I don't understand the routing table entry. How does a country have a next
hop?
How do five autonomous companies with hundreds of millions of hosts, each,
and separate administrative control, share an ASN with each other and
hundreds of other companies with only millions of users each?

When you say "they take care of further distribution," who are "they?"
And whence do they distribute?  Do you require all of China to have a
single access connection?

Does Taiwan share that block, or get their own?
