China is one of Earth's oldest civilizations, being thousands of years old by the time humanity had started colonizing other planets.
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.
Society and culture
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.
The country's capital, Beijing, 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.
