China, uprisers and militarygroups in lightgreen
The Republic of China (Chinish: 中華民國; Chunghua Minkuo), called China (Chinish: 中國; Chungkuo, meaning "Middle Kingdom") but also Cathay, is a land in East Asia. The most befolkened land on Earth by far, China is a onehoodsstate republic under what it besoothes to be a parliamentarish democracy and, split into 34 Provinces (Chinish: 省; Shêng) and 12 Sunderly Steads (Chinish: 直轄市; Chihhsiashih), though the regering's hold over much of this bestands only in the mind of its leaders.

China has been the most-befolkened land and civilisation on earth for most of written and unwritten gesheede, and a followrighty Chinish Monarchy bestood for 2133 years until it was overthrown and orset by the Republic of China in the Revolution of 1912. The unworksome republicanish regerings unsteadied the ship of the state, kickstarted the Chinish Burghercrig, and helped the way for the Caserric of Japan to overfall in 1931, leading to the Twithe Chinish-Japanish Crig, which went on until 1953. Later on, China sought to behoove from chaos in Chousen and began the Third Chinish-Japanish Crig, which led to Japan drawing a "Sea of Cobalt and Glass" along the Chinish-Chousenish Marks in 1958. Forbrooking a few yeartens of inner steadiness and steady werthshiply growth, China has been shaken by a comeback of unsteadiness and criglordery since the death of the Chinish dictator Chingkuo Chiang in 1988.


China is a onehoodsstate and a presidentialish republic. The Groundlaw of 1928 splits the Chinish regering into five Yüan (院) or Hoves. The President of China (Chinish: 中國總統; Chungkuo Tsungtʻung) is the state- and regeringshead of China. As leader of the Executive Hove, he holds overcommand over the Stridecrafts of the Republic, fortreads the nation abroad, opens, closes, and uploosens the Chinish legislature, forkithes and becraftens laws put forth by the legislature, bodes crig, makes frith and alliances, and welcomes and benames bodeshippers. By law, the President must be gewaled once every four years and may stand for wale twice. The President is helped by a Behalfspresident (Chinish: 副總統; Fu Tsungtʻung) who the President benames and who heads the Cabinet of China in his name. The Presidentine now is Hsiaochang Chiang—the former President was her father, and the one before him her eldfather—while the Behalfspresident is Liuhsien Huo.

Lawmaking in China is done by two boughs: the Gemoot (Chinish: 立法院; Lifayüan, meaning "Lawmaking Hove") and the Senate (Chinish: 監察院; Chienchʻayüan; meaning "Controlling Hove"). The former is a lawmaking body of 759 seats, all benamed to their seats through a system of first-yond-the-line wales for four-years-long ambstimes, while the latter is a body of 178 "Senators" benamed to their ambights by the President. The Gemoot makes, takes away, and forothers laws, sets the budget and the gavel from which it is drawn, and becraftens fordrawings underwritten by and Fororderings made by the regering. It is led by the President of the Gemoot (Chinish: 立法院院長; Lifayüan Yüanchang), who is now Shufên Lung. The Senate meanwhile may hold the regering to answer and kick it from ambight if need be, as well as deal as an Upper Bough to gesets made by the Gemoot.

China has been under militaryregering and militarylaw since 1928, with the Needstand being lifted only three times, each time for no longer than five months, since that point. Quoth the so-called 'Foreovergo Bestimmings in Craft Throughout the Ongoing Uprising' China is a one-party dictatorship. The Groundlaw, as well as wales for the President and his bounding to only two ambstimes, has been put on hold, the Senate may not onclage the President, and the Gemoot is indeed more along the lines of the President's rubber stamp than any selfaughtening lawmaking body. All parties other than the Nationalistish Party of China (Chinish: 中國國民黨; Chungkuo Kuomintang) have been outlawed, and the President, as well as the Behalfspresident and the President of the Gemoot, are limbmen of this party.

