The People's Republic of China is a country in East Asia. It is bordered by Russia, India, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Myanmar, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Laos, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Tajikistan, North Korea and Bhutan. China is the world's most populous country, totalling roughly 1.404 billion people. The capital city is Beijing. The official language of China is Standard Chinese; however Mongolian, Tibetan, Uyghur and Zhuang are a few of the many other languages that are used throughout the country.
The People's Republic of China is the result of a two-hundred-year process of change in which the Chinese empire was replaced and China transformed into a modern state. The dramatic events that accompanied this process still shape the country's political actors today.
In MedalBook, China is divided into Imperial China, Republic of China and Hong Kong Administration. For more information, see each respective folder.
