I as emperor shall establish the SONG DYNASTY after the fall of the TANG DYNASTY
But how? we are a small kingdom, the much larger TANG DYNASTY was overthrown by a rebellion made by AN LUSHAN. How are we going to make anything new? We know nothing!
Shut up peasant! They gave us lots to start with such as BUDDHISM as a religion, the CIVIL SERVICE EXAM for a stronger government, and agricultural improvements such as the EQUAL FIELD SYSTEM and FAST RIPENING RICE. So calm down!
You're right, I should calm down!
Meanwhile in the future...
We have made so much progress! We have made the new class of intelligent SCHOLAR GENTRY, added the COMPASS on our JUNKS, made the FLYING CASH system for our merchants, and made the WOOD BLOCK PRINTING system.
Not to mention the creation of ZEN BUDDHISM and NEO-CONFUCIANISM
What?! we're gonna die!
My emperor, the Mongols are in the city!
It's hard to walk anywhere with the FOOT BINDING done on me!
