Han China, or 漢朝, as the Han Chinese call it, is an East Asian world power. Extending throughout most of OTL China, the Han Dynasty is a powerful nation that dominates East Asian trade and geopolitics.

The Han Dynasty is also the successor to the Qin Dynasty, which was overthrown by the Han Dynasty's military leadership in the year ??? BC.


China has a rich history divided into dynastic periods. The first truly Chinese Dynasty, which emerged after the Neolithic Period, was the Xia Dynasty, which was then followed by the Shang and powerful Zhou Dynasties. These empires built up a rich, highly populated China with a distinct culture. Following the collapse of the Zhou Dynasty, however, a number of Warring States seized power over various sized principalities.
