The Republic of Korea (Korean: 대한민국/Daehan Minguk) is a country located in East Asia, covering the Korean Peninsula.

History

Korea was established in 1945, with the liberation from Japan. On 25 June 1950, about five years later, it entered the Korean War and was split in two: South Korea, ally of the UCA, and North Korea, ally of the Soviet Union. At the end of the war, the two nations on the Peninsula agreed to merge.
