    Republic of Chinaball (1949-present)

    (Redirected from Taiwanball)
    For its younger version when it once controlled the mainland, see Republic of Chinaball (1912-1949).

    Republic of Chinaball (abbreviated to ROCball), better known as Taiwanball, is an unrecognised island countryball, located in the Western Pacific Ocean, and Eastern Asia. Hence their nickname of Taiwanball, they control the island of Taiwan, along with a few other tiny islands, closer to China-icon.png Chinaball. Due to being an island, they have no borders, but their closest neighbours are China-icon.png Chinaball to the Northwest, Philippines-icon.png Philippinesball to the south, and the Ryukyu Islands of Japan-icon.png Japanball. ROCball isis fully claimed by China-icon.png Chinaball, who wants to reunify with them by making them the Special Administrative Regionball of Chinese Taipei-icon.png Chinese Taipeiball, like Hong Kong-icon.png Hong Kongball and Macau-icon.png Macauball.

    ROCball is divided into 2 nominal provinces, 6 special municipalities, 3 provincial cities, and 13 counties, including its capital Taipei-icon.png Taipeiball being one of the municipalities located in the North. They have 32,260 km² of clay, making them the 134th largest countryball if you recognise them (ahead of Guinea-Bissau-icon.png Guinea-Bissauball and behind Switzerland-icon.png Switzerlandball), and they are also the 57th most populous with 23,375,314 people, ahead of Sri Lanka-icon.png Sri Lankaball and behind Niger-icon.png Nigerball.

    Due to not being a fully recognized countryball, ROCball ha s not been able to join any sort of international organizations. They were temporarily a member of the UN-icon.png UNball, until they voted to recognise their China-icon.png stronger sibling in 1971, 22 years after the Chinese Civil War ended. However, 47 countryballs have non-diplomatic relations and most if not all of them have de facto embassies run by ROCball. Most of these countryballs act like they do recognise it, but do not to not cause problems with China-icon.png Chinaball. Only 13 countryballs recognise them today, with that number rapidly shrinking. ROCball also has 110 diplomatic missions.

    Unlike other unrecognised countryballs, ROCball is internationally called an independent countryball, and has a big economy, mainly made up of several kinds of manufacturing. Although they used to be a totalitarian martial law country in the past, they later transitioned from a one-party military dictatorship to a multi-party democracy with a semi-presidential system, compared to China-icon.png Chinaball's Marxist-Leninist semi-presidential one-party dictatorship.

    Taiwanball's birthday is on October 10, known as Double Tenth Day, which is different from other national day celebrations. Double Tenth Day always shows huge military parades, and has been observed since 1949.

    History (Island of Taiwan)

    The island of Formosa was born and later adopt by 1-icon.png many chinese dynasties, up until the era of Yuan-icon.png Yuanball. Later two separate colonies got their hands over the island. One to Dutch Empire-icon.png Netherlandsball in 1624 as a 7-icon.png 7ball, and one to Spanish Empire-icon.png Spainball as a 2-icon.png 2ball, unlike all other East Asian balls.

    They were given the name “Ilha Formosa” or “Beautiful Island” by Portuguese Empire-icon.png Portugalball. Dutch East Indies-icon.png Dutch Formosaball anschlussed its Spanish Formosa-icon.png Spanish sibling and kicked the Spanish in 1642. Formosa, under Dutch rule, leads to mass Han immigration which attracted Ming-icon.png Kingdom of Tungningball (fake Ming-icon.png Mingball) to occupy it as a base to strike back at Qing-icon.png Qingball, but the former wasn't very successful because Qingball kicked it out and became the new rulers of Formosa.

    Many of the Hokkienballs from Qing-icon.png Qingball's Fujianball province, being the majority of the population right after the Hakka.

    In 1895, Formosaball was occupied and annexed by Japanese-Empire-icon.png the Empire of Japanball. It spent the next 50 years with it.

    The Republic of China (1912-1949)

    From 1912, the Republic of China-icon (1912-1928).png Republic of Chinaball was born after killing Qing-icon.png Qingball.

    In 1945, after USA-icon.png USAball and China blew up the Empire of Japanball, Formosa was given to the care of Taiwan-icon.png Nationalist Chinaball. To make sure that its soul would take over its clay without pesky Japanese remnants, ROCball shot up much of Formosaball on February 28, 1947, in an incident known as 228.

