Historical overview


Unified Earth Government


China is a large nation in East Asia on Earth. It is part of the Unified Earth Government and holds a great amount of sway over its decision-making.[1]


China is one of Earth's oldest civilizations, being thousands of years old by the time humanity had started colonizing other planets.[1]

In 2004, Dana Awbrey fled to China after an artificial intelligence called the Operator thrown into the past via a Forerunner artifact expressed a desire to kill her.[1][2]

Interstellar humanity[edit]

When humanity first began to colonize other worlds, China was one of the most enthusiastic and effective colonizing forces. Many of the vital resource colonies that would eventually supply the UNSC war effort were initiated by Chinese efforts.[1]


The Great Wall was in the country and passed through Jinshanling.[3] A train line reached Hangzhou in the country and Xi Hu (translated to "West Lake") was also in the country.[4]


Society and culture[edit]

Junjie Chen receives a message from his father in China.

China is an international superpower. The United Nations Space Command has long taken an interest in Asia for no better reason than its vast size. China has always held a great amount of sway in the UEG, and its position on the world stage did not change when the UNSC gained more power during the Human-Covenant War. China is overcrowded.[1]

Beijing, a city in the country, is known as a "big media-advertising town". Most people on Earth that work in media or advertising, especially journalists and photographers, live in either Beijing or New York City in the URNA.[5]
