Bubble tea has a formal name which is called "Boba tea". Kuomintang has an English translation of "Nationalist Party"

I usually hear it referred to as boba tea, although I did get the answer eventually. I definitely think that boba should be an accepted answer.

I wonder how Confucianism or Daoism would compare to Buddhism in Taiwan. I know that it’s notoriously hard to track well, but still.

Presumably both count as folk religions (correctly, in my view).

Aren't folk religions religions that are extremely localized, are more or less passed down via word of mouth and have an unclear history/no central book? I'm not sure I'd agree with calling them folk religions personally.

Writing something down doesn't make it true. According to the constitution of Venezuela, citizens have a right to employment, health care and freedom of expression. In reality, they don't. The United Nations can say whatever they want. They could say that the moon is made of cheese. It doesn't change the reality that Taiwan is an independent country.

It's not just the UN. Even in Taiwan's constitution it's also sitll a part of China.

+Citronnier Taiwan's constitution says that Taiwan is part of China, but that the ROC is the legitimate government. "China" is an entity greater than any party. Fun fact: Taiwan also holds the original copy of the Treaty of Nanjing, meaning that Taiwan legally owns Hong Kong. But that isn't real, just like whatever the UN says.

China as a region, not as a country. Taiwan claims itself as "the sole legitimate government over Mainland China and Taiwan."

The funny thing is that most Taiwanese would be happy to "relinquish their claim" to the mainland and simply concern themselves with their own independence. And if China simply admitted that a place with its own president, currency, military, immigration, passport, etc. was an independent country and let them live freely, then they could easily court Taiwan into their "diplomatic sphere". Instead, they threaten to "blow up Taiwan" and with their threats drive the majority of the people away from them into the arms of the USA and Japan.

It has its own system of government, currency, military, border controls, foreign policy. Saying it is not an independent country is really playing with semantics.

Highest mountain? Add 山 :D

Shan means mountain and Yu meaning Jade is the name of the mountain, so the question should ask for Yu rather than Shan

Could Kai Shek work for Chiang Kai Shek? Only Chiang works as of now. I know that the Chinese put the family name first but I feel like "Kai Shek" is enough to show that someone knows who the person is.
