Korea hadn't had the most pleasant recent history. The rise of the recent DPRK had proven to be disastrous for the peninsula, and the fall of the communist nation had proven to be no less traumatic.

 

With the establishment of a Japanese protectorate over Korea, things had begun looking up again. With the fall of the failed experiment in communism that was the DPRK, the newly established Republic of Korea was once again able to conduct elections, under Japanese protection, of course. Citizens from both the North and the South would flock to the polls, and the result would be the election of Park Ki So of the conservative Saenuri Party to the Presidency. The new President was descended from none other than Park Chung-Hee himself, and his family had grown increasingly powerful in Korean politics after the fall of the DPRK.

 

Park's election came with a plot twist, in the form of a message to the Japanese government. The message expressed his gratitude for Japan's ongoing efforts to protect Korea in its time of need. It went on to request that the Korean people be once again allowed to form a fully independent and sovereign state on the Korean peninsula.

Communique to the Korean Government

 

As has been lined out in our policy and stated objectives regarding Korea, the Japanese Empire is willing to dissolve the protectorate agreement between Korea and Japan and hand full external sovereignity over to the Korean people again. Given that Korea will have to ensure its own security again, we hereby offer to transfer all Korean-recruited units that are currently making up the Chōsengun to a new Korean army. While a planned fleet of 16 ships has not yet been completed, we do offer to turn over ownership of these vessels too. Additionally, with the termination of the protectorate treaty, we would think it is appropriate to transform the office of Resident-General to the Japanese Ambassador to your country.

 

In the interest of good relations and stability, we would be willing to continue also the economic cooperations between our countries and private businesses, in order to rebuild Korea to its former glory, if such is acceptable.

 

With regards,

Akiyama Kagami, Prime Minister of Japan

Private to Japan

 

We thank Japan for allowing Korea to regain its full sovereignty, we will gladly work to maintain the economic ties that have grown between Japan and the Korean peninsula. We are also grateful for Japan's assistance in regards to rebuilding the Korean Army, and will gladly accept the transfer of Korean-recruited units over to Korean command. While we are equally grateful for the offer of warships, we unfortunately cannot maintain such vessels, due to the monetary damage incurred from the DPRK's reign.

 

We would be quit happy to have a Japanese ambassador in Seoul, and if possible, we would like to maintain an embassy of our own in Japan, in order to ensure the continued development of ties between our two nations.

In that case, our military will facilitate a hand-over of troops to your military forces and we will withdraw our own military presence from the peninsula as soon as possible. Given the ships are being constructed by Hyundai Heavy Industries and Daweoo Shipbuilding & Maritime Engineering (though paid by our state), we would like to keep the order running as is, with Japan taking over the ships once constructed as Japanese Navy ships. This seems to us less complicated and mutually benefitial.

 

We are more than willing to provide a locality for you to establish a proper Korean embassy in Tokyo, in order to have proper ties between our nations. Attached to the communique you'll find the exact address.

 

With regards,

Akiyama Kagami, Prime Minister of Japan

The about 100,000 Koreans serving in the Japanese Army in Korea were informed of their transfer to the new Korean state army, and the administrative matters would be transferred to the new state. The Japanese units in Korea, which were tasked with protecting Korea were transferred from Busan to the Northern Area Army, for possible deployment to Alaska later.

 

The Resident-General in Korea was officially restyled Ambassador of Japan to Korea and was to oversee the activities. Takamine Kenji tried his best to make the transition as smooth as possible. Meanwhile, the new state would be offered an embassy at the good old location of 4-4-10, Yotsuya, Shinjuku-ku in Tokyo.

Efforts would begin to fully rebuild the Korean Military, now called the Korean Defense Forces. As things currently stood, the army had 100,000 Japanese trained soldiers, and not much else. Efforts would begin to train additional troops.

 

In addition to troops, military equipment would also be needed. The one decent thing that had come about from the former DPRK was a large military industry. This industry would now have the advantage of access to the South's technologies and money. Orders would go out to restart production for the KDF.

 

Of course, the odds of Korea surviving a war were relatively slim. Surrounded by powers such as Tianxia, Russia, and Japan, it didn't take a Field Marshal to know that the KDF wouldn't be able to survive in the highly unlikely event that it did find itself at war with its neighbors. That being said, the KDF wasn't being built to win a war with its neighbors. It was, however, meant to act as a small deterrent, not just against foreign powers, but also against threats from within the country.

After all, the new Korean government highly doubted that the remnants of the DPRK would just vanish quietly, and as such, counter-terrorism would be one of the things that would be highly emphasized in the rebuilding of the Korean army, defensive, asymmetric and guerrilla warfare being another.

New Departments Created to Deal With North's Legacy

 

The President has announced the creation of two new departments in order to deal with the legacy of the DPRK and to revitalize the Peninsula.

 

The most important of these new departments appears to be the Public Security Intelligence Agency. The PSIA is intended to act as Korea's new National Intelligence Agency, and is not directly linked to efforts to deal with the DPRK. However, its operations are expected to mainly center around tracking down the remnants of the DPRK for the foreseeable future. The former communist state's supporters were never fully brought to justice, and there are fears that they could evolve into a threat to Korea's young democracy.

