This is terrific: a colorful little map that breaks China down into nine distinct regions. Probably a bit too concise for real China experts, but I found the shorthand revelatory and useful.
And here, the map’s creator slots the regions one-by-one into a list of the world’s most populous countries. Man that is a lot of people.
Here’s the North American analogue for all of Snarkmarket’s Chinese readers! “Ecotopia”—talk about shorthand—but I love it.
