China is the country with the most population. China has one of the worlds oldest continuous civilizations and is a very interesting country to learn about. It is exciting when you read what it has gone through these past few centuries and millennium. The climate of China is similar, in range, and distribution to that of the Continental United States. Temperate climates prevail, with desert and semiarid regions in the western interior and a small area of tropical climate in the extreme southeast. China’s climates however tend to be more continental and more extreme. The Asian Monsoon exerts the primary control on China’s climate.
