Myanmar, known for most of its history in the West as Burma, is a country in Asia bordered by [[Bangladesh Genealogy|Bangladesh]], [[China Genealogy|China]], [[India Genealogy|India]], [[Laos Genealogy|Laos]], and [[Thailand Genealogy|Thailand]]. It was formerly ruled by [[England Genealogy|Great Britain]]. The official language is Burmese.<ref>Wikipedia contributors, "Myanmar," in ''Wikipedia: the Free Encyclopedia,'' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myanmar, accessed 25 April 2016.</ref>
  
The British granted independence to Burma (now known as Myanmar) in 1947. Aung San, who was ostensibly to have been the new leader, was assassinated the same year, and his colleague Thankin Nu became president. Thankin Nu stayed in power only briefly, asking General Ne Win to assume control as soon as the first signs of civil unrest erupted in 1958. Since 1988, the military government has made repeated gestures toward democratic government, although they have in fact taken no real steps in that direction.
