Mongolia, officially the Empire of the Great Khan, is a powerful nation in Asia. It controls the vast majority of the continent and is one of the world's superpowers. Mongolia established itself as a proper nation in the 1200s (1500s AXC) under the leadership of the great Temujin, also known as Genghis Khan. He invaded and took over Eastern Turkestan, Korea, Siberia, and Japan. His advance westward, however, was halted by Greece. Khan then focused on moving south and fought a giant war with the Han Dynasty of China. Genghis Khan died in 1229 (1565 AXC) and was succeeded by his eldest son Jochi. However, he was killed in 1233 (1569) by Han nationalists, marking the start of the Long War, in which the Han continuously rebelled. Jochi was succeeded by his brother Ogedei. Ogedei was perhaps the most successful in suppressing the Han. He signed a pact with the Indusian Emperor wherein Indusia would take all Han rebels that the Khanate deported. This greatly reduced the rebel population in Mongolia. However, the Indusians would begin smuggling Han descendents back to the Han homeland and aided them in armed rebellion. The Han eventually won independence with Greek and Indusian support, reducing the influence of the Khanate. In 1637 (1973 AXC), the power shifted away from the Mongolian homeland and to the Zunghar Khanate. Khung Khan was elected Great Khan in the Kurultai. The Zunghar Khans bettered relations with Indusia and Greece. Mongolia eventually fought successfully with them in the two Panpolems and is today part of the Kryopolem. Mongolia has reached the Moon and Mars, as has Greece.
