Vietnam has a communist government that has one party while other countries like the United States have two or more political parties. Vietnam is also one of the few remaining countries that relies on a communist government.

Even though Vietnam has a communist system, it does have a president, vice president and several ministers that help govern the area. In total, there are 175 active members that make up the Vietnamese government. These individuals are elected though many people speculate that the ballots are rigged. Over the years the people in charge of the country have been under more scrutiny because the country is not prosperous enough.
