This story takes place in a Parallel Universe. The separation point is when the six Amulets arrived on earth. This was about fifty years before the founding of the Chakri Dynasty in Thailand (6 April 1782).
Thanks to the presence of the Amulets, Thai kings had much more influence in the Karen and Shan states on their northern and western boarders between Siam and Myanmar (Burma). Consequently, the British eventually took over a much smaller Burma than in our universe, as the Karen and many of the Shan states were eventually joined to Thailand.
The French, though they took over much of southern (Lower) Lao (Laos), didn't acquire the Luang Phrabang and Black Thai kingdoms in the north of Laos. or what would later be called Upper or Thai Laos. This included all of the land west of the Mekong in what we know in our universe as Sainyabuli Province of Laos, but which in the Amulets Universe is known as Thailand's Lan Chang Province. Also included were all of Luang Phrabang, Houaphanh, Bokeo, Louang Namtha, Oudamxay and Phongsaly provinces.
The Amulets didn't allow the Thai Commissioners appointed by Kings Rama 3 through Rama 5 and the Senior Thai Army officials to make the mistakes with the Laotians that were made in our universe. The problem with the Ho Bandits was solved with Amulet intervention. Consequently in the 1880's King Oun Khan of Luang Phrabang and his people were very pleased to be under Thai protection and wanted nothing to do with the French, who they looked on as farong (foreigners) and in league with the Vietnamese, who they distrusted and hated. They were eventually joined to Greater Thailand.
The French also got a much smaller Cambodia, called Lower Cambodia. The Thai retained the lands there that they had ruled there for well over a hundred years. That area extended form the Gulf of Thailand in the west at Had Lek, just south of Trat overland through the coastal mountain range to the headwaters of the Stoeng Pouthisat River and then followed the river to Tonle Sap Lake, splitting Pouthisat Province. It included all of the land north of the Pouthisat River including Batdambung Province. After crossing the lake it included Siem Rep (Angkor Wat), Preah Vihear, Stoeng Treng, and Rotanah Kiri Provinces all the way to the border with Vietnam. This area was called Upper Cambodia.
In the south, on the peninsula, Muslims from the Malaysia Sultanates, the most troublesome of which had been ceded to Britain, found it difficult to cross the Thai border thanks to the Amulets. Those that persisted died mysteriously in the jungle. Those already there were strongly encouraged to be peaceful. All of these additions created a Kingdom nearly twice as large as the one in our universe.
This is also the Universe where JFK was NOT assassinated, and LBJ never became President. Kennedy pursued and won the war in Vietnam thanks in part to the U.S. and Thai Special Forces camps in that area of Cambodia that belonged to the Thais and bordered on Southern Laos. This cut off the Ho Chi Min trail in the Central Highlands before it reached vulnerable areas in South Vietnam. They were also aided, unknowingly, by the Amulets, who didn't appreciate the North Vietnamese at all. Consequently, Richard Nixon had a lot less trouble and only had mopping up actions in Vietnam to contend with. He was never impeached, and went on to complete his second term, so Gerald Ford never became President. However, they did still have to suffer through Jimmy Carter.
This then is the world that Bill Baker inhabits. Women are more accepted in the Thai version of the Buddhist religion and the Amulets still exert their power and wait for what they know is coming.