China's ambsspeech is Chinish, better known by speechwittenshippers as Highchinish. This is spoken in most of China and by most Chinamen, but there are many other speeches spoken, some byspels being sundry tongues of Lowchinish, Chousenish, Mongolish, Thibetish, Russish, Persish, Indish, and Indochinish.


Chinish sagas say that the Hsia, grounded in 2070 BC, were the first Chinish dynasty; Western faucmen tosteven that the Shang—which in Chinish sagas orset by Hsia in 1600 BC—is where China's gesheede begins. Around this time, the Hanscript, in which China and some other Asianish lands write, is thought to have been onwicked. The Shang were orset by the Chou in 1060 BC, under whose rule the Chinish thinker Confucius and grounder of the Confuciansh school of thought was born. In later years, the King of Chou could not hold onto all of his lands and ordly regerers, governors, and criglords began misheeding him and coming to fights against each other and the centralregering. When Chou fell apart in 256 BC, China fell to Chankuo Shihtai or the Time of Criging Lands. This cycle of centralregering losing its hold and China splintering into bickering criglords until a strongman can yet again forone them is a trend that has withhauled time and time again in Chinish gesheede.

The Time of the Criging Lands ended in 221 BC when a man named Chʻin Shih Huang aovered or underwarped all of China and brought frith. He built the Greatwall in the north to thwart the oncoming Mongols and died before he could crown his kin as China's first Caserly Dynasty. The Han, China's first Caserly Dynasty, made Confucianism China's statesphilosophy and onwicked the Silkroad, binding China to Sogdiana, Persia, and the Levant. The Fall of the Han Dynasty in 220 YL was heralded by the Time of the Kingrics Three or Sankuo Shihtai, which ended in 266 YL with a sige by the Chin Dynasty. The Chin were followed in 581 YL by the Sui who brought in Buddhism to China. They were then followed in 618 YL by the Tʻang dynasty—who onwicked gunpowder, one of mankind's greatest orfindings—who were followed in 960 YL by the Sung. By the latter years of the Sung, China had splintered under manifold Criglords; the Mongols under their leader Genghis Khan finally broke through the Greatwall and stormed through China beginning in 1205. By 1279, when the Mongolish Aovering of China had ended, her befolking had nearly halved. Kublai Khan, Genghis Khan's eldson, split China from the Mongolish Riche by grounding Ta Yüan in 1279 YL. It was this China that the Venedish pathfinder Mark Paul besought in the 1300s.

Ta Yüan was overthrown by a man named Chu Yüanchang in 1368, grounding the Ming Dynasty. Under the Ming, China inwent a Golden Tidealter at first as the land grew rich and canst and culture was patronised. Amid an ongoing uprising against the Ming, a man named Li Tzŭchʻêng stormed Peking in 1644 and killed the last Ming Caser, but before he could crown himself the Manchuish took Peking and grounded the Chʻing Dynasty instead. As the Europish Riches began making their way into China—starting with Portingale buying off the haven of Macau, which it still holds, in 1557—the Chʻing laid the groundset of Haichin, meaning "locked land", to close themselves off from Europa. By the 19th Yearhundred and owing to late forthstrides in Europish technology, things forothered. England beat China in the Opiumcrigs of 1839–42 and 1856–60, taking Dufthaven, and Japan overfell twice in 1874 and 1894–95, taking Chousen and Formosa. A man besoothing to be Jesus Christ's brother threw the Rising of the Heavenly Kingdom in 1850–64, killing 30 million folk before he was put down. The biggest humiliation came in 1899 when the Chinish threw the Boxeruprising to kick Europish chapmen, sendlings, and inflow out of China: the Eight Foroned Lands utterly crushed this uprising, burned Peking down, and killed close to 2.5 million folk in foryielding. The dying lich of the Chʻing was put down on the First of January 1912 in a Revolution led by the Nationalistish Party of China's Yi-hsien Sun and the Republic of China was born.

