FC: Thailand. by cheyanne sudatz :)

1: people Minorities of Thailand include the Chinese, Thai Malays, and the Laotian. Anything between 9% - 15% of Thailand's population is thought to be Sino-Thai . In the early 19th and 20th Century, Chinese immigrants came and settled down here. They married Thai women, took Thai names, most of them adopted Buddhism and learned Thai. Today, the people of Thailand share a rich ethic diversity - mainly of Mon, Khmer, Tai, Chinese, Malay, Laotian, and Indian stock - with the result that there is no typically Thai physiognomy or physique. There are petite Thais, statuesque Thai, round faced Thais, dark-skinned Thais, and light-skinned Thais.

2: Climate Thailand can best be described as tropical and humid for the majority of the country during most of the year. The area of Thailand north of Bangkok has a climate determined by three seasons whilst the southern peninsular region of Thailand has only two. In northern Thailand the seasons are clearly defined. Between November and May the weather is mostly dry, however this is broken up into the periods November to February and March to May. The later of these two periods has the higher relative temperatures as although the northeast monsoon does not directly effect the northern area of Thailand, it does cause cooling breezes from November to February.

3: Geography The Thailand geography comprises of varied and attractive landscape features. Thailand is a Southeast Asian country. This country is precisely located on the southeastern part of Burma, sharing its borders with the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. The total area of Thailand occupies an area of 514,000 square kilometers. Out of this the total land area covers 511,770 square kilometers and the water covered area is 2230 square kilometers. The geography of Thailand attract many tourists from different parts of the world.

4: leaders The Prime Minister of Thailand is the Head of Government of the Kingdom of Thailand.

The post of Prime Minister has existed since 1932, after a bloodless revolution, forced the absolutist King Prajadhipok to grant for the people of Siam their first constitution. Under the newly established constitutional monarchy, the first Prime Minister of Siam was Phraya Manopakorn Nititada. At first, the office was called the President of the People’s Committee, it was later changed to Prime Minister of Siam when the King deemed it too communistic Throughout the post’s existence it has mostly been occupied by military leaders from the Royal Thai Army, three holding the rank of Field Marshal and seven the rank of General. The current Prime Minister is Yingluck Shinawatra since 5 August 2011.

5: Goverment The Royal Thai Government (RTG)[1] or the Government of Thailand (Thai: ) is the unitary government of the Kingdom of Thailand. Thailand has been a constitutional monarchy under a parliamentary democracy system since 1932. The country has existed in some form since the 13th century, but the country emerged as a modern nation state after the foundation of the Chakri Dynasty and the city of Bangkok in 1782. The Revolution of 1932 brought an end to absolute monarchy and replaced it with a system of constitutional monarchy.
