Not only is China the third largest country in the world today - almost 3.7 million square miles, and has the largest population - more than 1.3 billion people, it is the world's oldest contiuous civilization with over five thousand years of art, philosophy, and inventions. China as a geographic and cultural entity located in continental East Asia with some outer territories in Central Asia and offshore islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Since 1949 “China” has been divided de facto between the People's Republic of China governing mainland China and numerous islands; Hong Kong since 1997 and Macao since 1999; and the Republic of China, governing Taiwan Province and several outlying islands of Fukien Province.

The 2008 Summer Olympics were hosted by China in Beijing.

Ancient China –
(2000 B.C. — A.D. 220)

Like the civilizations of the Fertile Crescent, Chinese civilizations grew up in the valleys surrounding two great rivers — the Yellow River and the Yangtze River. The rich, fertile plain that lies between these two rivers contains about 90 percent of China's land that is usable for farming. And it was here that China's first cities appeared, around 2000 B.C. . . .

Only an estimated 3,000 Giant Pandas, a bear native to China, survive into the 21st Century. There are approximately 250 pandas in captivity; the numbers in the wild appear to be rising due to intensive conservation efforts. Even though giant pandas are classified as carnivors, 99% of their diet is bamboo, a woody perennial evergreen in the grass family.
