    Yeah, but all of it up to 1945 was basically just them getting their asses kicked by invaders. As it turns out when your entire population consists of subjugated serfs you don't end up with the best pool to conscript soldiers from.

        That's not really accurate (the part about the entire population being serfs, or the year). The various dynasties have fielded some of the largest, most powerful professional armies in world history. They also invented gunpowder and the cruise missile.

        There have been professional warrior, artisan, scholar, and various other social classes in China for more than 4,000 years according the historical record.

        The first time China was under foreign invader rule was 1279, when Kublai Khan established the Yuan Dynasty. China reestablished sovereign rule during the 300 off years of the Ming, and then in 1616 the Manchu invaded, establishing the Ching which persisted to the Republic era (nationalist and then Communist).
