Nishimura Hiroshi wasn't feeling well.

After hearing about Ito's attempt at his life he had a hard time leaving his home.
Ito was a fellow Daimyo in Kyushu, a partner in the Fujin League, and in the process of modernization in Japan.
Ito was his comrade in the Imperial Army in the Bushin War.
Ito and he had a similar vision for Japan, so they founded the Kamikaze Party after the war.
But most importantly, Ito was his friend.

And such a treason hurt him.

He wasn't angry at him.
He wasn't feeling disappointed.
He was only feeling sad.

Retired admiral Unryu Raizo will stage a civil society rally to protest the way Prince Marshall Date has implemented martial law.
((Organize a rally against the overturning of the N.M.D.A.))
((Organizing a rally for respecting the Imperial Government's decisions))
((Rally in the capital. We won't disperse and will resist the dispersers if they attempt to disperse us))

Kyoto,
The Great Empire of Japan

Lieutenant General Ito Mizushima sat atop a white horse, at the head of the soldiers. The rhythmic clop clop of the horses' hooves was for a time the only sound to disrupt the still morning air. He glanced backwards at his men: veterans of his army in Korea, he knew they would follow him through Hell and back if he asked them to. But this was still difficult. This wasn't what they signed up for. A sense of quiet foreboding lay over them all. Finally they could hear the sounds of chanting. Protesters and malcontents had gathered outside the walls of the Imperial residence, imploring the Emperor to rein in the excesses of his Marshal.

Ito would see about that.

As he and his troops came in line of sight of the rally, they quieted for a moment but then became even louder; jeering at the General and his men. Ito was a well-known figure in Japan, both for his heroic exploits on the front and for his reputation as one of Date's men. They predictably focused on the latter. He looked them over impassively, and pulled a scroll from the pocket of his greatcoat. The Marshal liked things done the old-fashioned way. He coughed quietly, and then raised his voice to the stentorian tones of command that he hadn't used since he arrived home.

"Subjects of the Emperor!


You are hereby ordered by the Government of Japan, and His Excellency Marshal Prince Date, to desist and disperse as per the lawful edicts of the state in this time of crisis. Should you obey, and return to your homes forthwith, you will not be punished. Should you resist, you will suffer the consequences."

Having finished, he tucked the scroll in his pocket and looked at them expectantly. They didn't move to disperse. He sighed inwardly and motioned with his hand. A group of soldiers moved forward to forcibly disperse and arrest the protestors, but then something unexpected happened. A rock sailed from the assembled, and hit Mizushima square in his shoulder. He felt the wound he'd taken in Korea open again and bleed but was more surprised by the force of the blow, which rocked his old body backwards and nearly toppled from his horse. A dead silence fell over the rally.

Struggling to pull himself upwards, Mizushima now glared at the assembled with anger and fury. He raised his hand.

"Form ranks!"

The soldiers obediently formed ranks, as Mizushima moved to stand beside them. The protesters began to realise what was about to happen and a few of them started to run.

"Take aim!"

The rhythmic sound of guns being loaded and aimed filled the air. Mizushima dropped his hand.

"Fire!"

A volley of shots tore into the crowd, killing a score of them as others fell clutching their arms or legs; bloodied.

"Fire!"

There was screaming now, mingled with the wet sound of bullets impacting flesh. Two rounds fired from a group of soldiers was enough to put paid to anything they may have planned; and those that hadn't ran were now lying wounded or dead in the streets of Tokyo. Mizushima grimaced as they surveyed the scene.

"Arrest the wounded, and have them transported to hospitals. Leave the dead."

He rode on.

Date's Military Government (1886-1887): Fires of Anger


(Flag of the Military Government)

“Martial Law is suppose be an enforcement of order, not an attractive force of anarchy!” Was the cry of many citizens who had their lands destroyed in the subsequent rebellions and conflicts that beset the nation in the year following the declaration of Martial Law in the country. Martial Law had its own purposes, but it caused enough problems that many began to wonder its effectiveness in creating a stable society. Had Date finally become the Shogun his critics claimed he was? Had the NLP finally reach the breaking point with its enemies in the opposition? Was there more to this declaration then just maintaining order? These questions were on everyone's minds as the people awaited the call of the Emperor to decide if martial law would continue or not.


