This video was trending a while ago on facebook, but LEONCHI brought it up in his blog, we thought we should also include it here.

A few things to make clear about the video though:

Here, “China” refers to the People’s Republic of China 中華人民共和國.

4. Taiwan is the first democratic country in Asia
The first democratic country in Asia is the Republic of China (ROC) 中華民國, established in 1912. To understand the relationship between ROC and Taiwan, read Taiwan the Complicated.

10. Taiwan has just reached its 100th birthday
Here “Taiwan” is used interchangeably with the “Republic of China”. Read more about the ROC Centennial Celebration.
