JCC: Taiping Rebellion - The Qing Dynasty (1850)

Committee Introduction

The Qing dynasty has ruled China for almost 200 years. In recent years, however, the dynasty and China have faced substantial challenges, including natural disasters and economic turmoil. Farmers and peasants were disproportionately affected by these issues. Now that the Heavenly Kingdom is trying to take over the government and to convert people to Taiping Christianity, this committee is tasked with making sure power remains in the correct hands and that, in the face of these issues, the moral and political wellbeing of the country is protected for decades to come.