(Meiji declaring martial law with Munenari and the General Staff present)

Martial Law was declared on January 7, 1886. The Emperor appointed Date Munenari to lead the provisional government for the year, and to lead it further should the Emperor agree to extend Martial Law. The one condition though was that all laws passed by the Diet that session go into effect before martial law was declared. This includes Sakamoto Care, Sakamoto’s hard fought health care reform that made health care an intricate part of society. However many rich people began to show dissent towards the later stages of healthcare, and militancy among them grew. The government also passed a new military discipline act to modify the current one.

The first action taken by Date was to immediately suspend the NMDA, a very controversial move amongst Diet Members. Many opposition members once again took to the streets to protest the activation of martial law, the tyranny of Date, and the NLP’s desperate cling to power. Date responded by saying that this was nothing more then to stabilize the region for the greater good of the people, and had no political motivation. When the opposition refused to listen, he sent out Mizushima.

Mizushima Ito was sent to quell the protests in the areas. He first tried it the way Date told him to do it, by showing force in hopes the protestors and rebels would stand down. When that didn't work, and Ito was hit by a firework, he tried it his way. Knowing Ito at this point, it is no surprise what that inclines…


Twelve people were killed and twenty wounded as Ito began mowing down protestors across the region. The result was disgust from both the Japanese people and the international community. Date though shrugged when he heard the news and said “Only they are to blame for not ending it peacefully.” What followed was one of the largest crackdowns in the history of Japan. Hundreds were incarcerated across Japan. Many though claimed that they were being held as political prisoners for simply being a part of the opposition. Date’s message was clear, stability or else.

While protesters were getting gunned down in Central Honshu, the situation in Tohoku had devolved into civil war. Four corps began to squeeze the life out of the Jacobin revolt. The Jacobins were losing badly, and were getting stomped on wherever they went. Niigata was liberated first, followed by much of Tohoku. The Jacobin armies were soon crushed in Hokaido, and the provinces they occupied were liberated. However liberation was not really much of a blessing. The crackdowns that began in Kansai and Kanto moved into Tohoku, the place of “rebellious spirit”. Anyone who was accused of Jacobin behavior had the threat of arrest and detainment. Freedom was being tossed around like a ball, according to many.

As the people’s dissatisfaction in the way the government had been treating them increased, the popularity of another radical movement also increased. The “Katashi Movement” was beginning to become popular amongst the population. Named after imperial mad-man Ito Katashi, the Katashi movement had the goal of making the Emperor the supreme ruler of Japan, and eliminate the Diet, as well as those who wish to control the court. Hundreds of thousands of people pledged to this movement in the name of the Emperor. In the summer of 1886, they struck. over 320,000 reactionary imperial rebels rose up in rebellion against the military government. Date Munenari was in a panic as thousands of rebels surrounded the Imperial Army, and began laying waste to the land. The rebels quickly occupied Kyushu, Chugoku, and Shikoku, and even managed to take Edo. The rebels soon began to move on Kyoto. 92,000 rebels were met by 52,000 Japanese soldiers in Kyoto. The leader of this band of Imperial soldiers was Nobunage Tadakaka, a lesser ranking officer who recently had risen to status in the military government. He took command of the garrison, and held the line at Kyoto. He and his men fought valiantly, and held the line until Mizushima Ito and Date Munenari arrived to secure the capital. The capital was spared. Nobunage, Mizushima, and Date would ride on to crush the rebellion wherever it appeared. They took back city after city, and defeated every army they came across. The rebellion was snapped in two, and soon, no rebel army opposed them. All they needed to do was to march and secure the regions to make sure the rebel grip was no longer in place. Japan was stable once again.


(Fleeing Rebels)

Korea was a different story however. Korean nationalists, protesting the abuse of Japanese soldiers in their lands, rose up to try and recreate the old Korean Empire. Asano Hisanori was in a pickle. His Korean Army was spread out, and surrounded by enemies on all fronts. Yet, Asano was able to rally his forces, and secure much of the countryside. Seoul and Pyongyang were secured from the rebels by Asano’s forces, and soon, only a few pockets of rebel troops remained. Asano Hisanori had secured the Korean Peninsular from rebel forces, and it was only a matter of time before stability returned to the region.

