  • Ottoman Empire Survey •Economy: Solid •Stability: Excellent •Styles: Modern
  • Imagine if we hadn't been able to blast our way into Constantinople...
  • The Mughal Empire (1526-1857)

  • Once the Mongols had been forced out, Confucianism and the civil service system resurfaced. The culture and economy thrived, but eventually China stopped its overseas ventures and went into isolation to preserve ancient traditions.
  • The Russian Empire (1600-1700)
  • The Ottomans captured the Byzantine capital of Constantinople by blasting holes in the walls. With this as a power base, they were able to conquer and modernize new lands, improving life greatly in the empire and allowing advancements to be made.
  • The Japanese Empire (1600-1800)
  • Well, we don't try to sail armies across like you do.
  • The result of Muslim forces invading Hindu territory, the Mughal empire was a cross between Islamic culture and Hindu culture, placing members of both religions in government jobs and tolerating both religions, unlike the earlier sultans.
  • Peter the Great
  • While the world was modernizing, Russia was still medieval. Peter the Great focused on westernizing the country during his rule. A Byzantine-based culture was needed to unite an ethnically diverse population. Under Peter the Great, Russia gained power.
  • This place needs some modernization. Time to build up an empire.
  • Halt! Who goes there?
  • Japan was well-protected by the surrounding sea. They could learn from neighboring countries, but they were too far away to launch invasions. As a result, they could accept or reject foreign influences as needed, sometimes rejecting them to preserve their culture.
  • How do you get over here when we can't?
