The Imperium of Japan in its current state was founded on May 15th, 20XX. The cataclysmic war that lead to the almost total collapse of the world had left Japan in a weakened state, unable to project its power like the Chinese or other powers in the region were able to, and left nearly defenseless as the Americans had too many problems at home to defend Japan against their mutual enemies. The Americans sense of cultural inclusion had rubbed off on the Imperium. Empress Hoshiko having attended Yale University, has a much more Americanized outlook upon society than some of the older government officials in the Imperium.

Under Hoshiko's leadership Japan had changed from an exclusionary society to one in which foreigners were welcomed, the change to English as the official language medium allowed for those of Korean, Taiwanese, and Singaporean descent to not feel as though they were being subjected to Japanification as had happened in the world wars so long ago. Joseon was the first territory to be included into the Imperium, followed by Hong Kong and Taiwan. All three held democratic referendums to join the Imperium. Singapore held their own referendum after piracy was cleared out of the Malacca Strait, a strategic waterway, this was a top priority to the Imperium.

On May 26th, 20XX, the Imperium came under attack by the Republic of China, under the guise of rejoining the "occupied" territories of Hong Kong and Taiwan to an alleged "One China" policy, even though there were three nations claiming mainland China. The Imperium found itself under attack by nuclear weapons from the Republic of China on May 31st, Seven Million Japanese died that day. Thanks to assistance from France and Tikal, only a few hundred thousand more Japanese died due to radiation sickness, the vast majority of those exposed to the poisonous levels of radiation being treated in Tikalian medical bays, rescuing them from the death sentence brought upon them by the cowardly attack. Soon after the Twin Chinas collapsed, most likely due to the internal struggles that had plagued the nations and forced them into conflict with the Imperium in the first place.

Two months afterwards, while the nation was still cleaning up and recovering, the Hawaiians began a propaganda campaign against the Imperium, claiming that the Imperium had plans to obliterate Hawaii and genocide its people, luckily for the Imperium, Hawaiians continual efforts at expansionism, ironically one of the key grievances against the Imperium, had landed Hawaii into hot water with the American continent and led to their downfall. History will have multiple perspectives as to the fate of the Hawaiian people, the most likely was a biological weapon being accidentally dispersed amongst its people, others made claiming of Hawaiians being raptured to another place. Whatever the true story, another enemy of the Imperium was eliminated.

The Imperium spent the next few years quietly rebuilding, until the Russian Empire attacked the Imperium's neighbor of the Amur Republic. The Imperium working with SEATO dispatched a defense force against the hostile invasion force. a quick peace was reached and a DMZ line was set up. Less than a week later hoever, the peace treaty was broken and the Russian Empire invaded yet again, this time the Imperium being forced to withdraw from their superior numbers until Tikal and SEATO reinforcements showed up to push them back once more. unfortunately a diplomatic faux pas at the time created a rift between the Principality of of Shanghai and The Imperium, as the mere thought of genocide was a very sensitive subject within the Imperium. Eventually SEATO and the Russian Empire made a peace agreement, and the Imperium returned to its focus of the expansion of the Siak Republic.

Months later, the European nation of Sparta set up a military installation only a few hundred miles away from the Malacca Strait, this made the naturally wary Imperium worried and led to even further incursion into the Indian Ocean, which was soon met with two very different responses. A random attack from the Nordic Kingdom crippled the Imperium helicopter carrier Hiei and sunk the corvette Tone. The African League had concerns of the Imperium's incursion into their vincity, and a diplomatic meeting was requested from the African League. Upon the collapse of Sparta the Imperium's feared were quelled and a peaceful negotiation of transfer of the East Indian Islands to the African League occurred.

Shortly after the attack by the Nordic Kingdom, which put the Imperium in a state of war, Persia attempted to send a massive fleet through the Malacca Strait unannounced with an aggressive posture, including electronic jamming. The Imperium fleet nearby attempted to communicate but the Persians did not wish to contact the Imperium Ministry of Foreign Affairs and left shortly afterwards. Within a week the Persians formed the Indian Ocean Comission, which the Imperium placed a formal request to join, and was instead met with a blockade of Imperium military and commercial vessels within the Indian Ocean by the Persian navy. This crisis is ongoing.

