Google Says Taiwan is a province
UPDATE: The Report a problem page for MAPS. You'll probably have to use the box.
UPDATE: To explain why sometimes you see it, sometimes you don't, recall that in the ROC, municipalities are the equal of provinces. Hence you won't see it for Taichung, Taipei, Tainan, K-town, and New Taipei City. Google's usage is inconsistent and silly, because there could never be a "Taiwan Province, Taiwan" but only a Taiwan Province of the ROC or PRC. Stupid and unnecessary, they should just go with "Taiwan."
UPDATE: Haha. They identify Kinmen as "Fujian Province, Taiwan". T'aint no such animal.
