The World According to CCP

In the guest room of my parent's house, my dad hung a wall map of China that was printed in Beijing. It's a pretty large map with English and Chinese labels. Of course, Taiwan is shown as just another province; that was expected from a map from China. What was surprising was that Korea was shown as one country with Pyongyang as its capital city. No mention of "North" or "South" nor was the DMZ marked, and Seoul was just another dot on the map. The map was dated 1990 so there's really no excuse for this other than pure communist propaganda. I wonder if newer maps from China still have a "unified" Korea.
