Avoiding Problems by Avoiding Decisions

My wife is from Taiwan and, yes they do call themselves Taiwanese.  They
have their own language, Taiwanese (original language).  Though most speak
Mandarin now.  The full name is Taiwan, R.O.C.  Mail any letter or package
there (which we have done many times, from USA), and it is to Taiwan, R.O.C.

I guess since New Zealand is an island, they are not a country?

It is as you say country OR region selector. Taiwan is an island, there is
country refering to itself as Taiwan, but there is a Something Something 
Republic of China, that is sometimes refered to by the only island it has 
control over, to avoid confusion with another Something Something Republic
