Thailand is a Asian country that worships Buddhism.

It is a kingdom in Southeast Asia and a parliamentary democracy (similar to the one in the UK). Thailand has never been colonized.

General censorship[]

As noted in the Constitution of Thailand, anything that denigrates the Thai monarchy is strictly prohibited. Thailand's lèse-majesté law is known to be one of the harshest in the world for a democracy. Each count of lèse-majesté anywhere in Thailand has the equivalent of a prison sentence of up to 15 years.

Internet censorship[]

Thailand censors any website that insults the monarchy (which includes any criticism of a member of the royal family), and Thailand censors any website that has pornographic material.

  • In 2008, more than 4,800 webpages deemed insulting to Thailand's royal family were blocked. In December 2010, nearly 60,000 websites had been banned for alleged insults against Bhumibol. In 2011, the number increased to 70,000.
  • Royalist Marketplace was blocked by Facebook from users in Thailand because the group was critical of the monarchy.

Books censorship[]

Video Games censorship[]

The Thai military junta banned the game Tropico 5, as the military government thought it might affect peace and order.