    To cement their claims over all of China, Formosa, Tibet, and even Mongolia-icon.png Mongoliaball, ROCball wrote this in Section I, Article 4 of the Constitution of the Republic of China, 1947, saying The territory of the Republic of China according to its existing national boundaries shall not be altered except by resolution of the National Assembly.

    But 2 years later, their big communist sibling China-icon.png Chinaball soon beat it and took over most of its sibling's clay. It was forced to flee to the island and its seat was stolen by China-icon.png Chinaball according to South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball.

    Even at the island though, it didn't stop its right-wing totalitarian ways and instilled a political repression known as "White Terror" starting from the Feburary 28th incident which killed 18,000-28,000 people. White Terror and repression to against "commies" saw it kill further hundreds and thousands of people on the island until 1987 when Chiang Kai Shek died and his son stopped one-party rule leading to the rise of DPP.

    In the 1960s and 70s it highly industrialized and saw huge economic growth known as the Taiwan Miracle.

    From late 1970s to 90s, after the Kaohsiung Incident which united the opposition, liberal reforms had transformed Taiwan-icon.png Taiwanball from a totalitarian military dictatorship under martial law to a more liberal democracy.

    Formosa was completely possessed by the ROC, both fused into today's Taiwanball.

    History (ROC)

    Nationalist Chinaball was born in 1911 after its parent ​Qing-icon.png Qingball died. Its clay, inherited from its parent, had lots of foreign-occupied patches in it. In 1915, Empire of China-icon.pngit almost became another dynastic Chinaball like its parent and ancestors, and this resulted in it having lots of warlord cliques, including ​​Chinaball, who would later defeat it.

    In the 1920s, Nationalist Chinaball had lots of tumors, and diseases fought each other for control of its body. In 1928, it became a Unitary state. Japanball took advantage of this to expand its territory in East Asia, by taking one of its children, Manchuball, and turning it into Manchukuoball in 1931. In 1937, Japanball kidnapped and raped Chinaball, just as it was beginning to recover from its illnesses.

    It's estimated during the rule of KMT, ROCball killed 3 - 18 million people due to political repression to communist. (some of them are innocents but being wrongly regarded as communist).

    However, when USA-icon.png USAball helped it defeat ​Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanball in 1945, its rebellious communist sibling, ​China-icon.png Communist-controlled Chinaball, became ​China-icon.pngChinaball and injured it in 1949, while it fled and took away the Formosa Provinceball's body, becoming Taiwanball. Republic of Chinaball is currently alive through recognised until 1971. It was part of the UN until 1971.


    Current Situation

    Taiwanball and China-icon.png its sibling both speak Mandarin, but Taiwanball uses ancient Chinese characters for writing, whereas China-icon.png PRCball uses rip-off simplified Chinese characters. Taiwanball also usually speaks Taiwanese Hokkien (or just Taiwanese), which is a Hokkien language but has some European loan words. Both of the brothers differ greatly on their age. Taiwanball is 109 years old, while PRCball is only 71.

    According to an opinion poll released by the Mainland Affairs Council taken after the second 2008 meeting, 71.79% of the Taiwanese public supported continuing negotiations and solving issues between the two sides through the semi-official organizations, SEF and ARATS, 18.74% of the Taiwanese public did not support this, while 9.47% of the Taiwanese public did not have an opinion.

    In 2015, a poll conducted by the Taiwan Braintrust showed that about 90 percent of the population would identify themselves as Taiwanese rather than Chinese if they were to choose between the two. Around 56% would rather remain as they currently are, 31% would like to separate with China-icon.png PRCball, and 8% would like to reunify with China-icon.png PRCball. The rest did not answer.

    China-icon.png PRCball especially the people see it differently, they see the situation as an embarrassment and a scar, seeing the situation as a North Korea and South Korea situation where a country's people are split based on politics which's why China-icon.png PRCball wants to reunify.

    Taiwanball is protected by USA-icon.png USAball and other allies. This means if China-icon.png PRCball attempts to conquer it, he would face strong opposition from the allies, meaning that this could lead to countries stopping acknowledging the One China policy.

    Most other countryballs don't want to recognize Taiwanball as an independent countryball because they believe that China will invade them, despite Taiwan loving to invest in them.

    When Taiwanball competes in international sports events, it does it under the name Chinese-Taipei-icon.png Chinese Taipeiball.

    In 2020, the DPP President Tsai Ing-wen of the Pan-Green DPP was elected with a great majority, resulting in Han Kuo-yu's defeat.
