The harmonious society: what does it mean?

You often probably already heard that China is the harmonious society.
But what does it mean?

One China, 56 different people
The harmonious society means that 56 different people with their own identity work together to shape one China. These communities have their own traditions, their own culture, their own way of life, their own freedom. But they must all abide to the rule of one China. They respect the unity of China.
These different ethnic groups are China!

In fact many countries have a similar notion. 
But in most countries these different people originate from immigration. This is not the case in China.
In France we have "black, blanc, beurs". In South Africa, it is the "rainbow nation". In the US, it is the "melting pot"...
