.58 Muslim China

According to 'official' data, at least 100 million Muslims live in China, and some of them are of Turkic Central Asian origin. This is one other thing to consider when thinking that 'all Chinese are the same'.

China is bigger than Europe. Its population is approximately three times that of the European Union. On the Chinese continent, some 56 different ethnic groups -many of them with mutually uninteligible languages - share life, space, food and culture.

One Party to rule them all, though!
