Best Answer

Vietnam is a communist country because the government controlls everything and they have a central economy. _____ North Vietnam was communist, South Vietnam was not and did not want to be. That, in a nutshell, was what the Vietnam War was about. When all of the western countries pulled out of Vietnam, the North overran the South and both countries were reunified as Vietnam under a communist government based in Hanoi.
