Finished Chinese minorities. Including: Koreans, Manchus, Mongols, Hui, Kazakhs, Uyghurs, Tibetans, Lisu, Bai, Dei, Yi, Hani, Zhuang, Li, and 3 different Miao states.
Why are Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, and Shenzhen distinct from the rest of Han China?
Chinese Hansa aka the wealthy urbanised westernised bits of China.Why are Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, and Shenzhen distinct from the rest of Han China?
Noted!Also, Ulanqab has a Mongol population of 2-3%, it really shouldn't be part of Mongolia
Turpan should be part of the Uyghur state
It doesn't really make sense to separate those urban areas from the rest of China. They are all more tied to their regional identity than to people from other major Chinese cities. Really, Beijing and Tianjin should be part of the Mandarin state, and Shanghai part of the Wu state (Shanghainese is actually the prestige dialect of Wu). Shenzhen is a special case but it should also really be part of the Mandarin country.
In regards to points of interest, I think that what appears to be an occupied northern Chad, war in New Guinea and Bengal, and that independent state between Serbia and Hungary, are the most interesting areas at first glance.I'd like to add points of interest, though, so if anybody's got questions about any particular part I'd really appreciate it if you pointed them out so I can write notes for them.
