For example, the steps in Mongolia don't have anywhere as much edible plants as India does, so (from a nutritional perspective) I would guess that it would be easier to live on a plant-based diet in India than Mongolia. However is someone were to live in such a botanically harsh country, is it wrong for them to eat meat to sustain their body?

Interesting that you use Mongolia as an example. See Diet of Mongolia by Weston Price. While it appears that most Mongolians traditionally eat a LOT of meat; wheat, millet, rice and potatoes as well as dairy milk and various kinds of cheese, and more recently vegetables, are all readily available there.

So the answer to your question is that if you are a vegetarian, you can be vegetarian anywhere, including Mongolia.

Mongolians have traditionally not eaten bread, vegetables or fruit but most do eat these things now. Some Mongols still refuse to eat vegetables “for health reasons”. While in in 2005, you could find a decent vegetarian meal only at a mediocre Indian curry house, today there are dozens of vegetarian restaurants to choose from in Mongolia.

Diet is, for most people, a matter of habit.
