The People's Republic of China sometimes known as China is a state in East Asia. With a population of more than 1.4 billion, it is the most populated nation on earth. The second most borders of any country in the world, behind Russia, are shared by China, which straddles five time zones geographically.

It is the third or fourth largest country in the world, with a total area of roughly 9.6 million square kilometers (3,700,000 sq mi). 23 provinces, five autonomous regions, four municipalities, and two Special Administrative Regions make up the nation (Hong Kong and Macau). Beijing serves as the country's capital, while Shanghai serves as the country's largest metropolis and financial hub.

The North China Plain's fertile Yellow River valley served as a cradle of civilization and is where modern Chinese can trace their ancestry. A bureaucratic governmental structure was created to support the hereditary monarchy, or dynasties, by the semi-legendary Xia dynasty in the 21st century BCE and the well-documented Shang and Zhou dynasties.

The development of Chinese writing, Chinese classic literature, and the Hundred Schools of Thought during this time had a long-lasting impact on China and its neighbors.
