Ho Chi Minh City is in the state of Vietnam.
Ho Chi Minh City is the economic powerhouse in Vietnam. It is in the southern part of Vietnam and is where the foreign corporations have established their HQ and facilities in Vietnam. The only city in Vietnam that is "Westernized", including corporate towers and shopping malls full of luxury goods. Ho Chi Minh City with its influential ethnic Chinese community favors seceding from Vietnam so that they can full-throttle participate in capitalism. The fact that the communist government persecutes Vietnam's Chinese minority contributes to those desires.
