China's 'Wall' Model

They did have Mongols, though.

Yes, but their wall was made irrelevant in the Ming dynasty when internal corruption lead to rebellion, causing the Ming dynasty to collaborate with the Manchus and allow them through the wall to help put down the rebellion. The Manchus then took over and started the Qing dynasty. Sound familiar?

if you build a really cool wall,
the tourist economy will soar,
and you'll be famous as a great civilization for centuries.

The Manchus also adopted a lot of the Chinese practices,language and customs.
The "Latinos" and "Syrians" not so much. The only bright spot is they'll start to eat each other for "their fair share" of tax money.
