China, located in East Asia, is the world’s most populous country.
The People's Republic of China (PRC) is a single-party state governed by the Communist Party, with its seat of government in the capital city of Beijing. It 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). China’s topography has been described as a staircase that descends from west to east. The highest part of the country is the Tibetan Plateau, over 5,000 feet above sea level with mountain peaks over 23,000 feet, followed by desert regions, the Taklimakan, and finally down to the coastal zones.
Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and The New York Times are unavailable in China.
The world’s first paper money was created in China.
Kites were invented in China over 3,000 years ago. They were used to frighten enemies in battle. It was considered bad luck to let a kite go on purpose.
Fortune cookies are not a traditional Chinese custom. They were invented in 1920 by a worker in the Key Heong Noodle Factory in San Francisco.
