Taiwan is administered by the Republic of China (ROC) and but in practice operates as a separate country. However, this has not hindered its progress in becoming a technological and manufacturing power, even rivaling its larger neighbours Japan and China. Taiwan is split into five regions: Central Taiwan (includes the Central Mountains, central western coastal area, scenic Sun Moon Lake and Taichung city); Eastern Taiwan (contains Taiwan's most striking natural scenery, including the famous Taroko Gorge (Tailuge Gorge) and the cities of Hualien and Taitung); Northern Taiwan (home to the capital, Taipei, and the high-tech hub, Hsinchu); Southern Taiwan (home to Taiwan's second largest city, Kaohsiung, and oldest city, Tainan); The Outlying Islands (includes Green Island, Kinmen (Quemoy), Matsu, Orchid Island and Penghu). Many people have a perception of Taiwan as being a land of IT and High Tec factories. This may be the case arounf the Taipei area but the country has spectacular natural scenery and many splendid national parks such as Kenting National Park and Shei-pa National Park.

CIA - The World Factbook -- Taiwan

In 2000, Taiwan underwent its first peaceful transfer of power from the Nationalist to the Democratic Progressive Party. Throughout this period, the island prospered and became one of East Asia's economic "Tigers." The dominant political issues continue to be the relationship between Taiwan and China - specifically the question of eventual unification - as well as domestic political and economic reform.
