I have never visited China, so my impression could be conpletely off base. However from what I see in the media, I'd say they are very materialistic, advanced in technology, yet they do not value females as much as males. This is get from the fact that you can adopt a female baby from china so much more readily than males. But I don't know this is purely from someone who has never been to China. Or had any contact with them at all.
