Major - Japanese conquest of the world
Minor - A non-aligned Japan
Because we are non-aligned our play will be characterised by opportunitism, there is little room for long term plans when the fortunes of great nations are swaying in the winds of time.
The main strategic aspect of the Asian continent is its low IC density. Because of this I do not necessarily view a larger land empire as superior to IC investments. Even military spending is simply proxy IC investment as we increase our economy through using the developed militaries, the return on military investment is lower in Asia. However our medium term plan will be to capture the Chinese economies.
