An extract on #thailand

Thailand is a constitutional monarchy and has switched between parliamentary democracy and military junta for decades, the latest coup being in May 2014 by the National Council for Peace and Order. Its capital and most populous city is Bangkok. It is bordered to the north by Myanmar and Laos, to the east by Laos and Cambodia, to the south by the Gulf of Thailand and Malaysia, and to the west by the Andaman Sea and the southern extremity of Myanmar. Its maritime boundaries include Vietnam in the Gulf of Thailand to the southeast, and Indonesia and India on the Andaman Sea to the southwest. The Thai economy is the world's 20th largest by GDP at PPP and the 27th largest by nominal GDP. It became a newly industrialised country and a major exporter in the 1990s. Manufacturing, agriculture, and tourism are leading sectors of the economy. It is considered a middle power in the region and around the world.

Thailand ( TY-land or TY-lnd; Thai: , rtgs: Prathet Thai, pronounced [pratt taj]), officially the Kingdom of Thailand (Thai: , rtgs: Ratcha-anachak Thai [rttaanatk taj]), formerly known as Siam (Thai: , rtgs: Sayam [sajm]), is a country at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Southeast Asia.

The country has always been called Mueang Thai by its citizens. By outsiders prior to 1949, it was usually known by the exonym Siam (Thai: rtgs: Sayam, pronounced [sajm], also spelled Siem, Sym, or Syma). The word Siam has been identified with the Sanskrit yma (, meaning "dark" or "brown"). The names Shan and A-hom seem to be variants of the same word. The word yma is possibly not its origin, but a learned and artificial distortion. Another theory is the name derives from Chinese: "Ayutthaya emerged as a dominant centre in the late fourteenth century. The Chinese called this region Xian, which the Portuguese converted into Siam." (Baker and Phongpaichit, A History of Thailand, 8) A further possibility is that Mon-speaking peoples migrating south called themselves 'syem' as do the autochthonous Mon-Khmer-speaking inhabitants of the Malay Peninsula. The signature of King Mongkut (r. 18511868) reads SPPM (Somdet Phra Poramenthra Maha) Mongkut King of the Siamese, giving the name "Siam" official status until 24 June 1939 when it was changed to Thailand. Thailand was renamed to Siam from 1946 to 1948, after which it again reverted to Thailand.

According to George Cds, the word Thai () means "free man" in the Thai language, "differentiating the Thai from the natives encompassed in Thai society as serfs." A famous Thai scholar argued that Thai () simply means "people" or "human being", since his investigation shows that in some rural areas the word "Thai" was used instead of the usual Thai word "khon" () for people. While Thai people will often refer to their country using the polite form prathet Thai (Thai: ), they most commonly use the more colloquial term mueang Thai (Thai: ) or simply Thai, the word mueang, archaically a city-state, commonly used to refer to a city or town as the centre of a region. Ratcha Anachak Thai (Thai: ) means "kingdom of Thailand" or "kingdom of Thai". Etymologically, its components are: ratcha (Sanskrit raja "king, royal, realm") ; -ana- (Pali "authority, command, power", itself from an Old Indo-Aryan form j of the same meaning) -chak (from Sanskrit cakra- "wheel", a symbol of power and rule). The Thai National Anthem (Thai: ), written by Luang Saranupraphan during the extremely patriotic 1930s, refers to the Thai nation as: prathet Thai (Thai: ). The first line of the national anthem is: prathet thai ruam lueat nuea chat chuea thai (Thai: ), "Thailand is the unity of Thai flesh and blood."
