What would Mongolia's fate during the 20th and 21st centuries have been had it remained part of China? Would it have become Sinified as a result of large-scale movement of Han Chinese settlers into Xinjiang? Would there have been any other significant effects on Mongolia?

@HackneyedScribe @YouLoveMeYouKnowIt @Everbody else Any thoughts on this?

LOL! :D

Even if Mongolia would have been part of China, it would have still been separated from Beijing by a relatively long distance.

LOL! Just kidding. Probably not much would have changed. Mongolia was a communist nation until the early 1990s, not much change then being part of communist China. Probably not much in the way of industrialization either, since Mongolia has nothing to industrialize. It would probably be one of many undeveloped provincial backwaters of China similar to the Western Mohammedan provinces.

Mongolia would have become much more Chinese in this scenario, no? After all, China certainly didn't have any shortage of Han Chinese settlers.

Well, Inner Mongolia, that is still part of China, has a Han majority. However, this was the case since the Qing dynasty that controlled both Inner and Outer Mongolia, though Inner Mongolia was much, much more Sinicized during their rule.

Certainly would have a more predominant Han culture. Similar to the Romanized provinces of the Western Empire.

Yeah, I was thinking of having the Chinese move onto Sinicizing Outer Mongolia after they are done Sinicizing Inner Mongolia.

Britain wasn't very Romanized, was it?
