rama allowed them to occupy both the north and the south, but the Uparatvice-king, his brother, led the Siamese army into western Siam-icon.png Siamball and crushed the Burmese forces in a battle near Kanchanaburiball. This was the last major Burmese invasion of Siam-icon.png Siamball, although as late as 1802 Burmese forces had to be driven out of Lannaball. In 1792 the Siamese occupied Kingdom of Laos-icon.png Luang Prabangball and brought most of Kingdom of Laos-icon.png Laosball under indirect Siamese rule. Khmer Empire-icon.png Cambodiaball was also effectively ruled by Siam-icon.png Siamball. By the time of his death in 1809 Rama I had created a Siamese overlordship dominating an area considerably larger than modern Thailandball.

Siam-icon.png The Enlightenment of Siam (1851 - 1868) UK-icon.png

European colonial powers threatened him in the 19th and early 20th centuries, but Thailandball (then known as Siam-icon.png Siamball) survived as the only Southeast Asian state to avoid European colonial rule because the France-icon.png Franceball and the UK-icon.png 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 Siam-icon.png Siamball. The king himself and his entourages were actively UK-icon.png pro-British. This became evident in 1855 when a mission led by the Governor of British Hong Kong-icon.png Hong Kongball, Sir John Bowring, arrived in Bangkok-icon.png 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 UK-icon.png British subjects. Other UK-icon.png France-icon.png Denmark-icon.png Spain-icon.png Western powers soon demanded and got similar concessions.

The king came to believe that the real threat to Siam-icon.png Siamball came from the France-icon.png French, not the UK-icon.png British. The UK-icon.png British were interested in commercial advantage, the France-icon.png French in building a colonial empire. They occupied Saigonball in 1859, and 1867 established a protectorate over southern Dainam-icon.png Vietnamball and eastern Khmer Empire-icon.png Cambodiaball. Rama IV hoped that the UK-icon.png British would defend Siam-icon.png 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 UK-icon.png British saw Siam-icon.png Siamball as a useful buffer state between British Burma-icon.png British Burmaball and French Indochina-icon.png French Indochinaball.

Siam-icon.png Reform and Modernization - King Chulalongkorn's Reign (1868 - 1910) UK-icon.png France-icon.png Russian-Empire-icon.png

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 UK-icon.png 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 France-icon.png French authorities in French Indochina-icon.png Indochinaball used a minor border dispute to provoke a crisis. France-icon.png French gunboats appeared at Bangkok-icon.png Bangkokball and demanded the cession of Kingdom of Laos-icon.png Lao territories east of the Mekong. The king appealed to the UK-icon.png British, but the UK-icon.png British minister told the king to settle on whatever terms he could get. The king had no choice but to comply. UK-icon.png UKball's only gesture was an agreement with France-icon.png Franceball guaranteeing the integrity of the rest of Siam-icon.png Siamball. In exchange, Siam-icon.png Siamball had to give up its claim to the Tai-speaking Shan region of northeastern British Burma-icon.png Burmaball to the UK-icon.png British.

The France-icon.png French, however, continued to pressure Siam-icon.png Siamball, and in 1906–1907 they manufactured another crisis. This time Siam-icon.png Siamball had to concede France-icon.png French control of territory on the west bank of the Mekong opposite Laos-icon (division).png Luang Prabangball and around Laos-icon (division).png Champasakball in southern Kingdom of Laos-icon.png Laosball, as well as western Khmer Empire-icon.png Cambodiaball. The UK-icon.png British interceded to prevent more French pressure on Siam-icon.png Siamball, but their price, in 1909 was the acceptance of UK-icon.png 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, centralised 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 levys and labour service 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, Siam-icon.png 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 anglicised Edwardian gentleman. Indeed, one of Siam-icon.png 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 Siam-icon.png 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 Siam-icon.png Siamball's flag to this Thailand-icon.png .

Military-icon.png Revolution and the end of absolute rule (1925 - 1932) Thailand-icon.png

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.

The legacy that Prajadhipok received from his elder brother were problems of the sort that had become chronic in the Sixth Reign. The most urgent of these was the economy: the finances of the state were in chaos, the budget heavily in deficit, and the royal accounts a nightmare of debts and questionable transactions. That the rest of the world was deep in the Great Depression following World War I did not help the situation either.

In 1932 Siam-icon.png Siamball changed his name from Siam to Thailand-icon.png Thailandball, and replaced his absolute monarchy with a constitutional monarchy after a coup d'état.

Asian Dictator-icon.png Khana Ratsadon (1932 - 1938) Thailand-icon.png

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

Modern Thailand

In 2014 he underwent a coup d'état , and continued to have a military junta to this day... Today, Thailandball is a developing countryball. He cannot into nuke yet but he can into space and submarine (he's really proud of his 3 new subs from China-icon.png Chinaball). modern day thailand is well knowed because of prostitution,around 500.000 women on thailand work as prostitutes,because this became something cultural and also many thai woman can't sustain themselves.

Recently, in June and July 2018, he 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.


Between February 8, 2020, 15:30 and February 9, 2020 09:13, a mass shooting happened in Nakhon Ratchasimaball when a person named Jakrapanth Thomma took hostages and murdered 29 people, injured 58 people, and then killed himself.



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

He is very proud of himself, his history and his language. Thailand of lovings cold weather, he wishes one day he will can into snow but Thailand cannot into snow.
