Mongolia is a country with extensive landscape which is populated mainly by Mongolian-speaking people. Other Mongolic-speaking people live in Inner Mongolia and other scattered lands in China plus Buryatia and Kalmykia in Russia. After a certain time playing a major role in world politics starting from the 1206's establishment of the Mongol Empire which conquered most of Eurasia, Mongol identity and its achievements became less popular until the only Mongolic-speaking people left were invaded by Manchu Qing dynasty by mid- and late-1600s. Course of events following the fall of the Qing dynasty, resulted in Mongol people's self-governance of modern Mongolia by the beginning of 20-th century. Throughout 20-th century, Mongolia had a diverse path in the history as well as shaping of its administrative divisions.
