Geography: Mongolia and Taiwan By: Blake Misfeldt and Kylie Chenoweth

Economy

Taiwan has the 5th largest economy in Asia and the 15th largest in the world.

As you can see from the chart above, Mongolia's economy is not as good as Taiwan's, but is on a steady incline.

Mongolia and Taiwan's Relations and History.

The republic of China did not recognize Mongolia as a country until 1945.

Outer Mongolia declared independence from the Qing Dynasty in 1911.

They were not recognized until the Civil War in China was over.

Taiwan takes up nearly a quarter of China's United Nations seats.

In 1206, Genghis Khan was able to unite and conquer the Mongols, forging them into a fighting force which went on to create the largest contiguous empire in world history, the Mongol Empire. The empire later fell in 1368.

The history of Taiwan dates back tens of thousands of years to the earliest known evidence of human habitation. The sudden appearance of a culture based on agriculture around 3000 BC is believed to reflect the arrival of the ancestors

Culture

The Culture of Mongolia has been heavily influenced by the Mongol nomadic way of life.

Their food is a great way to show their culture. This is a Mongolian dish. Food from Taiwan is typically spicy.

The culture of Taiwan is a blend of Confucianist Han Chinese and Taiwanese aborigines cultures, which are often perceived in both traditional and modern understandings.

The people of Taiwan have a more modern and urban culture and lifestyle compared to Mongolia.

Daily Life

In Mongolia from a very early age, kids were taught to respect their parents. They were taught survival skills - how to collect dry animal dung for firewood, how to milk cattle, how to use a bow and arrow, and how to cook and sew.

The most important things Mongol parents taught their children had to do with behavior.

The most popular traditional sport is wrestling.

Just outside of the cities you can still find nomads that have more traditional lifestyles. One third of the Mongolian poplulation lives like this.

While in Taiwan they enforce the principles of good conduct, practical wisdom, and proper social relationships.

Housing is mostly urban, with the majority of people living in modern apartment buildings.

In their homes, most people serve traditional Chinese foods, but there are still some other foods that they eat. This includes American and European foods.

Popular pastimes include singing with family or friends, watching television, mountain climbing, and world travel.
