Introduction

The Socialist Republic of Vietnam is a nation located on the Indochinese Peninsula. Since the country is situated in Southeast Asia, it is also considered to be in the group of countries from the East Asia and Pacific group. The capital city in Vietnam is Hanoi. Interestingly, its largest city is Ho Chi Minh. Because of its small size and large population, it is an incredibly densely populated nation.

Economy

After the unification of North and South Vietnam, the country noticed an incredibly fast growth that was one of the fastest and largest in the entire world. Since 2010, the GDP of Vietnam has increased from $370 billion to $810 billion, which is an approximate 120% growth of the GDP. 

Another important thing to note is the GDP per capita. It is almost $8,400. Sadly, because of the large population, it is way below the average one can see in the East Asia and Pacific (the average GDP per capita is $18,485). 

Population

With 96 million Vietnamese living in the country, it is the fifth most populated country. However, due to its small size, the density is very large (30th in the rankings). It is almost 300 people per square kilometer.
