The world’s most populous country, China is also the third largest in terms of area. Politically, the State has moved away from the Maoist politics of the 1950s and 1960s and economic growth has been dramatic leading to its development into the world’s second largest economy in 2011. China has been widely criticised for its human rights standards, including with regards to the high number of executions carried out every year, restrictions on freedom of expression and suppression of dissent.
