Japan (日本 Nihon/Nippon, officially 日本国 Nippon-koku or Nihon-koku) is a medium sized country located in Eastern Asia. Japan has a unicameral parliament styled the eDiet and is led by a President.
Japan is currently a member of the alliance Circle of Trust, (CoT) beginning August 30th 2012. In the past, it was a member of the Terra-PANAM (January 4, 2011 - July 10, 2011) alliance and Brolliance (March 31, 2010 - September 15, 2010) alliances. The nation was also a founding member of the PEACE GC (August 27, 2008 - November 19, 2009) and Sol (July 8, 2009 - October 15, 2009) alliances.
Japan is an island nation in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies to the east of China,South Korea and North Korea, north of Republic of China (Taiwan), west of the USA and south of Russia. Stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north, to the East China Sea in the south.
In the past it was a country of few resources. However its location on the southernmost crossing of the Pacific Ocean, only one of two such crossings, gave Japan a prime strategic position. Right now, the original Japanese regions contains 2 fish, 2 aluminium, 2 fruits and 2 deer resources. Japan was rich in food related resources, maked it one of the minor food exporters in this part of the World, but nowadays the Japanese economy are rebuilding after liberated from occupation of the Republic of China (Taiwan).
This country doesn't have any trading embargoes at the moment.
Japan is a medium-sized nation in terms of population, currently around 1000 citizens. Few citizens are native Japanese with a majority of players originating from foreign nations, particularly from the USA, Serbia, and Hungary.
With the lack of Japanese speakers, the Japanese Diet along with government-run services are mainly held in English with some Japanese.
The community of Japan was notorious for its light hearted fashion of playing, with most citizens more worried about having fun rather than 'winning' the game. However in recent times, the Japanese populace has become more 'gameplay' orientated.
Nowadays the Japanese nation became divided by the current political situation. The different opinions led many simple conversations to raging arguements, friends and allies became enemy, because their belief about the solution of the Taiwanese occupation is different. Though the three great faction is trying to work together for eJapans' sake, misunderstandings are very common between these groups.
Constitution of Japan
For the full text, see: Constitution of Japan
Often discussed but never completed, a new debate on an official constitution for Japan started in early August 2009. It most notably included the position of Emperor. Ultimately a vote passed 23-7 for this proposal on September 1st 2009.
Mainly a ceremonial document, the constitution also covers the basic rights of citizens and the guiding principals for Japan.
The document was abjured by the Diet on June 19, 2012. Japan is currently without a constitution.
Emperor of Japan
For a detailed history of this controversial position, see Emperor of Japan.
The first and also the last true Emperor of Japan was Kokawayoshi Makoto.
The topic of instating an Emperor of Japan has always been a topic of much discord within the Japanese community, with discussions being mired with concerns of such a position being undemocratic or biased towards specific groups. In the past citizens had been nominated for such a position, but every time the subject was democratically approached the motion was voted down.
HIZUMI, Oraizan and Tohru all claimed the position on April 13, 2009 (or better known as Empress Day by some) in what some people have deemed a joke activity to spur activity in the media and to encourage discussion within the community once again. The event ended in disaster, with several cabinet ministers resigning over the affair.
After a great deal of debate, The Imperial Diet voted on Kokawayoshi Makoto being installed as Japan's first official Imperial Emperor.
Kokawayoshi Makoto died in September 2011. Japan has no had emperor since, although there was a recent attempt to name exreality as emperor around May-June 2012. The initiative has since been stalled due to lack of public participation in a referendum that aimed to decide whether or not exreality was fit for the position.

A Senpai/Kouhai Tutoring Program is currently operational, led by the Minister of Education.

Japan was a former member of the FIST and PEACE GC alliance. It was also a founding member of the regional alliance Sol, which it has since resigned from. It was a Brolliance member, and from January 2011 to July 2011 was member of PANAM/Terra alliance. Right now, Japan is a member of Circle of Trust alliance.
The Japanese Military is currently split up amongst some military groups and, included in those groups, are the Imperial Japanese Army and Imperial Japanese Academy. An Imperial Japanese Army MU funded with government money for coordinated strikes was introduced during the exreality administration of July-August 2012.
The First War with South Korea
Japan engaged in a war with South Korea shortly after the war module came online. The war was long and hard however in the end victory was in Japan's hands, they took the whole of South Korea in an undramatic conquest. See the Japan-South Korea War.
In November 2008, ATLANTIS backed freedom-fighters liberated the regions of Gyeonggi-do, Chungcheongnam-do and Gyeongsangnam-do. These three territories remained sovereign South Korean regions until May 2009, when the South Korean government decided to form a union with Japan. Sporadic resistance wars occurred during the months between the original resistance wars and the formation of the union. However, none of these resistance wars were supported or funded by either the South Korean or Japanese governments.
An attempt in late August 2009 for independence failed when the Theocrats from Switzerland gained a majority in the Congressional elections, the country was reabsorbed by Japan. However in September 2009 the Theocrats started what became known as the Theocratic War and took control of Gyeonggi-do, declaring South Korea an independent and sovereign nation. Theocrats continued to start resistance wars across South Korea in an attempt to make South Korea a nation under Theocracy. In mid-December, three more South Korean regions were returned to Korean ownership by Japan.
Formerly , Japan was engaged in mutually-agreed training wars with both South and North Koreas.
The Second War with South Korea
On May 6, Japan declared war on South Korea, giving a list of reasons for the action, from wanting to eliminate multi's from South Korea to owing it to the country to erase it and let them start over, and also to establish "West Japan". There was Korean speculation that it was "for the lulz". See Also: Second Japan-South Korea War and War of Lulz
The Japanese won the first battle. Later Japan escalated the war with the incorporation of EDEN forces, especially from Croatia. This was unneccessary as Korean strength was not enough, but it did speed up the war. South Korea then signed an MPP with Germany. The first resistance battle of the war was again a win for Japan, but two days later, they attacked three regions at once, winning all three easily in a sweeping set of victories that were hailed by newspapers on the Japanese side.; by the end of the week, they had taken the South Korean capital of Gyeonggi-do and reduce SK to two useless regions. "West Japan" had been established and a "Victory Obelisk" was erected in the former Korean capital.
Resistance battles were started by Alfagrem, but it was the signing of the MPP with Russia that ended Japanese dominance in the region. Russia pushed the Japanese out rather quickly, and with numeric superiority. With Russian support, South Koreans regained the island of Jeju, becoming whole for the first time since the Theocratic war.
The MPP with Russia did not come without a price; upon signing the deal, Russia was able to use Gyeonggi-do to launch an attack on the Chinese region of Shandong, altering the ongoing war over Liaoning.
The war saw the first deviation from the Righteous Nation Philosophy established by Reiji Mitsurugi. It is theorized that this was the point that the constitution of Japan ceased to be influential in politics.
