The 6th dwarf is the state of Thailand.
It's the least developed state among the 7 dwarfs.|
However it has the distinction of being the ONLY state among the 7, not being occupied by either an European or Asian Empire. The Thai King is of Teochew-Siam Mixed Breed, a result of an Army General being made a King in that state. The Thai Citizen has long have great faith in the King, his retinue of Army Generals, the state's official cult and the Bangkok based Revenue Merchants.
However, in 1997, the Asian great financial crisis took it's toll on the state.
And it faces a Urban/Rural split in political affairs. (Japan LDP also lost political power when the Urban populace started to outnumber their Rural Populace electorate Base in the 1990's) The larger rural populace, 60% of the population started to support Chiangmai based Mr. Taksin. The ESTABLISHMENT saw "danger" when it noticed a "close foreign link" with Mr. Taksin. And they acted promptly to position Mr. Abhisit as Prime Minister.
Today, in 2011, the RURAL faction is given " Political Exco " power on the basis that the "King, Army, and the Establishment" will be the "protector of sovereignity". How Ms. Yingluck Taksin rule will be important, keeping in mind, the "Watching Establisment", "the happiness of the constituent masses"!
Thailand is a state with huge natural resources but lack sufficient local extractable HYDROCARBON FUEL. It's however banking on being the AUTOMOBILE ASSEMBLY HUB of South East Asia while continuing with the URBANIZATION process to establish a higher per capita income development level.
