Bo Sinh (Kuehongese: 巴生 Bơ Sinh) (location), sometimes spelt Bosinh, is a state in Kuehong on the Muinon Peninsula. Bo Sinh has land borders with the Kuehongese states of Chienh Linh to the southwest, Phuong Lam to the southeast and shares an international boundary with Fayaan to the north. The State of Vang Ngat is an island just off the coast of the state. Kiet Tai is the state capital, the economic centre of the state and the seat of the state government. Other major towns include Bo Hat, Can Lai and Sam Bang.

Bo Sinh was the centre of the ancient Kingdom of Bo, which was established in the 9th century BC by a Kue clan Bùi. The Kingdom of Bo rapidly expanded and became a prominent state on the peninsula and resisted efforts to join the new Kue state of Mui in the 4th century AD. Bo Sinh subsequently joined the new Kue state as an administrative province under the Noi Dynasty when the Orinicians withdrew its control over the area. Bo Sinh briefly split into two - Northern Bo and Southern Bo - during the 5th to 7th centuries AD, but reunified when Northern Bo later became subdued by Southern Bo with help of the Neegs. Bo was later retaken by the La Kingdom which formed the new Kue Kingdom and continues to be a province of the Kue Kingdom and later the Bai Territory of Muinon.

Under colonisation, part of northern Bo Sinh was forced to be ceded to the XX, which was gaining more control of what will be today's Fayaan, and later Vang Ngat Island was handed over to the Ingerish. Though never colonised, Bo Sinh was heavily influenced by the Ulethan powers, with Ingerish and XX forces competing over the tin and (later) iron industry on the state and the construction of a new rail and road network in the state. Under Democratic Kuehong, Bo Sinh was infamous for having a large number of labour camps in a drive to promote the agriculture industry under the Nhảy Tuyệt Vời policy. It also had a high number of concentration camps under the communist rule during the mass purges conducted in the 50s. The state was also a key base by Democratic Kuehong in attacking neighbouring Fayaan under the Sự Đối Đầu movement.

Bo Sinh has abundant natural resources, and its economy is strongly export-oriented. Its primary exports include oil, gas, timber and palm oil. Its other major industries are agriculture and ecotourism.

Ti Lao

Ti Lao Prefecture (Kuehongese: 省庇劳 Tỉnh Tí Lạo) is a prefecture in Bo Sinh, Kuehong. Despite the name, the town of Ti Lao is not in the prefecture. The prefecture is one of the few prefectures only made up of island(s), the five islands being Doi Ho (代瑚 Đời Hồ) (the largest), Van Lac (文洛 Văn Lạc), Bac Kieu (培桥 Bụi Kiều), Luong Hau Tru (梁后宙 Lương Hậu Trụ) and Cua Bo (固坡 Cúa Bờ).

The islands were inhabited by a Kue tribe who were mainly fishermen since 2000BC, then later came under the Kingdom of Bo. The islands were technically part of Ingerish Vang Ngat though largely administered by the Bai and the natives themselves. The islands were then part of the State of Bo Sinh after independence, with the village of Ti Lao then part of the prefecture. In 1967, the expansion of Ti Lao saw the town being ceded to Kham Mo, and the prefecture then became confined to just the five islands.

The prefecture remains largely undeveloped, though the islands see recent developments such as the construction of paved roads since 2001 and a new navy base was created in Loang Hau Tru. The islands are getting increasingly popular as a tourist destination, with around 2000 visitors daily. The islands remained connected by ferry, with Van Lac the only island connected by road to the mainland.

Kue Kingdoms and Bai colonisation

Ulethan arrival and trade

During the 17th century, Ingerish traders have arrived and became increasingly active in Bo Sinh. Due to the alliance between Ingerland and Bo Sinh, the Ingerish traders have free rein and advantages over the resources in the region. In 1661, Arthur Brooke, an officer of the Ingerish Ardentic Company, managed to negotiate an agreement with the Bai authorities to allow him to set up trading posts in Kiet Tai (then just a minor fishing village) and Vang Ngat. In 1673, however, as the new governor of Basheng Wu Zhaohao 吴赵豪 was worried about the Ingerish takeover of 'key areas of the peninsula', tried to negotiate a new agreement with the Ingerish to allow Bai to have more control over the Ingerish outposts. When that failed, he tried to threaten the Ingerish in an attempt to drive them out. In a show of force, the Ingerish then invaded Vang Ngat Island in 1696, forcing the Bai governor to revert his stance and continue allowing free trade in the area.
