Mongolia rests in the nether region of several worlds. Officially Asia, but with many Caucasian infusions from their neighbors to the north. Inhabited, but nearly as sparsely as any nation on Earth. Its people live a rugged, albeit fascinating life, in great contact with the lands, though they're not always kind to them. In vast desert sections lacking all but the toughest vegetation, the people's livestock become their life and living. All aspects of live revolve around, and come from their animal brethren. They still follow the nomadic ways of their ancestors, moving everything they own several times a year to follow the resources.
