    Europe and China represent two extreme ends on the spectrum of political cohesion. Europe is an example of an extreme lack of political cohesion whereas China is an example of extreme abundance of political cohesion. Both regions have seen period of both hegemony and Balkanization, Europe had the Roman Empire, and China had its period of Warring States, but both periods are exceptions to their respective regions. Europe is generally falling apart into smaller chunks whereas China is generally coalescing into a bigger whole.

    China may eventually do so because they were making a lot of enemies. Some countries pulled out their factories from China. Japan transferred many of their factories to the Philippines and Vietnam.
