Guess which one is the socialist country?

You have two choices
1) España or
2) China?

Even with elaborated adjectives attached to their official names, say RD Congo, aka: République Démocratique du Congo (formerly know as Zaire and has its fair share of bloodshed as I write, with the ethnic groups in the East; which one can blame the former colonial Belgium), or Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), democracy or the public in “re-“public are usually scarce commodity if not totally non-existant. So enter this massive workers’ strike in Spain, offically still a “kingdom” as it is “Reino de España” which spreads across continents in its institutions, including the Instituto Cervantes Pekín (Beijing, China), which somehow mobilised the staffers in Beijing to stand in solidarity and participate in their day off with their counterparts in Europe and elsewhere. What I wonder is how many of the Chinese students who are taking classes at Cervantes would ponder the meaning of workers’ rights in our own country with those in Spain? Would the Chinese government allow for a regional workers’ strike, let alone a nation-wide one?

Mind you, China is officially know as People’s Republic of China!

And the 1.3 billion$’s answer is…?
