The name "Laoland" makes more sense.
Actually, the term LAOS is a modern French derivative used exclusively in the Western world to satisfy their invented name-place association.

Same same LAOTIAN [whatever the fuck that is]

Even the good people of the country and broader Asian region don't understand what these descriptive terms are and aren't used amongst their own......that is, unless the odd handful have had Western influence/education.

How about Lao.

ເມືອງລາວ
ປະເທດລາວ
geography and a war or 2 also played a part but correct me if I'm wrong but I think most of issan historicly was part of Lao ? The cheeses eating surrender monkeys declalared the Mekong the border marker?