[center][b][size=7]Important Imperium Cities[/size][/b][/center]
[center] [/center]
[center]OOC: WIP mostly just giving images of the important cities in the nation[/center]
[center] [/center]
[center][size=6][b]Neo Tokyo[/b][/size][/center]
[center]Neo Tokyo is the Capital of the Imperium, holding a population of nearly 16 million people within the Greater Metropolis Region. Neo Tokyo is build near and upon the rubble of the original Tokyo, destroyed in the cataclysmic events before the dawn of this new era, Her Imperial Majesty ordering the ruins be kept forever as a reminder of the horrors of war, the majority of residents of Neo Tokyo see these ruins at least once during their daily commute.. Neo Tokyo is a center of the Imperium's Culture, producing the majority of media entertainment, exported globally. The Empress of the Imperium lives in the Tokyo Palace, near the center of the city. Neo Tokyo is one of the most Urbanized cities in the world, holding larger population than some nations within it's Greater Metropolitan Area.[/center]
Harajuku is known internationally as a center of Japanese youth culture and fashion. Shopping and dining options include many small, youth oriented, independent boutiques and cafés, but the neighborhood also attracts many larger international chain stores with high-end luxury merchandisers extensively represented along Omotesando.[/center]
[center] [/center]
[center]Shinjuku is a special ward located in Tokyo Metropolis, Japan. It is a major commercial and administrative centre, housing the busiest train station in the world (Shinjuku Station) and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, the administration centre for the government of Tokyo.[/center]
[center] [/center]
[center]Yokohama was one of the six Imperium cities struck by nuclear weapons in the War of the Twin Chinas, nearly decimated the city was the first to be fully recovered due to its close proximity to Neo Tokyo. Yokohama is one of the largest ports in the home islands, and certainly the most prominent, as most goods being delivered to Neo Tokyo pass through Yokohama.[/center]
[center] [/center]
[center]HIroshima, the city that will not go quietly into the night. Hiroshima is another city that was struck by Nuclear weapons in the War of the Twin Chinas. Through massive reconstruction aid and support from Tikal, the city managed a full recovery in 15 years, proving to the world that Japan will not be kept down, even after a nuclear war they come back stronger, three times now in history, the only city to have such a distinction. The main building depicted is the Hiroshima Arcology, owned by Mitsubishi Corp, The design was chosen to highlight the Tikalian influence upon the Imperium.[/center]
[center][size=6][b]Neo Seoul[/b][/size][/center]
[center] [/center]
[center]Neo Seoul, and along with it, Joseon, was one of the first territories to join the Imperium, the only city in the Imperium to hold a population larger than Tokyo at nearly 30 million residents in its Greater Metropolitan Areas. Neo Seoul is the Capital of the Joseon province and home to the Joseon Dynasty. Neo Seoul is almost entirely new construction, the Imperium transforming the city into the jewel of the mainland, the city holds one of the larger populations of Chinese in the Imperium, as well as contains numerous aesthetic and architectural references to this fact.[/center]
[center] [/center]
[center][b][size=6]Hong Kong[/size][/b][/center]
[center]Hong Kong is one of the most unique cities in the Imperium, containing a majority ethnically Chinese population. Hong Kong also stood as a symbol of Imperium freedom in comparison to their mainland neighbors during the War of the Twin Chinas, the Republic of China having occupied the cities for nearly a month before their collapse. Since then Hong Kong has been integrated into the Imperium but stands alone as the only Imperium City to be considered a Special Administrative Zone. Hong Kong elects its own officials and is not represented in the Diet, instead Hong Kong is given the freedom to enact and enforce their own laws, the Imperium simply providing military backup to maintain the city's independence.[/center]
[center] [/center]
[center]Singapore is one of the most Strategic of the Imperium's cities, at one of the ends of the Malacca Strait, this island holds vital importance to continued secure trade with Europe and Africa, and has had trillions funneled into it to ensure the Island remains in Imperium hands. One of the unique creations of Imperium Architects was ワールド, The World, built to the south of Singapore, this attachment to the city is an artificial island, the centerpiece a 140 story building with a massive sphere upon the top, reflecting the Sun and the Moon depending on the time of day.[/center]
