[[caption-width-right:350: If we didn't include Taiwan, we'd be BannedInChina.[[note]]Technically, this map still fails to include South Tibet (Most of Arunachal Pradash administered by India today) or denotes Chinese ownership of South China Sea Islands; however nobody cares unless a website (or its users) actively politically oppose Chinese officialdom.[[/note]]]]

When people mention "Asia" then the first country to pop up in your head is probably going to be China. This has become so common that for some people, China is synonymous with Asia, much to the annoyance of everyone who isn't ignorant. As the most populated country in the world, and with an economy on the rise daily, the People's Republic of China is a country well worth understanding better, partly to avoid the many stereotypes of the country and the Chinese people over the years. The President and Vice President of the People's Republic of China [[PresidentForLife serves for life]], though true authority lies with the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China[[note]]The Chairman's and Vice Chairman's seats were abolished, hence why the General Secretary now holds the highest authority in the party. [[/note]] while top military command goes to Chairman of the Central Military Commission, a role usually also hold by the General Secretary who's usually elected as the President (still known as the State Chairman in Chinese). Basically one has to hold these three positions to gain full power of the head of government of China.

->The red field is a historic color of communism, but also of the ethnic Han; the four golden stars apparently surrounding a larger star symbolize the peasants, workers, the middle-class and patriotic capitalists guided by the Communist Party of China.
