"Hakko ichiu" (All the world under one roof).
It came from the south. The Great Depression that engulfed the world, leaving countries - both great and small - stunned in its wake. But not Japan. The Japan has survived, endured, and emerged even stronger than before. In response to the growing threat of "ABCD nations", as well as many other foreign influences in the past centuries, nationalist and military tendencies escalated, strenghtened even more by unquestioned loyality that formed the foundation of the japanese culture. The Land of the Cherry Blossom is hungry for resources, and for greatness. People across the country agree that drastic measures are to be employed to ensure domination of the Empire in the region. The strategy has been formed. The Sun is Rising, heralding the Dawn of the Empire in the Far East.
