The People’s Republic of China is the country with the largest area in East Asia. A fifth of the world’s population lives here. A third of them live in the plains of the East. Other names for the PR China are the outdated term Red China and mainland China, which is mainly used in the English-speaking area.

The People’s Republic of China was classified as a developing country until the 1990s, but has increasingly developed into a great power since it was partially opened up after the “Cultural Revolution”. It represents the “one China policy” internationally, the official recognition of which it has been enforcing in the West since the early 1970s. Economically, China is currently very dynamic, so that the current five-year plan already provides for a throttling against possible overheating. In order to curb the rapid population growth, the one-child policy applies, although this has been weakened in recent years. In the last few decades the population has grown from over 3% to below 1%.
