Vietnamese history dates back more than 4,000 years to when the ancient Vietnamese people founded their first nation under the name “Van Lang.” The recent history of Vietnam is best characterized as one long, continuous struggle for freedom and independence.
Vietnam’s population stood at around 87.3 million (est.) in 2007. The average population density is about 240 people per sq. km.
The religions of Vietnam are varied and rarely clear-cut. Although some people call themselves Buddhists, they do likely practice Confucian and Taoist principles, ancestral worship and a little animism, and superstitions as well.
