Relations between Taiwan and China have been rocky, to say the least.  So what do you do when you have tenuous relationship with your neighbor?  Make with a real-world simulation of a potential war with them. From the Washington Post:

The council said there would also be simulation of a major natural disaster to test the island’s readiness in prevention and relief efforts.
