1st Japanese Empire

Early days (19th November - 27 November 2018)

The first Japanese nation was found by the 7 original towns of Japan, which were: Sapporo, Chikugo, Mihama (Was Kyoto at the time) Kyoto (Was Osaka), Tokyo, Oboro-Maru and Sendai. The towns had collected 512g at the 14th November, however, the citizens decided to hold elections to decide who should be the Shogun and who should be the emperor. They held the election and Surfboy1 (SurfinNinja) was elected Shogun, with Neon_Krby losing to him. LostInMoonlight of old Tokyo was declared Emperor of Japan, by the citizens. The nation capital was decided to be Tokyo, and when SurfinNinja turned out to be inactive, LostInMoonlight took over the lead of the government.

1st Japanese Civil War (27 November - 3rd December 2018)

After LostInMoonlight took over the nation lead, he also turned out to be not very active, which upset Dan1804, the owner of Kyoto, who decided to take a 700g loan from Korea and he founded the nation of Oda_Shogunate, on the 28th November.

Oda_Shogunate ended up being very successful during its early days, convincing the majority of towns of Japan to join their nation. However this was going to change soon, as a new challenger approached, Niigata, Which was going to be created by FenZenyatta.

FenZenyatta spent the money he earned of selling Prussia (384g) on claims. The town of Niigata quickly reached 55 chunks, which made Niigata the largest town of Japan The largest town. FenZenyatta quickly stated that he was the most powerful town leader of Japan and started demanding more power from Dan1804.

Fen was seeking power but he didn't want to make a 4th nation, so he started messaging every of the 3 Japanese nation leaders. He ended up agreeing the most with LostInMoonlight of Tokyo, who promised reforms in the nation. That convinced FenZenyatta to leave Oda_Shogunate and join Japan.

Age of Chaos (December 2018 - May 2019)

FenZenyatta was proclaimed as the Japanese shogun, however, LostInMoonlight never gave him the ownership of the nation. FenZenyatta was viewed internally as the leader but he only had the national Chancellor role in-game. He tried making reforms but they all failed as the nation was very inactive during the period. The most significant achievement of Japan during this age was Niigata becoming the 5th largest town on the entire server.

Around the 11th January, Tokyo owned by LostInMoonlight fell to inactivity. Niigata was the next town in the line of succession, which turned FenZenyatta into the emperor.

FenZenyatta got into talks with other citizens and agreed on calling in elections for the leader of Japan. The participants of the elections were FenZenyatta of Niigata, NeonKrby of Osaka-Kyoto, and Quil of Chiba. FenZenyatta won the election on the 10th February, with Quil_ coming second. All of the 3 were campaigning for a reformed Japanese government. Fen won with 70% of the votes

In the early days of this age, FenZenyatta reformed the Japanese discord and government. He opened a Government which helps him with dealing with stuff, he doesn't have time to deal with. During this age, Japan's population was rising sharply, to the point where Japan became the most populated nation on EMC, on the 28th February.

The two rebel nations, Oda_Shogunate and Tsugaru-shi also disbanded during this time period.

The Japanese succession crisis is what started Japan's downfall. It started with FenZenyatta making an announcement, talking about who could take over Japan after himself, and who it could be. FenZenyatta proposed it to be MLGTerra, a veteran from EMC Classic but the citizens didn't agree with his decision. . That was followed by other mayors disbanding their towns/quitting EMC.

2nd Japanese Civil War (10th May - 25th May 2019)

On the 10th May, FenZenyatta had gathered a group of people who were interested in reviving Japan. Everything went as they planned, and they approached Surfboy1 who has been inactive during the Demise. However, they didn't get a response and Surfboy was uninterested in giving away the nation, and a civil war had begun.

On the 15th May, Neon_Krby, who was a chancellor in Japan, gave Chancellor to FenZenyatta and both of them removed every alliance Japan had and kicked every town out of the nation. After that was done, FenZenyatta created the nation Imperial_Japan, proclaiming himself as the new emperor. All the kicked towns proceeded to join Imperial_Japan, meaning Japan became a one-town nation.

No battles happened during this civil war, just as in the previous one. It ended on the 25th May when Surfboy finally disbanded his own nation.

2nd Japanese Empire

This nation was made on the 15th day of May in 2019 with FenZenyatta as Emperor. On the 15 of May, FenZenyatta received a loan in form of gold from alek_b, and proceeded to create the nation "Imperial_Japan". His goal was to unite Japan under his leadership. Fen started a recruitment drive which started a flow of new players joining Japan. Many of those ended up being important political figures in the future Japanese history.

Synargle's 1st Era (16th June - 22nd July 2019)

Synargle become the Emperor of Japan during this time and become a much loved part of the Japanese community. Under Syn's leadership Japan built the new underground shopping centre which become a popular shopping destination. On the 22nd of July, Synargle suddenly went offline and never returned again on his discord account. During this period, everyone was uncertain about what was about to happen. Snowyy_b ended up holding the capital of the nation, Ashikaga, and elections were made to decide the next Emperor. Yllalen ended up winning those.

Age of Fire (10th August - 29th August 2019)

With Yllalen becoming Emperor, Japan become more weak on the regional scale with nations like Qing seeking to influence Japan further. They sent Baron_Sigma (Now Qorrin) to spy on Japan and make a nation there. Yllalen proposed a clan system of Japan which would see the united Japan fall into various different clans and eventually a civil war. Yllalen claims he did this under pressure from Qorrin (Baron_Sigma) and had no other choice, but considering Yllalen's manipulative nature and a tendency to lie to make himself sound good, these claims are fairly dubious. Japan did try to create a confederation of clans as a way of being unified but it did not last long.

