  Political divisions of China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most of the provinces of China, with the exception of the provinces in the northeast, have boundaries which were established during the Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties.
Maps of China published in Taiwan will often show provincial boundaries as they were in 1949 which do not match the current administrative structure as decided by the Communist Party of China post-1949, and include all of the areas claimed by the ROC.
Also, the urban townships and rural townships of the Republic of China are the same as towns and townships of the mainland; the difference is in the translation to English.

However, practically, there is a clear need to direct China to PRC and thus the articles such as the politics of China exists which is dedicated solely to PRC, even though the usage of "China" does not comply with the NPOV convention.

In the Republic of China, counties (縣;) are found in the second level, though the streamlining of Taiwan Province has effectively made the county the first-level governmental level below the Republic of China central government.
In Imperial China, the county was a significant administrative unit because it marked the lowest level of the imperial bureaucratic structure — in other words, it was the lowest level that the government reached.

 Special Administrative Region   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
A Special Administrative Region (SAR) (Simplified Chinese: 特别行政区;; Traditional Chinese: 特別行政區;; pinyin: tè bié xíng zhèng qǖ;) is a political subdivision of the People's Republic of China.
The PRC has offered Taiwan a similar status to that of an SAR if it accepts mainland rule; however the Republic of China government refuses to accept the offer, and most polls indicate that only around 10% of the Taiwanese electorate support it.
The SARs of the PRC are empowered to conduct autonomous cultural and economic policies and as such are members of the WTO, even though they are not sovereign states, because they form their own customs areas and hence have their own international trade policies.