The Republic was on shaky grounds from the moment of its birth: only three years later the twithe President of China crowned himself Caser and though he was made to step down next year, China splintered apart and generals of sundry dealths of the Chinish Heere grounded their own lordships, bringing about the First Criglord Tide. Finally, the Nationalistish Party of China, now led by Chiehshih Chiang in Canton, put down the criglords and foroned China in 1928. Japan overfell Manchuria in 1931 and Mainland China in 1938, kickstarting the gruesome Twithe Chinish-Japanish Crig. Japan was winning at first but a Russish Overfall of Manchuria made them pull all troops out to better fordeithe Chousen, thus letting Chiang 'win' in 1953. Five years later, Chiang fanded to help Chousen in an ongoing uprising against Japan, boding crig in 1958; in answer, Japan dropped 50 atombombs along the Chinish-Japanish marks, drawing the "Sea of Cobalt and Glass". After this, China under Chiehshih Chiang and his son Chingkuo Chiang inwent an eld of werthshiply growth called the "Wonder at the Blue Stream" and forholdings were forbettered with most of the world, Japan inheld. Sadly, Chingkuo Chiang died with no clear nighfollowsline in 1988 and in the chaos forthwith many risings, criglords, and de facto unoffhanging regerings popped up, some of which still bestand to this day.


Though China went through an eld of werthshiply growth in the 1960s–1970s, the yeartens following the death of the dictator Chingkuo Chiang have been a rough time: owing to ongoing fights and unsteadiness, China has not only lost many of its orsprings of income, its geld has swollen to practish worthlessness and few, if any, are willing to belay in her werthship. Her Gross Inlandsproduct stands at $1.832 billion and her Gross Inlandsproduct by Head is $1,618.914. China brooks the "Bargeld" or Chungkuo Hsienchin as its geld, but its main onehood, the Yüan is better known and many call it by that name instead. Shanghai, China's biggest stead and main haven, is also the closest thing it has for a wealthcentre and financial hub.

Though it is by law a freemarket werthship, the regering can in times of need—which China has lawfully been in since 1928—fang selfly-held industry, which it has in most strategish sectors. China has the world's greatest producer and forbroker of landworking products such as rice, tea, wheat, maize, taback, earthapples, treewool, other fruit and wurt, as well as swineflesh, henflesh, eggs, sheep, and cattle, while gold, copper, silver, gold, iron, salt, uran, and coal are among what is dug from its grooves. Her fabrics deal in steel, machinery, weaponry and gunstones, cloth, cement, chemicals, dungsel, forcharoutrysting, wagons, and foodprocessing. Some weighty Chinish geselships are Hon Hai Geselship, National Earthoil and Petroleum Geselship, Bank of China, Loft Chunghua, and the Chinish Ironway and Motorgeselship.

China's infrastructure is old—at least four yeartens out of time—and dealthmeal: for byspel, the Mukden-Canton-Hsining Ironway, which bound most of China's main steads, has been broken apart long ago. Steads such as Canton, Harbin, Hofei, Nanking, Ningpo, Shanghai, Tientsin, and Peking have their own S-Bane, though not all of these are under the regering's grip. The Yellow Stream, the Blue Stream, the Meregrot Stream, and the Amur are China's main waybere streams. Her main seahavens are Canton, Ningpo, Shanghai, and Tientsin, while the Shanghai International Lofthaven is the only one of any weight in China.

While China's GIP is aughtworthy, its GIP by Head—like most likewise criteria such as Quality of Life, standard of living, MOI, and others—stands sare low, though it has risen from an all-time low in 2018. Nevertheless, blackouts are gewone and outside of the bigger steads , sickness is widespread, togang to water and crafte is rare, and the folk can barely read or write China's riddle of a script.


The Heartland of the Chinish Nation, a stretch of land between the Yellow and the Blue Streams, is a Cradle of Civilisation, that is to say, it is one of the six ords where landworking and steadly life was onwicked more or less unoffhangingly. Since then, China has been the most befolkened land in the world. Today, around 1,132,062,500 folk live in her marks, making China the only land with a befolking over a milliard.

