Located in South East Asia, bordered by China, Thailand, Laos, India and Bangladesh, Myanmar is also sometimes known by the name Burma. While Myanmar purports to be a democratic presidential republic, it has been under effective military control since the coup of 1962, with elections showing few signs of being free or fair and with controls on opposition activity being only recently slightly relaxed. The human rights situation has been among the world's worst, with the use of child soldiers, abuse of children, trafficking and forced labour, political repression, extreme abuses by government forces and accusations of genocide.
