An island on which a partially recognized country called the Republic of China resides, led by the nationalist party of China, represented by the Nationalist flag of China.

The vast majority of the population are ethnic Chinese, who speak Mandarin and utilize Chinese characters.

Over 65% of the island's trade (imports/exports) is conducted with the people's republic of china (as of 2011), and over 1 million ROC citizens live and work in the PRC, overseeing ROC investments.

The Chinese nationalist regime presiding over Taiwan Island claims all of the PRC, Mongolia, parts of India and other territories because it considers itself the legitimate ruler over all of 'Greater' China as defined by historical boundaries and by the fact that it lost these territories to the communists in the Chinese civil war.

Used to be a Province of China,an island where next to Fujian Province of China,most people are Han folks,including a big amount of Hakka-speaking and Minan-speaking Chinese,and some kinds of native minority.Now it has government,military and independent economic system as well,but not yet an independent country formally,Taiwan is still in the name of "Taiwan,A Republic of China's province",the Capital of Taiwan is Taiepi,has been the temporary capital of Republic of China since General Cheng Kai-shi's government has escaped to Taiwan.
The name of "Taiwan" was given by Ching Dynasty Chinese government,so it would be more patriotic to remove the name of "Taiwan" when it is going to be independent,for completely distinguish from China in both concept of history or nationalism.
Taiwan affair is the only thing which interrupt China's attention to the glorious fame again.
