Shakespearean = adjective
tragedy = noun

People like China because it promotes the Orwellian culture .
Orwellian = adjective
culture = noun
China is a proper noun, not a proper adjective. China doesn’t describe anything/anyone.

There are also times when the word after it is not a noun.
To know if it is a proper adjective, just look for a common adjective and insert the word you have chosen between the c.a. and the noun (remove the remaining words).
