Confucianism is not really a religion so much as it is just traditional Chinese philosophy, beliefs, and values, as described by Confucius. It blends with all other religions in China and is sort of just taken for granted as common knowledge or conventional wisdom. and though Confucius is revered as a great teacher he's not really properly worshipped.

that was my first try aswell. Because of the description nickname, my mind went there. And yea king is/could be considered a nickname aswell, but it used so often, it nearly feels as a synonym/title.

Not saying the answer should be changed or anything. Just explaining how my mind worked and how a certain description can make you think in a specific direction.

It is more accurate to say that China "recognizes" these religions rather than "allows". They tolerate them as long as followers play by the rules. China does not allow the free practice of religion the way the US does (or claims to do).

The metatarsal one tripped me up. I kept trying different toes thinking they were the toe bones, but looked it up afterwards and it's attached to the toe bones but definitely in the foot and not the toe.
