Cambodia is located on the southern part of the Indo-China peninsula in Southeast Asia. A former French colony, it was ruled for many years by Khmer Rouge communists.
With a population of 15.5 million people, Cambodia is led by Prime Minister Hun Sen, who has been in power in the capital Phnom Penh for more than 25 years.
Prime Minister Hun Sen will maintain his decades-long grip on power after an election dubbed a "sham." The main opposition was banned from the election, all but ensuring a large victory for the incumbent.