Many expected militancy in the nation to be at an all-time high. It was when martial law was declared, but Date Munenari managed to bring it down to reasonable levels. Date had decided to push Sakamoto care one step further than the Diet had inclined, allowing for a “good” healthcare system across the nation. However, nothing was more ensuring of lowering militancy then the defeat of the rebels and the crackdowns ordered by Date himself. As more and more people learned their place, and less people began to oppose the new government, militancy dropped like a rock in a lake. Some even say that in the end, martial law LOWERED militancy from where it was at the start of the last NLP term.

With the rebels defeated, militancy lowered significantly, and peace being basically secured in the Empire (except in parts of Korea), it seemed that martial law had no real reason to continue. Yet, Date Munenari would have to decide upon calling a vote to continue martial law, or letting elections take place in the nation. He had to give his answer to the Emperor, and the Emperor would make the decision. Either way, Japan had gone from the brink of destruction to a stable time. What happens next is all up to faith.

--------------------------------
Player Actions Needed: Riccardo, decide if you want to call a vote to continue martial law for the next year. The government should submit orders on what to do from here.

He rode on.

Murderer! Murderer! Murderer! Murderer!

Arrest Ito Mizushima, the murder!

This action is fully illegal under the constitution

You've massacred peaceful rallies in the street!

The constitution remains in effect.

You have no authority to do so much as arrest anyone but the rock thrower at this rally!

Much less fire on and slaughter then wholesale!

If Date Munenari has any respect for Imperial authority and law, he'd have you arrested.

Regardless, you will face justice!

It was a misty day. Nobunage had heard of a huge army of rebels marching on Kyoto. Some rumors said it was 100.000 men strong. Nobunage feared for the worst. He started fortifying the capital. Small bamboo walls were placed, the populus was warned and food was stored. They would have to beat the huge rebel army or atleast hold out for relief to come. Morale was rather low under the troops, as the people they were fighting were Japanese. But morale raised after they heard the stories of rape of pillage that the rebels had commited. Nobunage noticed a large swarm of refugees, running away from the rebels, in fear of being killed. Most of these farms are only around 10 kilometres from Kyoto. Soon, tens of thousands of men had been spotted. The army had arrived. Fighting was brutal, both sides lost thousands of men. Slowly the army of Nobunage was pushed back, due to the rebels having vastly superior numbers. As the rebels advanced, Kyoto got destroyed. Homes were burned down. People got killed. After weeks of grinding battle, armies started to appear. It were 2 relief forces led by Mizushima Ito and Date Munenari. The rebels were flanked and quickly destroyed. Kyoto was saved, but at what cost? After the battle of Kyoto, Nobunage helped clearing Japan from the rebels. In the end, Kyoto lay in ruins, the land was pillaged, hundreds of thousands were lost, but peace was enforced in Japan.

Long live great Date, the Savior of the Empire! Long live the courageous Generals Ito Mizushima and Nobunage Tadakaka that stopped the rebellious civil disorders within the capital! and realm! We have seen that the genius of the good Prince once again proved its worth - the martial law was what this country has needed. The jacobins like Tamotsu may yell as much as they like - but the stability of the Empire and the Throne should be and will be upheld. I call for the organizers of the rallies, who violated the order of the Imperially-sanctioned military government to be held before law - we have enough of Nanban revolutionary tendencies within certain groups of degenerate political leadership. These that have forgotten about their roots, about the traditional values of obedience to the Emperor and his chosen advisors, have no place in Japanese society.

((Private: Privy Council, Martial Committee))

It is apparent that the people of Chosen have thus far rejected the light and fair rule of the Empire; I believe therefore it is now wholly necessary to end this laxity and moderation in all matters related to the native populace and instead instil Japanese virtue into them. We have, since the absorption of Chosen into the Imperial sphere, established a series of schools and academies whereby the populace could become educated and, more importantly, acquainted with our culture, the right culture. It seems that mere encouragement is no longer sufficient, and that the private institutions, amongst others, have continuously, and dangerously, undermined our efforts there.

Therefore, I propose a multi-fold solution whereby we eradicate this backwards culture and reinforce our rightful position upon the peninsula. First and foremost, all private institutions of learning must fully comply with the curriculum and quality of our institutions, and must further prohibit the use of the native tongue in any capacity, formal or informal, on campus. Further, and obviously, all curricula in our schools related to the teaching of that language, that history, or that culture, must hereby be suspended and abolished wholesale.

