My point was that the main pressure on China leadership is population pressure - but the country is destined to absorb the increase without looking outside its borders to expand into. China is first China - and only secondarily provincial. When problem arise in the rural hinterlands, the people pack up and go to the cities. Far more are entering the city work forces than the USA would consider an unemployment crisis. There is little thought about expanding - it is all about making the internal system work. That is why they had a limiting child policy and realize they can breed themselves into total collapse. They have resources and a huge workforce as assets, but look first internally for answers and not outside.
Breaking up into smaller pieces does not answer the basic dynamic.
