Googled it, apparently it's banned in China for recognizing Tibet as an independent country. :\

It wasn't actually this Football Manager game, it was Football Manager 2005, which banned in china because it listed both Tibet and Hong Kong as countries. They said something along the lines of it "threatening national sovereignty".
