According to the BBC, Vietnam is a one-party communist state. This has been going on since 1975, when Soviet-backed northern troops defeated US-backed southern troops.
The first communist party in Vietnam was founded in 1930, and was called the Indochina Communist Party. Despite being a communist country, Blue Dragon Country has adopted several capitalist principles in recent decades.
Beginning with free market reforms in the 1980s and support from entrepreneurs, Vietnam has made Vietnam one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
The ideology of communism in Vietnam is based on Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh Thought. In the early post-1975 years, Marxism-Leninism specifically meant that the government and economy were strictly controlled from the center, while agriculture and factories were run collectively.
