On November 26, 1924, the Mongolian People's Republic was established. In February 1945, the Soviet Union, the United States and Britain signed the "Yalta Agreement" which provides that "Outer Mongolia (Mongolian People's Republic of) status must be maintained." Renamed in 1992 to Mongolia.

Economic and Cultural Customs
Mongolia has vast natural pastures, accounting for 83% of the country's area; the per capita grassland area is largest in the world. Mongolia is a country dominated by animal husbandry. Horse, cattle, camels, roro cars are the main means of transport. Livestock products are mainly leather, boots, harnesses, blankets, and wool. Dairy products, tea, and mutton are favorite Mongolian foods, usually eating meat without chopsticks or a fork, but with the meat held in the left hand, while the right hand holds a knife to eat.

Wrestling, horse racing, and archery are the three favorite sports of ethnic Mongolians. Each year's Nadam Fair, on July 11, is rich in national characteristics and collective entertainment.

Dances and music include the traditional Mongolian folk musical instruments, piano and wood, about 1 meter long, covered with horse hide or sheepskin, with a piano bar carved at the top of a Tau-shaped decoration. The rhythm is free and the melody soothing, giving an independent, natural beauty like the face.
