Geography has played a crucial role in the expansion of society that can be traced back to the birth of civilization. During early development, settling near a stable water supply and fertile soil supplied the basic necessities for cultivating life into what we know today. While geographic factors will always play a vital role in the sustainability and advancement of society, during the multicultural empires, there is a shift in the role geography played. The function changed from supplying basic human need to becoming a pathway for multicultural and intercontinental development for both the Persian and Chinese Empires. Although geographical circumstances were measurably different between Persia and China, both empires used these factors to their advantage and were able to flourish and grow into massive dynasties.

The idea of a federalist government is great, however, it has some downsides as well. Some advantages of federalism include keeping the government closer to the people, where states have the freedom and authority to make government decisions to local preferences. Federalism also allows local differences to reflected in the state and local government policy and reduce conflicts, this reduces the friction between interests and lessens conflict. The independent subnational governments allow for flexibility and experimentation, where successful policy innovations in one state can be adopted by other states and also the federal government. The achievement of at least some national goals is made easier by the participation of independent subnational
International relations exist in a state of anarchy. In this system, there is no central government, no written code of laws, and no standard for how to behave. Without laws, there is no definitive explanation for states’ behavior.
