Here's one of the New York Times' odder dispatches from China:

The Chinese Cyberspace Administration is the government agency in charge of Internet policy over there, which you can rightly take to mean Internet censorship.

Turns out they have their own anthem:

Devotedly keeping watch over the space every day, / Taking up our mission as the sun rises in the east.

And then it ends strong:

An Internet power: Tell the world that the Chinese dream is uplifting China. / An Internet power: I represent my nation to the world.

Watch the whole thing here, translated by ProPublica:
