In addition to having a semipresidential constitutional structure, each of these countries also represents a relatively unusual case of democratization: Taiwan is one of East Asia�s famous �tiger� economies and the world�s only Sinitic democracy, but faces an ongoing crisis of nationhood; Mongolia is one of the few unambiguous examples of a successful transition to democracy and a market economy in the postcommunist world; while East Timor is both East Asia�s poorest nation and its newest democracy. As such, each represents an important test case for assessing the effect of semi-presidentialism upon democratic development.