 

Another new agency is the Committee for Korean Reintegration. While both the Northern and Southern portions of the Peninsula suffered under the communist reign, the North was affected far more than the South was. Much of Korea above the 39th Parallel remains chronically underdeveloped, and stricken by poverty. The CKR's task is to improve the standards of living in the North to the level of the South. This is, of course, a huge undertaking for just one department. However, the CKR does have one advantage, in the form of the North's mineral resources. The CKR has been temporarily given the power to oversee the North's vast resources, meaning that the Committee can expect some support from Korean corporations interesting in mining those resources. 

 

In addition to rebuilding the North's living standards, the CKR has been charged with giving aid to those who were affected most by communist rule, including former political prisoners and inmates of the DPRK's harsh prison system. It is also expected to work with the Ministry of Transport to build rail and road links from the South to the North, as currently travel and commerce between the two halves of the peninsula is greatly hampered by a lack of transportation links.

To Park Ki So, President of the Republic of Korea,

 

Given the connections between our countries, we like to request a meeting between you and Prime Minister Akiyama Kagami as soon as it is possible for you. We would like to discuss the relationship between Korea and Japan, exchange opinions on the regional security and maybe outline areas of potential cooperation. While we would not want to pressure you, it seems prudent to us that these matters be adressed as soon as possible, so as to yield the maximum benefit for both our people.

Korea's navy had always been the weakest arm of the Korean Defense Forces. With only 7 corvettes and 3 submarines, the Navy would have difficulties in combating smuggling and piracy in its own waters, simply due to not having enough ships to patrol the entire coastline. Of course, smuggling and piracy were rare in Korean waters, but it wouldn't stay that way for long unless the KDF could prove its ability to maintain order in its territorial waters.

 

While Korea couldn't afford to build any new warships, it could build a number of smaller craft, namely patrol boats. Thus, an order would be put in to Korean shipyards to build 45 Svetlyak class patrol boats. These vessels would hardly be any use in actual combat, but they could easily manage lightly armed smuggling vessels.

Former Communist Officials Put on Trial

 

The trials of a number of former Communist officials began today. Most of the officials were top ranking communists, and have been charged with a variety of crimes ranging from embezzlement to mass murder. In brief statements issued today, the ex-officials denounced the existing Republican government, and called the trials "a sham."

 

While popular opinion does appear to support the government's efforts to hunt down and bring former Communist officials to court, the current cases have caused some debate as to just who should be tried. Some conservative politicians have called for the government to begin arresting everyone who was associated with the DPRK, which would require the arrests of hundreds of thousands, while more liberal factions have called for only high ranking officials who played a direct role in the DPRK to be tried. In a statement today, the President said that "The former officials and supporters of the DPRK will be tried on a case by case basis, and will be charged and treated depending on the crimes they have committed."

While the Korean peninsula was still seen as somewhat "unruly", the government seemed to have stabilised and threats from communists were seen as a more distant issue, causing the Japanese to be relieved for the most part. If there was one thing the national conservative government of Akiyama hated, it was leftist subversives and anarchists. But the Koreans seemed to manage and trade across the strait slowly picked up, becoming not unessential, especially in times of an overall declining trade volume in Asia. Prime Minister Akiyama and her cabinet thus went forward with one special issue of Japanese-Korean relations.

 

Ambassador Takamine Kenji thus forwarded a special communique from the government in Tokyo to the Blue House.

 

To President Park Ki So,

 

As it seems that the Korean Republic is lowly stabilising itself and can serve as a future state for the Korean nation, we would like to adress the issue of the Korean minority living within Japan at some time in the future. With close to a million Zainichi Koreans and Japanese citizens of Korean descent, we feel that a proper dialogue be held between our nations to establish a more lasting solution to what currently amounts to alien citizens with a special permit to stay. If possible, I would have our Minister of Foreign Affairs visit Korea to initiate such a dialogue.

 

Additionally, we would like to discuss a cooperation regarding energy and science between our nations and have maybe a short exchange on any security matters that may come to mind.

 

With most friendly regards,

Akiyama Kagami, Prime Minister of Japan

Given that the regional events were most likely of regional concern, the Japanese government transmitted a confidential communique to Ambassador Takamine in Seoul, to be forwarded to the Korean government.

 

To President Park Ki So

 

Given the recent Russian activities in the Pacific, which have now become overtly hostile, our government hereby reaffirms that it will protect Korea's independence and territorial integrity, should the Russians attack. While we do see it as more likely that Japan itself could become a target, we do not rule out any action against Korea, after the sudden incursion into Outer Manchuria. In case Japan does come under attack, it is our opinion that depending on Tianxia's position, it may be best if Korea most of all sees to defend itself and its territorial waters, given that while we are confident in Korean courage and spirit, we are pessimistic about the ability of the Korean Defense Forces to hold off a Russian or possibly even Russo-Chinese force.

 

With regards,

Akiyama Kagami, Prime Minister of Japan

Defcon lowered to two, Korean forces prepared for defense and things. Actions that might be used as an excuse for a preemptive strike would be avoided where possible.
