State of Asia, the first political unit in the world by number of residents and the third after Russia and Canada, by surface, China extends from the coasts of the Pacific Ocean, to the E, up to the Pamir massif, and is approximately between course of the Amur (N) and the Indochinese peninsula (S). Unlike other large states formed after the seventeenth century as a result of expansionist pressures, China owes its territorial structure to a long process that continued uninterruptedly from the first millennium to. C. and practically consolidated as early as the seventh century. On the strength of an ancient geographical and cultural unity, China has nevertheless had to face various issues relating to its borders over the course of history, repeatedly contested by neighboring countries (the former USSR for the areas of the Ussuri and Xinjiang, the India for Assam and the western Himalayas, Pakistan and India again for Kashmir), as they are often traced in a conventional way, as well as its jurisdiction over some territories (for example Macao, Hong Kong, Taiwan and some islands of the China Sea, also claimed by Viet Nam, Brunei, Philippines, Malaysia). The immense Chinese territory, divided into two distinct areas by an imaginary diagonal line of separation in the NE-SW direction, identifies different morphological and climatic zones, characterized by anthropogenic presences and peculiar economic activities. The outermost part, open to the ocean front and elongated to include continental Manchuria, (wedged in Siberian territory and always exploited for the considerable mineral resources) is occupied by plains and hills, and crossed by the longest rivers on the continent. For millennia, it has been the terrain par excellence for the development of agriculture, the fundamental basis of the life of the country and a determining factor in the extraordinary demographic concentration that has stratified over the centuries. The other part, internal China, instead shows the most rugged aspect of the country and hides the highest plateaus in the world within it; sparsely populated land, often desert, is the traditional land of shepherds, in part still nomads, which has recently rediscovered itself as the custodian of considerable energy resources, becoming the protagonist of an extraordinary industrial and settlement development. A country of primates (here are the most majestic bridges and dams in the world, here the main lake basins and merchant ports with the greatest traffic of goods on the continent), China has left a distinctive mark on the last decades of the twentieth century, connoting the first years of the following millennium with an ever more marked presence. The main producer of almost every type of commodity (from agricultural products, to minerals, to technological artifacts), the Chinese giant has literally invaded markets all over the world, imposing itself not only for the low cost of labor, the availability of labor and raw material, information technology. Thus, if on the one hand the West looks to the Chinese giant as a formidable competitor for the competitiveness of its economy on global markets, on the other it seems to be helplessly witnessing the reversal of trends up to now, such as the processes of delocalization, reversed. to the point that it is the Chinese multinationals that take over American industries and set up their headquarters in Western countries, to excel in the aerospace sector, in scientific research, in biotechnology. If what the West, at least in part, seems to have underestimated, is the enormous potential represented by the Chinese community, which alone constitutes, in a nutshell, the largest group of users and consumers on the planet (Internet users, there are about 668 million in 2015), on the other hand, the rest of the world is wondering about the price and the consequences on a global level (environmental but also social and cultural) that this development that seems unbridled could entail, in the fear that the immense growth may prove to be a dangerous term bubble. While waiting to understand how this trend will evolve – although a slowdown in economic growth has already been perceived since 2011 (which is still high) – and to see how the country will be able to deal with the suspended issues that continue to be the background to economic development (growing pollution, political censorship, overpopulation and unequal distribution of wealth, inadequacy of democratic structures, to name the main ones) China has decided to renew itself also in the way in which to detect and monitor national progress and evolution, perhaps waiting for the other powers to align themselves. No longer the GDP, therefore, as a fundamental indicator to guide the decisions of the government and define the lines of policy, including the economic one, but the “happiness index”: at least according to the mandate received in 2006 by the officials of the National Statistics Center, which have the task of identifying the state of well-being of the population among different parameters of satisfaction, starting from the psychological ones. According to COUNTRYAAH, China is a nation in Eastern Asia, the capital city of which is Beijing. The latest population of China is 1,439,323,787.
