"夫君子之行：靜以修身，儉以養德；非淡泊無以明志，非寧靜無以致遠。" - 諸葛亮
One should seek serenity to cultivate the body, thriftiness to cultivate the morals. If you are not simple and frugal, your ambition will not sparkle. If you are not calm and cool, you will not reach far. - Zhugeliang

How about Yuan dynasty? China (under Mongol) was the most military powerful civilization on earth...
I think that Warhead might have had something to say about that before...
Yuan in reality did not control most of the other khanates, and it's debatable if that would make China necessarily the most militarily powerful even so (as it would probably be considered credit for the Mongols). Influencewise and relative to the world I would say that it was during the Tang.

Not to mention, for most of Yuan, starting from 1306 onwards, the Delhi Sultanate could rival it in both population and productivity, just like how the Roman Empire rivaled the Han even if the former might not have been nearly as powerful.
