Cambodia, located in Southeast Asia, has a complex history marked by the Khmer Empire’s ancient glory and the tragic period of the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s. Phnom Penh is the capital and largest city. Cambodia operates as a constitutional monarchy with King Norodom Sihamoni as the ceremonial head of state and a parliamentary system led by Prime Minister Hun Sen, who has been in power since 1985. The political landscape is dominated by the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), which holds a significant majority in the National Assembly. The country has faced challenges related to political stability, human rights concerns, and allegations of authoritarianism. The opposition, particularly the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), faced restrictions and legal challenges, leading to its dissolution in 2017. Cambodia’s economy has experienced robust growth, driven by industries such as textiles, tourism, and agriculture, but it grapples with issues like poverty, corruption, and environmental degradation. The nation has a rich cultural heritage, including the iconic Angkor Wat temple complex, and faces ongoing efforts for historical reckoning and justice regarding the Khmer Rouge era. Cambodia actively engages in regional organizations such as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and has diplomatic relations with various countries. Cambodia’s political and economic landscapes can evolve, so it is advisable to consult more recent sources for the latest information on the country’s overview and political dynamics beyond that date.
