The current population is more in line with 300 millions. If the Manchurian population growth to 2300 is no less than say the UK and Germany experience in the game - it'd be closer to 600 millions. If growth is larger than those currently not exactly pop-booming Euro powers, I think one can easily justify a population of up to a billion people.

So even if we don't go for the extremely high number in the E/CS or the strikingly low 200 million estimate, the mid-range offers enough for an aggressive and powerful nation capable of dominating a large portion of space despite a bit lower tech - it is certainly large compared to all the other major colonizers.
Manchuria: 272 million
Canton: 509 million
China (Rump): 379 million

Total: 1,160 million

Certainly about right.
