China once didn't have a name. That's when we begin our journey in time. The people of this place were getting restless. The vilagers were always fighting and yelling, so thats when they decided to have a ruler. They tested all the men's strength in the vilage every one failed ,But when the people were about to give up chi''n he passed the test, So he became the ruler of this place so he named it China after his name, But after about a year the cidacins started to hate the idea of a king. Chi'in started to never went out side of his temple, But as he got older he went on a search for medicine to keep him alive forever. He died on his search. And thats how China got it's name.
