You could say it’s pretty much the case that if the word 'Mongol' is added to another word, it enhances that word’s meaning. Mongolian vodka. Mongolian steppe. The Mongolian stretch of the Trans-Siberian Railway. The Mongolian shepherd dog. These all sound stronger, more adventurous, and grander than, say, the standard version of each. And it’s not without reason.
There is just one nomadic family, with an average of 7-8 members, per 15 square kilometers.
Compare this to New York where, in the same area, 15,000 Manhattanites live.
