A curious quirk which remains as a result of the above is that both the People's Republic and the Republic of China acknowledge that there is only one China... and that they are the rightful government of all that China, with the other government being in effect a rebellion. Don't bring up the alternative - it's SeriousBusiness and likely to get you BannedInChina.

Starting in the late Eighties/early Nineties, the opposition parties gained more voice in the public arena, especially given the Nationalist party's rampant corruption issues. (The Nationalists were never particularly popular in Taiwan outside of the party, since they were seen to be ignoring "native" Taiwanese interests... never mind that indigenous Taiwanese had been confined to reservations long before the Nationalists arrived). As pressure mounted, the Nationalist party began removing restrictions on free speech and free press, and Congress began the long, arduous process of amending the constitution to correct the most obvious inequities.

The "Martial Law" record was surpassed somewhat recently by Syria. Updated.
Unique among most of Japan's neighbors, the relationship between Japan and Taiwan has been generally positive and easygoing, with relatively few bitter grudges stemming from the Japanese occupation, especially considering that Taiwan was spared most of the horrors of the UsefulNotes/SecondSinoJapaneseWar. It saw no significant land battles (though hundreds of thousands of Taiwanese fought in the [[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun Imperial Japanese Army]], and the island was devastated by American bombing which destroyed more than 90% of its industrial and electric output). The Japanese occupation ended after [=WW2=] when the Allies handed over Taiwan to the Republic of China, but decades of corrupt rule and SecretPolice arrests and executions--called the "White Terror"--under the Chinese ended up creating a popular nostalgia for the time when Taiwan was a colony of the Japanese Empire. During the tyranny of Chiang Kai-shek's evacuated government, hundreds of thousands of Taiwanese were first involved in a violent uprising (following the infamous 228 Incident in Taipei), or targeted in subsequent terror period, being arrested, executed or otherwise "disappeared", usually for being accused of communist sympathizers, in the longest period of martial law in modern history.