The morehood of China's folk are indeed Chinish: these are split into Highchinish and Netherchinish, the latter speaking in tongues such as Cantonish, Shanghainish, Hunanish, and Hokkienish, and put together they make up 84.6% of the folk. Everyone else mostly lives in the umlays: around 9.7% are Manchuriers and living in the 9 Provinces and 2 Steads of the Manchurish Selfruling Gebede or Manchou Tzŭchihling, while 1.7% are Chousenish, also living in MSG, around 1.3% are Mongolish and living in the 3 Provinces of the Inner Mongolish Selfruling Gebede or Neimêngku Tzŭchihchʻü, and 0.4% are Thibeters—It is worthy of note that there are more Chouseners, Mongols, and Thibeters in China than there are in Japanish Chousen, Mongoly, and Thibetia beteeingswise.—while 2.3% are 'others', these inholding Engles, Frenchmen, Portingalers, Japaners, Indochinamen, Russers, Sogds, Turks, and some inhomish Chinish leeds such as the Chuang and Hui.

As for religion, China is ambightly godless and its Groundlaw holds true to no gods. Meanwhile, 81.6% of the folk hold Chinish Folkreligion to be true. This inholds deeds such as worshipping sundry gods, ghosts, and the souls of one's dead forefathers. Buddhism is the twithe greatest religion, standing at 8.7%, and Christendom holds the third spot; most Christers are in Russish and Manchurish Orthodoxers, though a lesserhood of Catholicers and Protestants also bestand. Steppe Shamanism holds a yoke over 1.3% of the folk, and a further 0.2% are 'others', while around 4.6% of the folk are godless.

The morehood of China's folk are spread alongside the Blue Stream, the Yellow Stream, the Meregrot Stream, and the coastlines between these streams; indeed, sare little of China's hinterland, filled with berghs and waestes, is befolked. Shanghai is China's biggest stead, followed by Canton, Shamchun, Tientsin, and Chungking. Owing to politics mistakenly befealened by the Chinish regering in the 1980s, she is in a bleak demographish umstand today. Some 700 million folk -less than three-fourth of China's befolking now- are foreseen to die by 2050, with less than half of that being orset naturely. The fruitfulthoodsrate stands at 0.9 children for every woman, which has risen from a low of 0.3 in 1995; the mean Chinaman elds 44.5 years, and he may orward to live up to 71.3 years. There are 1.09 men to every woman in China.


The Stridecrafts of the Republic of China (Chinish: 中華民國國軍; Chunghua Minkuo Kuochün) is China's professional military crafts. It is split into five thenstboughs: the Landmight (Chinish: 陸軍; Luchün), the Marine (Chinish: 海軍; Haichün), the Marinecorps (Chinish: 海軍陸戰隊; Haichün Lu Chan Tui), the Loftmight (Chinish: 空軍; Kongchün), and the Militarypolice (Chinish: 憲兵; Hsienping).

The President is the Highmarshal of the Republic (Chinish: 民國大元帥; Minkuo Tayüanshuai) and as such its overcommander. The Ministry of Landfordeithing (Chinish: 國防部; Kuofangpu) deals with the daily needs of the military such as outfitting, budgetting, and veterans' inthings, while the Generalstaff Headquarters (Chinish: 總參謀部; Tsung Tsʻanmou Pu) deals with the militarish side of its needs such as outbilthing as well as drawing and betaking militaryplans, and it is led by the Head of the Generalstaff (Chinish: 參謀總長; Tsʻanmou Tsungchang), the SCRC's highest-ranking officer and professional head.

The SCRC is one of the biggest militaries in the world by the ontale of soldiers, with there being 2,384,000 soldiers and 2,167,000 reservists in thenst. The regering spent roughly $38.9 milliard on its militarybudget in 2023, around 2.1% of the GIP at the time. China has forplightly military thenst, all burghers and burgherines thaning for six months in the military upon reaching 18 years of eld. Since 1988, the Chinish Stridecrafts has been in a state of high readiness and even now, it is faring fieldtyges against the many criglords and militarygroups in uprising.
