Taiwan, officially the Republic of China (ROC), is a state in East Asia. It has a total area of 35,980 square km. Its capital city is Taipei and largest city is New Taipei. Mandarin, Formosan languages, Taiwanese Hokkien and Hakka are its national languages. Its official currency is New Taiwan dollar (NT$) (TWD). It has no land bordering countries. Taiwan is an amazing island nation that is nestled in the middle of the ocean off the coast of Mainland China. It is so unique because of its history and a number of unique cultural factors. Taiwan is influenced by Japan, Korea and Mainland China. It also has a democratic system influenced by the West and the UK.

Taiwan is an eclectic mix of enterprises and individuals, including governmental officials, farmers, small business owners, and artisans. The working class is one fifth of the population, and the middle class makes up another fifth.

The condominiums resemble the average Taiwanese person in that they are vertical, tall, and skinny. Many people take the stairs to get up to their flats. Each apartment is typically quite small, and very expensive.

Most Taiwanese don’t like the rain. It rains often; however, walking in a bit of rain is a no no in the culture, even if it is only for a few seconds. This typically has to do with pollution and fears of acid rain on their skin.

There are no garbage cans outdoors. Garbage cans are usually kept inside of a house or place of business. The garbage is tossed into a garbage truck when it arrives. These trucks play loud music to indicate their arrival in the streets.

Although Taiwan operates as an independent country, many countries (including the U.S.) do not officially recognize it as one. The People’s Republic of China considers Taiwan a breakaway province of China, and countries who wish to maintain diplomatic relations with China have had to sever their formal relations with Taiwan .