Furthermore, it is to be expected that a great number of orphans shall be left in the wake of this great rebellion against our moral governance; it is wholly advisable that we establish a series of state-run orphanages, under the oversight of the Governor-General, wherein our efforts in academics can be transferred to the home life of these children, these vanguards of Nipponisation. They shall dress in our manner, speak in our manner, learn in our manner, be in our manner – they shall shun the antiquated notions of their forebears, and shake of the shackles of their cultural inferiority.

However, we must ensure that these efforts are not wasted; therefore, we must imprint our language upon their legal, market, and home structures; legal documents must be written in Japanese, as must all business receipts, tax forms, and the like. Should they be found lacking, those documents shall not be held as valid in any institution, and deemed worthless.


~ Marshal Prince Date Munenari, Head of Government of the Empire of Japan, Chief of the Army General Staff, Chief of the Navy General Staff, Commander of the Northern General Army (First Corps), and President of the Privy Council


((Private: Privy Council))

Given the tempestuous nature of the Kingdom of Chosen, raised in rebellion as it is, and the extreme acts of disloyalty undertaken by those who now place themselves against the will of the Emperor and his arbiters, I believe it to be necessary to continue to policy of martial law until such a time comes that Chosen is brought back into order, and the disquieting figures in the Homeland are brought to justice for their injurious and dangerous actions.

I further believe that it is wise to reward both Mizushima Ito and Nobunage Tadakaka for their heroism during the course of these events, the former with the title of Baron, and the latter with a Medal of Honour (Red Ribbon), as well as an induction into the Order of the Precious Crown, 8th Class.


~ Marshal Prince Date Munenari, Head of Government of the Empire of Japan, Chief of the Army General Staff, Chief of the Navy General Staff, Commander of the Northern General Army (First Corps), and President of the Privy Council


((Private: Martial Committee))

In the interest of preserving stability, rewarding loyalty, and promoting an experienced, qualified army, I believe the following proposals should be discussed thoroughly:


Military Provision and Aid Act of 1887

Pensions

All soldiers of the Imperial Armed Forces, from all branches, having served more than five years, and achieved a rank Sergeant Major or lower, are entitled to the following benefits:

An annual pension of no less than 1,500 yen; for every additional five years of service, a further addition of 200 yen shall be made

All soldiers of the Imperial Armed Forces, from all branches, having served more than five years, and achieved the rank of Warrant Officer to First Lieutenant, are entitled to the following benefits:

An annual pension of no less than 3,000 yen; for every additional five years of service, a further addition of 250 yen shall be made.

All soldiers of the Imperial Armed Forces, from all branches, having achieved the rank of Major to Colonel, are entitled to the following benefits:

An annual pension of no less than 5,000 yen; for every additional five years of service, a further addition of 500 yen shall be made.

All soldiers of the Imperial Armed Forces, from all branches, having achieved the rank of Major General to Lieutenant General, are entitled to the following benefits:

An annual pension of no less than 7,500 yen; for every additional five years of service, a further addition of 750 yen shall be made.

All soldiers of the Imperial Armed Forces, from all branches, having served more than five years, and achieved the rank of General, are entitled to the following benefits:

An annual pension of no less than 10,000 yen; for every additional five years of service, a further addition of 1,000 yen shall be made.
All soldiers of the Imperial Armed Forces, from all branches having achieved the rank of Marshal, are entitled to the following benefits:
An annual pension of no less than 15,000 yen; for every additional five years of service, a further addition of 1,500 yen shall be made.


Medical Provision


All soldiers, from any branch of the Imperial Armed Forces, are entitled to discount services from state-run services, starting at a discount of 25% upon first year of service; upon two years of service, 30%; upon three years, 50%; upon five, 75%.
All soldiers, having served more than ten years within any branch of the Imperial Armed Forces, are entitled to free services at state-run medical facilities.

((All numerations based upon the assumption that 2 yen is equal to 1 US dollar of the same date.

Also, Pensions 2, to be implemented gradually as needed))




State Hospital Act of 1887


In conjunction with other proposals, it is resolved that:
A series of state-run medical facilities shall be opened; with a minimum of one in every prefecture of Japan ((Depending on how Naxhi does it, 46 (excluding OTL Tokyo), or the number of provinces in Japan… whatever that is))
These facilities shall be staffed and provisioned with funds procured by the Interior Ministry as required.
General management of these facilities shall lie within the purview of the prefectures, with oversight from the Interior Ministry, the latter reigning supreme in all matters of debate between the two.

