Hi, I’m China. I hold one-fifth of the world’s population.
I live in the eastern hemisphere, next to the Pacific Ocean
and north of the Indian Ocean. I often have to deal with
the invaders to the north of me, for example the Mongols.
I grow many crops on my land, which improve the health
of my people. Allow me to give you a brief story of my life.

Ming Empire

Who is in control of me is constantly changing. Back in
1211, I was transferred from the hands of the Song dynasty
into those of the Yuan dynasty with the invasion of
Chinggis Khan. Later, I was ruled by the Ming dynasty
that drove out the Mongols. In about 1600, under the Ming
dynasty, I was doing very well. The Great Wall was rebuilt
on my northern border. Then came the Qing dynasty.
My population fell and my borders were expanded.
With the introduction of new crops from the New World
things started looking up again.

Treaties with Russia,
Improving trade routes and crops,
Growing population,
Rebuilding the Great Wall
Pacifying northern barbarians,
Invaders from the north,
