In addition to the 56 officially recognized ethnic groups, there are some Chinese who privately classify themselves as members of unrecognized ethnic groups (such as Jewish, Tuvan, Oirat and Ili Turki), although most Chinese who are uncertain of their specific ethnicity identify themselves generically as Han.
In the PRC and the Republic of China, the various ethnic groups in China are part of a broader "civil ethnicity" known as the Chinese nation (中華民族; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Mínzú).
The multi-ethnic nature of China results in many centuries of assimilation, expansion and modern consolidation of territories incorporated by the Qing dynasty, whose emperors were themselves Manchu and not members of the majority Han.

Special administrative regions were provided for in the 1982 Constitution in anticipation of the retrocession of Hong Kong and Macau, but were only established in 1997 and 1999 in Hong Kong and Macau respectively when China resumed its exercise of sovereignty in these regions.
Special administrative regions are nominally designated first-order (provincial-level) administrative divisions like other provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions, but SARs reserve much bigger autonomy, with their own courts of final appeal, legal systems, passports, currencies, customs control, immigration policies, extradition, etc., except diplomatic relations and national defence.

 Geographic and ethnic diversity of China   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
China not only has the world’s largest population (over 1.3 billion), but it also is an extremely large country (more than 9.5 million square kilometers) with immense geographic and cultural diversity.
The largest group, the Han, make up over 92% of China's vast population, and it is the elements of Han civilization that the world considers "Chinese culture." Yet, the 55 ethnic minorities, nestled away on China's vast frontiers, maintain their own rich traditions and customs, and all are part of Chinese culture.
Even though the modern concept of 56 ethnic groups is often considered an arbitrary and conservative summary of the hundreds of diverse peoples in China, it pales in comparison to the simplicity by which the ancient Han people distinguished their nomadic neighbors.
