The Unified State of Indochina was a state formed by the union of North and South Indochina in the immediate aftermath of the Indo-China War.
Initially, the occupation of the Northern half of the nation was aided by the United States, but the Americans gradually pulled out as the south gained strength. The capital, formerly Saigon, was moved to Phnom Penh unofficially, and from the end of the war onwards formed the managerial hub of the nation. With economic support from Western nations, the Indochinese quickly rebuilt their country to it's former glory.
But in 1968, Chinese-backed revolts led to the overthrow of the Thai king and the Burmese president and the integration of Communist leaders in both countries. The Indochinese government, which acted more over the will of it's Western allies, eventually began to draw up plans of an Invasion of the two countries. In 1969, the Indochinese poured into Thailand to return the overthrown king into power. The Communist forces quickly mobilized against the Indochinese, but quickly fell apart because of the country's advanced technology.
By winter of 1969, the war was over and the democratic and constitutional monarchies of Thailand and Burma were once again in power, and the former Communist leaders had disappeared without a trace into the jungles of Southeast Asia. Indochina stayed in the two countries, along with a United Nations Peacekeeping force, until the UN came into an agreement that the two countries were now stable enough to be on there own in 1970. By summer of 1970, the Indochinese army had fully pulled out of Thailand and Burma.
When the resource wars broke out many countries in Asia were concerned over the recent disrupt in China as the country was suffering high energy costs, gas prices, and civil unrest and begun a massive military campaign by conquering Korea and Japan and annexing them making them colonies and taking away their rights, freedom, independence, and soon their names as citizens. Indochina at the time began to rely on US aid to strengthen its military so they could defend themselves against a possible communist invasion and were right when in the Summer of 2050 troops from China had began to invade Indochina and so began the "Red Summer." Before the invasion Unified State of Indochina had sent troops to Japan as a means of civil defense against invading forces and when Japan fell they were called back imediatly following the invasion of their home country. By the 2060's Indochina was a battleground full of constant insurgents fighting for their nation's independence but were taken over. Indochina had redeclared sovereignty in 2074 but only for a short 3 years before the Great War
