The Kampuchean War, also known as the Second Cambodian War, and in Kampuchea as the Independence War was a conflict in Cambodia. The war was fought by Siam and Vietnam against Democratic Kampuchea. Siam and Vietnam were supported by Britain and Japan; Kampuchea was supported by Korea (formerly known as North Korea) and other communist allies.

Tension originated from the creation of Kampuchea in Vietnamese territory on April 17 2020. It was believed that North Korea had a part in the creation of Kampuchea which was later found true as a video surfaced of the creation of Kampuchea where the North Korean leader was spotted. The war officially began on 6 May 2020 due to Kampuchea expanding into Siamese territory and the creation of landmines in Siamese towns in Cambodia. Japan and Britain announced their support of Siam and Vietnam the same day and one day after the declaration respectively.


Prelude to War

Siam and Vietnam agreed to split Cambodia between the two of them in March 2019. Later in that month, Siam fought a two hour war against Khmer and then another war against Cambodia in October 2019.

After the Siamese-Vietnamese War, it was agreed upon to return to the borders prior to the war meaning Siam and Vietnam would still keep their claims in Cambodia.

On April 17 2020, Kampuchea was founded and both Siam and Vietnam agreed with each other that if it were to expand then they would declare war on them.

On the 1 May 2020, the town of Pursat which lies in Siamese territory joined Kampuchea after refusing to join Siam since December 2019. The next day, Siam responded by creating the town of Chanthaburi where the old Khmer capital was located.

Siam confronted both Pursat and Kampuchea about their intentions and demanded they remove the town to avoid a conflict. Kampuchea refused to return the territory to Siam and land mines were placed around Siamese towns in Cambodia. This caused Siam and Vietnam to have justification for war against Kampuchea.

Diplomatic Actions

Between Siam and Pursat

Siam attempted to reach a deal with the town of Pursat during and after the Siamese-Vietnamese War, offering them all of Siamese Cambodia if they became an Autonomous State of Siam with their own government and foreign policy, this was refused after it was called not a fair deal by Pursat.

Between Siam and Kampuchea

The Impaler contacted Kampuchea about a border agreement in May after Pursat was invited to Kampuchea. An agreement was agreed by The Impaler but refused by Fluxify as Pursat was considered Siamese territory. This led to disagreements between the two and the eventual beginning of the war.

Declaration of War

On 6 May 2020, Siam and Vietnam announced their war against Kampuchea, calling them a rebel nation. Soon after the declaration, majority of the Kampuchean land mines were disarmed and taken by Siamese soldiers.

International Response

Before the war, Stockholm told Siam and Vietnam to back down or it would erupt into a large scale conflict and they do not want to get involved. Siam responded to Stockholm telling them not support rebel nations if they weren't interested in getting involved.

Japan declared war the same day as both Siam and Vietnam are allies of it, and also as Vietnam is apart of the Japanese Empire.

On 7 May 2020, Britain officially announced their support of Siam and Vietnam by declaring war on Kampuchea due to Siam being a member of the Commonwealth of Nations.

On 30 May 2020, Siam, Vietnam and Majapahit formed the Pact of Coral thus bringing Majapahit into the war on the Siamese and Vietnamese side.

On 1 June 2020, the Antarctic Coast announced their declaration of war on Kampuchea.

On the 28th of June, with the breakup of the Japanese Home Islands into separate nations, Vietnam and Borneo joined the Imperial Japanese Empire bringing Imperial Japan into the war against Kampuchea.


At the beginning of the war, there was not many battles occuring. Siam claimed that Kampuchean players do not stay on long enough to see combat, meanwhile Kampuchea claimed Siam was inactive. Battles started to occur at the end of May where Siam commenced both the Skirmish of Phnom Penh and the Skirmish of Pursat with both sides claiming victory in the battles.

In June, battles started to occur every week such as Battle of Bangkok, Battle of Pursat, and Second Battle of Pursat with Siam and Vietnam gaining support from the Commonwealth and the Japanese Empire.

Indochinese Victory and Aftermath

After the unification of Siam and Vietnam to form Indochina, on July 5, a referendum was held in Kampuchea on whether or not Kampuchea should join Indochina, as a result, everyone unanimously voted “Yes”. On July 7, the Democratic Kampuchea ceased to exist and the Communist Party of Kampuchea announced its dissolution. The integration of all Kampuchean cities ended on July 8.
