Southwest China is the most exotic area of China, home to many minority ethnic groups. It has much in common with Northwest China; both areas are far less prosperous than the eastern and southern coastal regions.

Much of the terrain is quite mountainous. Tibet and Northwestern Yunnan are located on the Tibetan Plateau and have many very high mountains; including the world's highest (Mount Everest) which is located in on the Tibet/Nepalese border. Guizhou has smaller mountains, terraced rice fields, and many caves.

The regions of Sichuan and Chongqing are considered part of Western China, because they are the edge of "China proper" (the area historically inhabited by Han Chinese) even though they are near the geographical center of the modern Chinese state. Western Sichuan was once part of a Tibetan Kingdom and part of Eastern Tibet; it lies at the edge of the region and is the gateway to the frontier/minority provinces of Tibet and Qinghai.

People´s Republic of China

Great Hall Of The People Beijing China

China, officially the People´s Republic of China, is a sovereign state located in East Asia. China is the world´s most populous country, with a population of over 1.35 billion. 

The PRC is a single-party state governed by the Communist Party, with its seat of government in the capital city of Beijing

The PRC exercises jurisdiction over 22 provinces, five autonomous regions, four direct-controlled municipalities (Beijing, Tianjin Shanghai, and Chongqing), and two mostly self-governing special administrative regions (Hong Kong and Macau).

 The PRC also claims Taiwan – which is controlled by the Republic of China (ROC), a separate political entity – as its 23rd province, a claim which is controversial due to the complex political status of Taiwan. Covering approximately 9.6 million square kilometers, China is the world´s second-largest country by land area, and either the third or fourth-largest by total area, depending on the method of measurement. China´s landscape is vast and diverse, ranging from forest steppes and the Gobi and Taklamakan deserts in the arid north to subtropical forests in the  south.

The Yangtze and Yellow Rivers

  The Himalaya, Karakoram, Pamir and Tian Shan mountain ranges separate China from South and Central Asia. 

The Yangtze and Yellow Rivers, the third- and sixth-longest in the world, run from the Tibetan Plateau to the densely populated eastern seaboard. China´s coastline along the Pacific Ocean is 14,500 kilometres (9,000 mi) long, and is bounded by the Bohai, Yellow, East and South China Seas. 

The Yellow Rivers China
The Yellow Rivers Northern China

The history of China goes back to the ancient civilization – one of the world´s earliest – that flourished in the fertile basin of the Yellow River in the North China Plain

For millennia, China´s political system was based on hereditary monarchies, known as dynasties, beginning with the semi-mythological Xia of the Yellow River basin . Since 221 BCE, when the Qin Dynasty first conquered several states to form a Chinese empire, the country has expanded, fractured and been reformed numerous times. 

The Republic of China (ROC) overthrew the last dynasty in 1911, and ruled the Chinese mainland until 1949. After the defeat of the Empire of Japan in World War II, the Communist Party defeated the nationalist Kuomintang in mainland China and established the People´s Republic of China in Beijing on 1 October 1949, while the Kuomintang relocated the ROC government to its present capital of Taipei.

Since the introduction of economic reforms in 1978, China has become one of the world´s fastest-growing major economies. As of 2013, it is the world´s second-largest economy by both nominal total GDP and purchasing power parity (PPP), and is also the world´s largest exporter and importer of goods. China is a recognized nuclear weapons state and has the world´s largest standing army, with the second-largest defense budget. 

The PRC has been a United Nations member since 1971, when it replaced the ROC as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council. China is also a member of numerous formal and informal multilateral organizations, including the WTO, APEC, BRICS, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the BCIM and the G-20. China is a regional power within Asia and has been characterized as a potential superpower by a number of commentators.
