The hell i care with Chinese Spellings...
Hai = Ocean
He = River
-this post was made by the Chinese government
The words Shǎn and Shān (in Pinyin, basically Chinese in English letters) have different meanings due to the different ways they should be pronounced.
To differentiate between them in English they decided to add another A to Shǎnxī.
And second of all, sovereignity is probably the most important thing to form a country: all JetPunk official countries have at least 90 other countries recognising it. Taiwan has 15, the most important (economically) of them being Guatemala, the 74th largest GDP in the world. And more important, the UN, the most important international organization.
Overall, except for some isolated countries and JetPunkers, nobody recognises it!
I'm not against the independence of the province, but currently, the fact is that Taiwan IS NOT a country.
Second, yes, Taiwan has its own laws, its own political system and so, but let's just remind that, by far, its most important trading partner is still China, meaning that if the chinese government decided to cut their relations, that'd be it! But China doesn't consider it to be a problem, they have better things to do!
Third, let's remind that the Chinese army is about 20 times the size of the Taiwanese army. That means, if they ever decided to (officialy) declare independence, that'd also be it!
Finally, Taiwan is somehow free to make choices, but let's not ilude ourselves.
