The People's Republic of China is comprised of its people. The people are the ones upon whom the government relies for power. Without them, the government has no say in the international community. Any action directed toward China is directed towards its people, and the people are the ones who feel its effects.
"The People's Republic of China has been communist since the 1940s" is how it would be used in a sentence.
