Additionally, it was the first Chinese government to identify and obtain a permanent navy. Social and cultural practices, economy, and civilization are the main ideas in this section. However, civilization includes the use of paper or bank money, use of gunpowder, the idea of trade, science, movable type printing, and engineering (Ingram).
The issue of society and culture exists since the dynasty was in an era of administrative sophistication. Clubs were available to make people enjoy themselves apart from attending education and religious services in schools and temples. On the other hand, the dynasty was well off in terms of economy.
