The Republic of China is a state in China.

OverviewEdit

The Republic of China is the rump state that remained after the fall of the Communist Party, the secession of several regions, and the Chinese Civil War that resulted in the fragmentation of the remainder of China.

It consists of the province of Hebei and the metropolitan district of Tianjin. The Republic of China has poor relations with its Chinese neighbors, but good relations with non-Chinese nations. Foreign megacorps provide it's military with a lot of aid, as they don't want to see the Republic of China fall to the neighboring anti-megacorp states of Henan or Manchuria.[1]

Sixth World in the Republic of ChinaEdit

MetahumansEdit

Though things were not all roses for metahumans when they appeared in China (e.g. parents abandoning ork and troll children), due to cultural factors the Han Chinese were more easily able to accept the emergence of metahumans than people in Japan, India, the Middle East, or some of the more conservative regions and nations in the West (e.g. the Confederation of American States or Spain). The treatment of metahumans is generally likewise better than in most of the world, especially compared to the CAS, Japan, or the Middle East. This is reflected in the Chinese megacorp Wuxing, Inc., their criminal syndicates (Triads), and in both Daoism and Buddhism.[2][3][4][5][6]

AwakenedEdit

Magic was embraced by the Chinese relatively easily due to Daoism and Buddhism, and therefore its reintegration into Chinese society was far easier than it was in the Islamic nations or in most of the Catholic world. The Awakened are favored in Chinese society and the use of magic in society is greater than in the West as demonstrated by Wuxing, Inc., the state of Sichuan, the Triads, or Hong Kong.[7][8][9][10][11]