((Removes or expands upon the medical facility section of the healthcare law; no practical effect))




Military Dignity Act of 1887


In times of war, or extreme social upheaval, any insult thrown upon the Emperor, the State, the Flag, or the Armed Services will be met by a fine of no greater than 500 yen, and a prison sentence exceeding no more than one month.
In the event of repeat offences of the latter, the fine shall exceed no more than 1,500 yen, and a prison sentence exceeding no more than three months.
In times of war, or extreme social upheaval, rallies, marches, or any form of demonstration taken to be opposed to the war effort, shall be dispersed; refusal to comply shall be met with terms similar to the above.

~ Marshal Prince Date Munenari, Head of Government of the Empire of Japan, Chief of the Army General Staff, Chief of the Navy General Staff, Commander of the Northern General Army (First Corps), and President of the Privy Council

Uesugi itched his nose quietly. His support of the stability of the nation in the wake of needless war and civil disruptions placed him in the middle of the political sphere, between the Date and Satake camps. His place resulted in the Emperor personally asking to be the civilian minister of the emergency government. He could do nothing but stand by as his former peers labeled him as an enabler of violence, even in the midst of their public rallies that threatened to bring about the end of the government and mayhaps the state itself.

With a sneeze, Uesugi unfortunately thought of Lieutenant General Ito Mizushima. A despicable little man from a despicable little family, he reveled in base violence like the animal he was. The massacre in Kyoto only proved how the man had neither honour nor spirit. He had prayed the night of the massacre that the ancestors be kind to his spirit, it needed it.

However, he was pleasantly surprised at the propositions of Date. They were surprisingly lenient, though no more lenient than the will of the last Shogun he worked with. The pay off of soldiers and the illegality of complaints of the opposition made his power absolute in times of war. Not that Uesugi really minded, the return of the proper order was at hand.

I have no issues with the propositions presented, and as such support them entirely.

"He's doing what now?!" shouted Sakamoto.
"After eradicating the Joseon state, he is eradicating the Joseon culture now," said his son, Ryoma.
Sakamoto slammed his fist down on the table hard. Despite his age, he was still physically sound and as fit as a fifty-year-old.
"NO!" he shouted. "I will not stand by while the Joseon are eradicated! They were supposed to be our brothers in arms against the gaijin, not our slaves! This is not the way of Japan!"
"Father, you know you can't win against Date," said Ryoma, "It would be suicide to denounce him."
"I agree," Sakamoto said, "I cannot fight him directly, so I will have to get around his decrees somehow."
He looked out his window, where his grandchildren were playing with kites.
"Go to Joseon and legally adopt as many Korean orphans in my name as possible," he said to his son, "I will make sure their culture does not die out."
"Yes, father," said Ryoma.
Date may have destroyed the Joseon state, but he would not destroy the Joseon civilization.
"And one more thing," said Sakamoto.
"Yes?"
"Make sure not to get on anybody's bad side in doing this."
"Yes, father."

From within a prison cell, Unryu Raizo decries his captors.

Martial law will not be tolerated for another year. By arresting the opposition, Date has finally gone too far and shamed himself and the Empire. Before, like Satake, I thought him merely misguided; but now we see he and his cronies are truly corrupt. There will be an election this year, that I promise. And, the gods willing, there will be a FP-RPP government, and such a government will force Date and his brethren into retirement. They shall haunt the civil government, the presidency of the Privy Council, and the military no longer. And, to show the gods we do not take their natural divine light for granted, should I win the leadership of the Jiyudo and become Prime Minister of Japan, I will finally establish a Church of Japan to venerate our ancestors and fulfill the Constitution's promise of State-Shinto. All who follow the way of the gods will surely prosper, and those who ignore their ancient wisdom will undoubtedly suffer misfortune. Such is fate.

I have been jailed by the Tyrannical Date Shogunate.

They may fire on our peaceful protests, but they will not silence us. We will stand strong against this foul tyranny and we will make sure to oppose all those, yes, all, those who enable it.

The Japanese people must work hard to remove the foul stain of the date shogunate and it's murderous lackeys in the martial government, including the foul bastard Ito Mizushima. Curse him and all those in his family who don't at least in their hearts stand against this foul beast. He will receive his comeuppance at a future time. The foul machine he stands for will fall soon enough.
