Overview[]

Japan[]

The islands of Japan are born of the unimaginable violence of plate tectonics, arising as the Pacific Plate is ground beneath the Eurasian Plate. The result is a mountainous land of great beauty and peril, where the people live and thrive in a narrow corridor between volcano and sea.

Shigeru Yoshida[]

Shigeru Yoshida, the last prime minister of Imperial Japan, and the first prime minister of the modern Japanese state, was a key figure in the transformation that Japan underwent in the dramatic years following her defeat in World War II. Yoshida, after being released from US custody, guided the nation in a brave new direction which emphasised demilitarisation, foreign cooperation and economic recovery - a sharp contrast to the prior century of militarism, fanatic nationalism and warmaking. His policy of relying on allied nations for security, and directing most of Japan's resources to economic build-up defined both himself and the nation he led, being known as th Yoshida Doctrine. A champion of peace and the architect of Japan's post war economic miracle, Yoshida is revered today for his commitment to rebuilding his nation.

Dawn of Man[]

"The sun rises once more upon Japan, honorable Shigeru Yoshida, and it is your task to ensure that she rises with it. Taking the reins of a nation humiliated and beaten, under the near complete control of an alien power possessing the most destructive force known to man, few envied your perilous position. Undeterred, you guided the nation towards economic recovery, forging friendships with nations near and far. Within a few short years, Japan reemerged as one of the world's major players. Reigning in a period not just of local discord, but of global fear and conflict, you ushered in an age of peace, technological development and an economic explosion the envy of the world over.

O' steadfast prime minister, the people of this ancient nation yearn to shrug off the humiliations of the past and embrace a future of prosperity and cooperation - can you deliver them this dream? Can you rise from the darkness like a stunning sunrise, and assert your rightful place in the new world order? Can you build a civilization to stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Japan welcomes you and your delegations, great leader. I am Prime Minister Shigeru Yoshida, and I pray that our countries may together know the blessings of harmony and progress."

Defeat: "I fear that after this defeat, there shall not be a third sunrise for Japan."
