Animal Stamp of Laos

Laos has about the same area as to Japanese Honshuan and is a socialist state in a Southeastern Asian only landlocked country. The first united national orchid sun kingdom is formed in the 14th century. French rule was strengthened, and it was admitted into French Indochina in 1899 after it was divided in the 18th century, and Thailand was governed. It passed through Japanese occupation and became independent after World War II partially as Laos kingdom in 1949 and got French approval in 1953 and completely became independent. It began a civil war and abolished monarchy in 1975 and shifted to the socialism system and became the Lao People's Democratic Republic afterwards.
