Adapted into English by Pryaltonian from the Chinese Wikipedia. The original ROC map included more cities, but the adaptation removed non-central municipalities to clean up the image. Therefore, this image contains:

Republic of China

  • 36 provinces
  • 14 municipalities
  • 2 areas
  • 1 special administrative region

People's Republic of China

  • 23 provinces
  • 4 municipalities
  • 5 autonomous regions
  • 2 special administrative regions
  • 1 territorial base

The image also includes the addition of Chongqing as a municipality and the Gansu-Qinghai border change.

Comments, suggestions, adaptations, critiques are all welcome. (04:34, 3 September 2006 (UTC))
