The Mayan Empire If I had to choose to live in the Aztec, Inca, or Mayan empire, I would choose the Mayan empire. I would live most happily as a Mayan. There were less people in the Mayan Empire than there were in the Aztec or Inca. Being that there were less people, the Mayans were overall much more peaceful. They also did many creative things. For example, they created lots of art and stargazed. The Mayans developed a number and math system, and math is my favorite subject!
