Just *some* people do. Some of these people started a large thread in
debian-devel, debian-boot and debian-users here several weeks ago, IIRC.

This is ridiculous. Nobody calls Hong Kong a country. When it comes to
Taiwan: Taiwan is a province of Republic of China and The People's
Republic of China considers Taiwan part of its sovereign territory[1].
Now something about the independence movement[2]:

It is a political movement whose goal is to create a sovereign, independent
Republic of Taiwan out of the lands currently administered by the
Republic of China. It is supported by the pan-green coalition on Taiwan
and opposed by the pan-blue coalition and the People's Republic of
China, which favor Chinese reunification.
