A democratic island country which is not recognized by the western powers solely because they want to maintain a economic relationship with People's Republic of China.
It had been under the colonization of different nations: The Dutch, the Japanese, and then the Chinese Nationalist who fled to Taiwan after losing the civil war against the Chinese Communists. After decades, the Nationalists and the Taiwanese eventually became one, just when the Communists start to claim that Taiwan is part of China.
*Some reasons why don't the Taiwanese people want to be a part of China:
Corrupt government controlled by a single party.
Mass genocide. (Tibet and Uyghur)
No right for their people (they can't even vote)
They have hunderds of missles ready to launch to Taiwan.
They've locked the economy of Taiwan and plan to press it further.
The Taiwanese people don't pay taxes to the Chinese government.
Most of the world have turned their back against us because of self interest. Where is justice? Where is human rights? Why should we, who had been enslaved again and again and finally regained independence, be robbed of our land once more?
Like the Tibetans and the Urghur people, We need to be freed from Chinese opression once and for all. I hope you've all seen Brave Heart. What we need is FREEDOM.
We are born to the island of Taiwan, and it is our home.
We were raised here, from infants to adults.
On this little piece of land we find our love, just like you.
We will grow old, and we will die here.
We are the Taiwanese.
