It is a Federal Democratic and Constitutional Republic compromising of twenty-three provinces, five autonomous regions, four municipalities and two special administrative regions (SARs). It is the de jure and de facto sole country representing all China and all Chinese nations (Chinese ethnic groups) within its claimed boundaries.
The country is located in East Asia and has over 5000 years of civilized history. The entire country, apart from its islands, lie on the Eurasia mainland. It has one of the world's oldest civilizations and has the oldest continuous civilization. It also has one of the world's oldest written language systems, as well as extending a historical cultural influence across the whole East Asia. By 2055, China is the world's third largest country by total area and second largest country by population.
In Latin, China has been historically referred to as Sinia (hence "Sino-"), Sinae, Cathay or Seres. The first known recorded use of the word "China" dates back to c. 1555. It is derived from Cin, a Persian name for China popularized in Europe by Marco Polo.
The official name of China changed with each dynasty. The common names are Zhōngguó (中国) and Zhōngyuán (中原); which means "central nation" or (traditionally) "middle kingdom" and "central plain" respectively.
The name Zhōngguó first appeared in the Classic of History (6th century BC) and was used to refer to the late Zhou Dynasty. Zhōngguó was often used by states who claimed themselves as the sole legitimate successor to all China from the previous Chinese dynasties.
Zhōngguó was first made as the official abbreviation of Republic of China (中华民国 Zhōngguó Mínguó) after the its establishment in 1912. This common and abbreviated name was also picked up officially by People's Republic of China (中华人民共和国 Zhōnghuá Rénmín Gònghéguó) since its establishment in 1949; and both entities' successor, the Federal Republic of the Chinese Nations in 2055.
