The country – minus the Isle of Man - has been discovered in the little known Chongqing province in the heart of the country.

There has been no comment from Beijing so far, but it’s believed that a fake Greece and a fake Portugal are also being developed somewhere in China, and will be ready for sale to the European Union later this year.
