Qin annexed the lands of the other feudal rulers and created over thirty provinces, putting in order the fords and passes, relying on the steep places and barrier points, and stationing armed men to guard the region.

Qin put an end to the Warring States period and made itself ruler of the empire, but it did not change its ways or reform its system of government, which shows that the means employed to seize an empire differ from those needed to guard it.

 China: Qin Dynasty
The Qin were one of the Seven Kingdoms (Han, Wei, Chao, Qi, Yan, Qin, and Chu) that carried out a power struggle for mastery of the empire around 300 B.C.E. The king of the Zhou dynasty was still the imperial spiritual leader, but could not undertake anything against the independent princedoms.
The Qin advantage lay in its border positioning; they were forced from the beginning to defend themselves against barbarians in the west, and later, after subjugating them, were able to extend their territory toward the west.
No other dynasty was judged so harshly by the traditional, Confucian-influenced historiography: the emperor of the Qin supposedly buried his opposition alive, prescribed a mass burning of Confucian texts and writings, compelled farmers to service in the construction of his palaces and the Great Wall, and introduced a hard, legalistic regime.
