The Republic of Taiwan (Traditional Chinese: 臺灣共和國; Simplified Chinese: 台湾共和国; Pinyin: Táiwān Gònghégúo; Pe̍h-oē-jī: Tâi-oân Kiōng-hô-kok) is a goal of increasing supporters of Taiwan independence in creating a Taiwanese state unambiguously separate from China, covering (at most) the areas currently controlled by the Republic of China (i.e., Taiwan, Penghu, Quemoy and Matsu Islands).
