Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of China. Though it is bordered by China and technically controlled by China, it retains its own capitalist government. It has one of the best economies in the world. Culturally, Hong Kong is very similar to China, but it has a strong connection to the Western world as well, stemming from its time as a British territory. religious freedom is important in Hong Kong, so the country has become a mixture of all different religions practiced side by side. The most common are Buddhism and Taoism.
