Back when they were, was something different?

Was their culture more influenced by .... oh, I dunno, a Religion of some sort?

Did they have fewer barriers to Free Trade?

Were they more energetic and willing to travel the world to make a fortune?

Did they have a Colonial Empire full of slaves under their thumbs?

Hmmm...
