Facts about China


China,
officially the People’s Republic of China is a country in East Asia
and the world’s most populous country, with a population of around
1.404 billion in 2017. Covering approximately 9,600,000 square
kilometres, it is the third or fourth-largest country by total
area.  China’s
political system was based on hereditary Monarchies or dynasties
beginning with the semi-mythical Xia dynasty in 21st
 Century BCE.

China
as a whole was ravaged by feudal warlordism with Japan during World
War II. The Chinese civil war resulted in a division of territory in
1949 when the communist party of China led by Mao Zedong established
the people’s republic of China on mainland China. Also the
Kuomintang led nationalist government retreated to the Island of
Taiwan where it governed until 1996 when Taiwan changed to democracy.
