The Kingdom of Hmongland is a landlocked country located in Southeast Asia. The kingdom was established in 1921 after the War of the Insane (Rog Paj Cai/Rog Phim Npab or Guerre de Fou). The Kingdom of Hmongland was founded by Pa Chay Vue (Paj Cai Vwj), after gaining independence he became known as King Pa Chay Vue. The Kingdom of Hmong land consists of Dien Bien, Phongsali, Sam Neua, Luang Prabang, Xieng Khouang, Oudomxai, Louang Namtha, Bokeo, and Sainyabuli provinces.
The War of the Insane (Rog Paj Cai/Rog Phim Npab or Guerre de Fou), was fought between nationalist Hmong and the French colonialist, along side with Lao locals, from 1918 to 1921. The Hmongs were lead by Pa Chay Vue, a Hmong nationalist, believed to have magical power. The Hmongs were equipped with their own flintlock guns and tree trunk made like cannon. The French on the other hand were equipped with more modernized weapons.
The Hmongs knew how to fight on their own home turfs. Unlike the French, most soldiers never set foot on mountainous and Hmong land regions. The Hmongs had the advantages; guerrilla warfare, populace support, and fighting on their own lands. The French had disadvantages; a conventional army fighting a guerrilla group, and WWII at home in France.
At the height of the war, 40,000 sq km of land was the war zone in northern Indochina. From Dien Bien Phu, Tonkin (Northern Vietnam) to Nam Ou, Luang Prabang, and from Muong Cha north of Vientiane to Sam Neua in Laos. The outcomes were a Hmong victory, Hmong independence, the French army withdrawal from all Hmong lands, and the Hmong-French Treaty.
WWII didn't have much affect on Hmongland in the late 30's and early 40's. Imperial Japan and Great Britain signed a treaty for Hmongland to be a buffer zone. King Pa Chay Vue agreed to have Japanese families and soldiers migrate into his country for those left around Southeast Asia after Imperial Japan's surrender in WWII.
The First Indochinese War also didn't affect much of Hmongland late 40's. After the Hmong's independence, the French never bothered with them. Only minor Vietnamese attack on some villages occurred but diplomatic between the Kingdom and Communist Vietnamese worked out.
The Second Indochina really affected Hmongland as a whole. This is when Vang Pao earned the rank of General. The Geneva Convention listed Hmongland and Laos to be neutral nations. But North Vietnam violated the Convention, China on the other hand didn't bother with both of the neutral nations. North Vietnam was at war with South Vietnam and the U.S. The Americans called for an alliance between Hmongland and the U.S. Americans wanted Hmongs to help fight North Vietnam from the north and the Americans would fight North Vietnam from the south. King Pa Chay Vue denied the call for alliance, but will only accept military aid from the U.S. U.S military officials agreed with this and sent weapons heavily to Hmongland. In may 1961, North Vietnam invaded Hmongland, for they wanted to control the Ho Chi Minh Trail to South Vietnam. The Hmongs didn't want North Vietnamese on Hmong soil. War between the two nations caused major casualties between both sides.
This is when the Hmong people were all united as a whole, or entirely Nationalist Hmong. Hmong man from China, Thailand, Burma, and northeastern North Vietnam traveled to fight. Hmongland had over 165,000 soldiers and the Royal Hmong Air Force was born. North Vietnamese had over 140,000 soldiers to fight but with no air force. At this time, the Royal Hmong Air Force only numbered 150 members and 60 aircraft, mostly T-28s. Lee Lue was the Hmong ace pilot in this war who flew over 5000 missions. But sadly he was shot down by an anti-aircraft fire and died on July 12, 1969. He was promoted to Major, and the motto was attributed to him and the rest of the Air Warriors "Fly till you die." This motto is still used for the Royal Hmong Air Force.
The results ended with Americans withdrawal and losing the war, North and South Vietnam were united, and North Vietnam troops withdrew from Hmongland. Peace was at hand between Vietnam and Hmongland, but the Hmong people always kept an eye on Vietnam.
After the Second Indochina War, minor conflicts occur on border disputes between Vietnam and Thailand. The Kingdom of Hmongland joined the United Nations in 1984.
