These characters are from China (in its various forms). Harry Turtledove uses the older Wade-Giles system for most names, rather than the Pinyin system which has been in use since 1981. Thus, in Turtledove's works, the name of the first leader the People's Republic of China is spelled Mao Tse-Tung, rather than Mao Zedong, which is otherwise the "standard" spelling.
