Boasting a civilization of over 5000 years, China is one of the four ancient countries in the world. Since Xia Empire was established in 21 BC, the society experienced Shang Dynasty, Western Dynasty, Spring and Autumn Period, and the slave system. Starting from the period of Warring States in 475 BC, the society developed from Qin Dynasty, Han Dynasty, Three Kingdoms, Jin Dynasty, Northern and Southern Dynasties, Sui Dynasty, Tang Dynasty, the period of Five Dynasties and Ten States, Song Dynasty, Liao Dynasty, Jin Dynasty, Yuan Dynasty, Ming Dynasty, and Qing Dynasty. But from the Dynasty of Qin to Qing China remained to be a feudal society. It was then reduced to be a semi-colonized and semi-feudal society after the Opium War in 1840 initiated by imperialist invaders. It was not until 1911 that the rule of Qing Dynasty was overthrown by Revolution 1911 led by Sun Yet-sen. On October 1st, 1949, the Communist Party of China with Mao Zedong as the Chairman united Chinese people and founded the People's Republic of China.
