China is called "Zhong Guo" in Mandarin. The first character zhng means "central" or "middle" while gu means "country" or "region". The term is commonly translated into English as "the Central Kingdom", based on the archaic meaning of the term Zhong Guo as "center part [of the world]". Beijing, its Capital and Shanghai the largest city of China then follow by Tianjin.

The greater part of the country is mountainous. Its principal ranges are the Tien Shan, the Kunlun chain, and the Trans-Himalaya. In the southwest is Tibet, which China annexed in 1950. The Gobi Desert lies to the north. China proper consists of three great river systems: the Yellow River (Huang He), 2,109 mi (5,464 km) long; the Yangtze River (Chang Jiang), the third-longest river in the world at 2,432 mi (6,300 km); and the Pearl River (Zhu Jiang), 848 mi (2,197 km) long.
