 Republic of China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Republic of China was a founding member of the United Nations and held China's seat on the Security Council until 1971, when it was expelled by General Assembly Resolution 2758 and replaced in all UN organs with the government of the People's Republic of China.
From its retreat from mainland China in 1949 until the 1970s, the military's primary mission had been to "retake the mainland." Given its current mission of defense against invasion, the ROC military has begun to shift emphasis from the traditionally dominant army to the air force and navy.
China at the time was largely agrarian with most of the land, and thus the wealth, concentrated in a wide pyramid structure – much of the land was owned by a few very wealthy landowners with the general population tenant farmers who did not own land.

 Gateway Pundit: China Facing Gas Crisis
China, the world's second-largest energy consumer, aims to increase the use of gas to 8 percent of its energy mix by 2010 from 3 percent now, in part to help clear skies choked by smoke from coal-burning generators.
China has a centrally-orchestrated energy policy, lots of bicycles and other efficient transportation, not too many SUV's that I know of, no robber-baron oil companies to contend with, and isn't the White Devil of the Muslim world.
China can be less efficient because they cannot afford good machines (and not as good environmental laws and lax enforcement even if they have).
