'''Taiwan''' ( as well as Penghu, Kinmen, Matsu (Matsu Islands), and other minor islands (List of islands of the Republic of China). Neighboring states include the People's Republic of China (China) to the west, Japan to the east and northeast, and the Philippines to the south. Taipei is the seat of the central government. New Taipei (New Taipei City), encompassing the metropolitan area surrounding Taipei proper, is the most populous city (List of cities in Taiwan).

The island of Taiwan (formerly known as "''Formosa''") was mainly inhabited by Taiwanese aborigines until the Dutch (Dutch Formosa) and Spanish settlement (Spanish Formosa) during the Age of Discovery in the 17th century, when Han Chinese began immigrating to the island. In 1662, the pro-Ming (Southern Ming Dynasty) loyalist Koxinga expelled the Dutch and established the first Han Chinese polity on the island, the Kingdom of Tungning. The Qing Dynasty of China later defeated the kingdom and annexed Taiwan. By the time Taiwan was ceded to Japan (Empire of Japan) in 1895, the majority of Taiwan's inhabitants were Han Chinese either by ancestry or by assimilation (Cultural assimilation). The Republic of China (Republic of China (1912–49)) (ROC) was established in China in 1912. After Japan's surrender in 1945, the ROC assumed its control of Taiwan. Following the Chinese civil war, the Communist Party of China took full control of mainland China and founded the People's Republic of China (PRC) in 1949. The ROC relocated its government to Taiwan, and its jurisdiction became limited to Taiwan and its surrounding islands (Free area of the Republic of China). In 1971, the PRC assumed China's seat at the United Nations (China and the United Nations), which the ROC originally occupied. International recognition (Diplomatic recognition) of the ROC has gradually eroded as most countries switched recognition to the PRC. and the Holy See currently maintain official diplomatic relations with the ROC. It has unofficial ties with most other states via its representative offices (Taipei Representative Office).

Constitutionally, there is dispute over whether the government claims sovereignty over all of "China," in a definition that includes mainland China and Outer Mongolia, http: www.judicial.gov.tw constitutionalcourt p03_01_printpage.asp?expno 328 but the ROC has not made retaking mainland China a political goal since 1992. Cross-Strait relations as well as issues of national identity (Taiwanese identity#Relationship between Taiwanese Identity and Chinese Identity) within the country are important factors in Taiwanese politics and a cause of social and political division among political parties and their respective supporters.

During the latter half of the 20th century, Taiwan experienced rapid economic growth (Taiwan Miracle) and industrialization and is now an advanced industrial economy (Developed country). In the 1980s and early 1990s, Taiwan evolved into a multi-party democracy (List of political parties in the Republic of China) with universal suffrage. Taiwan is one of the Four Asian Tigers and a member of the WTO (World Trade Organization) and APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation). The 19th-largest economy (List of countries by GDP (PPP)) in the world, CIA World Factbook- GDP (PPP)
