As is well known, China is the most populous nation in the world; estimates for June 2019 put the population at 1.42 billion. Due to the 'one child policy' (recently relaxed), however, the population is only growing by 0.5% a year, a comparatively low figure. Perhaps surprisingly, China is only the fourth largest country by area, being smaller than Russia, Canada and the USA.
Although China is densely populated overall, the population is unevenly distributed. The vast majority live in the eastern half of the country, where Chinese peoples have lived for millennia. The Western half is largely made up of mountain and desert, and is largely a relic of the Chinese Empire rather than China proper.
In economic terms, China is likely to become the world's largest economic power and remain so for some time. How long the people can endure the system of government they have at present may well be a counfounding factor, however. More »
