China, 2000 years ago. Loyang has risen to become the capital of the Han Dynasty and one of the four main capitals of ancient China. In the booming economic climate, the people of this flourishing city require an improved supply of basic foodstuffs. These are supplied by local farmers who grow wheat, pumpkins, turnips, cabbage, beans and leeks in their fields. After each harvest, the farmers regularly meet at the gates of Loyang to trade their produce. The most successful farmer will be the one who makes the most progress on the Path of Prosperity within the given timeframe.
