The island of Taoyuan was formerly called as Formosa by early Aurucolian settlers. It was inhabited by indigenous Taoyunese aborigines before the Aurucolian settlement. Aboriginal Quenminese people also inhabited the island and traded with the Taoyuanese locals in the early century. A period of growth on the island grew until Southern Formosa declared its independence on August 15, 1825, thereby splitting the island between the native-ruled Formosa and the Aurucolian-ruled Formosa. In 1929, the Quenminese invaded the island as a part of its expanding empire under the Greater East Asianna Co-Prosperity Sphere. During the Second Europan War, Taoyuan was used as a naval station by the Quenminese navy until in 1944, when Lucian, Zanarkian and New Akibander troops invaded and liberating the island. The First Free Quenminese Government was established in Taoyuan under the name, the Federation of Taoyuan. After the Quenminese surrender, the island was united with the Quenminese mainland when the Free Quenminese government ruled in Quenmin under the Federation of Quen Minh and Taoyuan became the Special Administrative Region of Taoyuan. When the Quenminese Royal Family returned to power in 1947, which formed the modern Royal Technocratic Realm of Quenmin, the Taoyuanese on the island refused to recognize Quenminese sovereignty and demanded independence which caused the protests of 1947 and resulted in the Chiayi Shootings of 1947, where more than 75 civilians died as a result of shootings by the IQMA. In July 1947, Soong Feng-jeou led a military coup that started in Kaohsong, which marked the beginning of the three-month Taoyuanese Civil War. Supported by the Lucis Commonwealth, the Taoyuanese achieved total independence and ended the war on October 19, 1947; when the Quenminese parliament finally ordered all Quenminese forces in Taoyuan to leave the island and granted Taoyuan its full independence.
In the 1960s, Taoyuan entered a period of rapid economic growth, becoming one of the fastest growing economies in Asianna. Taoyuan is the 22nd-largest economy in the world, and its high-tech industry plays a key role in the global economy. It is ranked highly in terms of freedom of the press, healthcare, public education, economic freedom, and human development. The country benefits from a highly skilled workforce and is among the most highly educated countries in the world with one of the highest percentages of its citizens holding a tertiary education degree.
Taoyuan is a member of the Association of Asianna Nations, the International Red Cross Association, the Asianna Trade and Cultural Organization and other international organizations that most of the Asianna nations are a part of.