After the ruin of the clan system, representatives of each group gathered to discuss reunifying Japan. Multiple options were proposed; eventually, a Japanese citizen by the name Fjolnir1 proposed the option of a user named Big Brother to take ownership. Big Brother was later revealed to be QqL, who quickly made a deal with Yllalen for ownership of Ashikaga. Ashikaga and Minamoto clans joined, with Shimazu declining, Yakuza and Ryukyu remaining in isolation.

An increasingly-intensifying standoff period between Shimazu and Japan began, with both racing for towns, this period ended with QqL kicking all towns out of Japan following a failed reunification.

3rd Japanese Civil War (29th August 2019 - 6th January 2020)

Upon the kicking of all Japanese towns by QqL, Alek_b, one of the remaining older players, decided to make a push for reunification. He immediately invited the kicked towns, as well as adding several Shimazu towns. He then renamed his nation to Imperial_Japan. Alek proceeded to join the Regional Powers and declared war on Shimazu, making Japan a theater of the Second Great War.

The war dragged on for months. Despite initial gains in the war, Imperial_Japan was stuck in a hiatus due to Shimazu's policy of "Defensive Talk-to-the-Hand-ing" (Self-imposed neutrality) and Alek's inactivity. Alek still attempted a policy of reunification, even with a different leader, and a handful of talks were held between Shimazu and Imperial_Japan. Multiple options were proposed, including introducing Arkas_King as the new emperor. In the end, however, the talks broke down, and the war was restarted, yet stuck in a stalemate. Multiple players on both sides grew tired of the war, with many becoming inactive.

Eventually, most core Imperial_Japan mayor's - Alek_b (Shikara), Krby (Tokyo), Booster_b (Komatsu), and Saayuuki (Shiga) - would sell their towns and move to the Niger town of Alpha. Snowyy and FenZenyatta, two other core Imperial_Japan members, went on to join them. KawadaJP, the final Imperial_Japan leader, joined Shimazu before shortly making his own nation of Asano.

2nd Reunification Period (6th January - February 2020)

Following Alek's leave of Japan, several individuals attempted to move the gap. Synargle decided to make a return to Japan, Baron wanted to buy out the remaining towns, and a newly resurgent Qing, led by Mr_X1234, wanted to create a puppet nation in Japan led by QqL.

Initially, Baron assisted in Synargle buying the nation of Imperial_Japan, as well as its towns Shikara and Tokyo, in an attempt to keep Qing off the island. Imperial_Japan was promptly renamed to Tokugawa, and a new confederation was formed between Shimazu, Shimazu_North Tokugawa and Ashikaga. Asano clan led by KawadaJP refused to join the Confederation due to Shimazu being involved.

Shortly after, the town of Shiga was bought by QqL. Mr_X1234 also proceeded to buy the nation of Asano, with its town Hiroshima. Hiroshima was given to QqL, while Shiga was placed with RatDogGuy.

A few days later, Baron_Sigma quit the server, giving Shimazu to Goddess_Sairene. The leaders of the confederation, as well as QqL and Mr_X1234, joined to mediate peace.

After increased cooperation, Japan agreed to reunify under its new Emperor, Synargle.

3rd Japanese Empire

United Japan (February - July 2020)

The nation of Japan remained relatively united until, Sairene was made the Empress of Japan by Synargle. At this time KawadaJP was meant to be the leader but wasn't present. This got him mad, which kicked off the 4th Japanese Civil War.

4th Japanese Civil War (June 2020 - August 2021)

Japanese 4th Civil War < As the 4th civil war was documented heavily, a detailed account of the war from start to present can be found here.

4th Japanese Empire

Reunification (August 2020 - August 2021)

On November 23rd, 2021 Kawada abdicated the throne and his heir, Lord__Troll, became emperor. His reign was marked by the increase of support in reunification from all nations in Japan, resulting in the creation of the new Kamakura Alliance, created between Shimazu, Ishikari, and Karafuto, to help reunite Japan. There was one major issue with the 4th Japanese empire, mainly that the emperor carried the nation, supporting most towns and town funding with his own gold, causing the mayors to be reliant on him, and the long term results began to show. On December 23rd, Lord__Troll had abdicated the throne when the towns of Sendai, and Toyama were forcefully disbanded, with Hiroshima and Yamagata falling to disputed or unknown reasons. Lord__Troll gave the throne to Enigma731, leaving him to deal with the chaos, and not more than 1 week after his ascension, the towns of the towns of Oita, Himeji, Hiroshima, Kawada, and Iturup falling to inactivity, with Fuji (Shizuoka) being reclaimed after a deal gone wrong. Xia had invaded the eastern part of Hiroshima, and since their intentions of invading Japan had become clear, the emperor of Japan called for the other nation’s help. Approximately 2k+ gold had been put into a quick reclamation, spanning one month. Xia had realized they could not advance and their operations were halted. Ishikari and Date had presented their final terms for reunification during this time as well, and on January 22nd, Ishikari joined Japan as a northern nation spawn and soon after, Date and the long exiled Okinawa rejoined as well. On August 6th, 2021, Shimazu and Japan finally came to an agreement in which Shimazu became Japan's southern n spawn, finally ending the 4th Japanese civil war and reunifying the Japanese archipelago.
