Thailand, known until 1932 as the Kingdom of Siam, is one of the most permanent monarchs in the hemisphere and the only south-east Asia country that has never seen colonisation in Europe. However, since the 1932 reforms, Thailand's 76 counties have gone through decade-long unstable times, with the army trying 19 in 80 years, 12 of which have been a success.
Thailand's armed forces took back full command of a deep split in May 2014 after Yingluck Shinawatra, PM, and nine cabintainers were removed from the country's constitutional court. The National Legislative Assembly appointed General Prayuth Chan-ocha Premier and sealed the purchase of almost total force by the armed forces until August 2014.

Thailand's administration is a founder member of ASEAN, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, a politically and economically oriented alliance that aims to accelerate the pace of global economy and inequalities.
