''Japan Earthquake Update''


Taiwan is officially known as the Republic of China (ROC).  Founded in 1912, the ROC is Asia's first constitutional republic.  The ROC government, led by the Kuomintang (KMT), relocated to Taiwan in 1949 when the Chinese Communist Party established the People's Republic of China (PRC) on the mainland.  It has since exercised jurisdiction over Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, Matsu, and numerous other islets.  The two sides of the Taiwan Strait have since been governed as separate territories.
