Well, Taiwan is the usual name of 'The Republic of China' like would you say Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace or Brunei, Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan or Afghanistan?

Also Nagorno-Karabakh is misspelled and same with the above, Artsakh is also the usual name.

No need to be grumpy but if the republic of china wants to break off of china its as if california and nevada called themselves the United States and wanted to breakoff from the United States of America.

There is really no parallel at all to the United States. If Communists took over the country and Barack Obama, Congress, and the Supreme Court justices all fled to Hawaii and set up shop there- and then Hawaii became known as the USA but it was the only territory they controlled while the rest of the country became the People's Republic of America, with the new Communist government in Washington claiming that it was the true American government while the president in Congress in Honolulu claimed that they were the true American government..... but everyone stopped calling the Obama/Congress country the USA because it didn't make much sense and instead simply called their country "Hawaii," then.... that would be the same.

Kosovo and Taiwan have gained independence, in spite of whatever China or Serbia might say. They are internationally recognized, they control their own borders, have their own completely autonomous governments, issue their own passports, have their own independent militaries, and Taiwan prints its own currency (Kosovo probably would if not for the Euro) and has its own language. They are independent in every sense of the word. Somaliland (and Puntland, not on the quiz but in the same country) are somewhat autonomous, but that's mostly because the Somali government is so weak it doesn't even control all of Mogadishu.

Would you consider accepting "Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic" (or whatever variants you wish) for Western Sahara?

As I understand it, Western Sahara is the name of the region, and SADR the political entity that claims it and occupies some of it.
