Name: Maruyama Kuri
Specialty: Politics
Born: August of 1855
Background: Maruyama's brother worked as a factory worker in the famed sake productions of Japan and experienced both the uplifting and oppressive aspects of factory labor. Maruyama's ideology combined the industrial concerns of his brother's life with the agricultural upbringing of his family. He is a socialist who believes in state capitalism, an abolition of the Privy Council's ability to choose the Prime Minister, and a creation of an elected Upper House. He also promotes pacifism and Asian solidarity through labor movements and defensive alliances. He is a member of the House of Representatives in the Imperial Diet for the Radical Progress Party but is known to sometimes publicly disagree with the party leadership.

Notice from the Ministry of the Interior

After investigating factory productivity in various states, it is no surprise that urban centres have far greater access to workers than those more rural parts of the country. As such the ministry's programme of promoting factory jobs in those areas shall continue.
However, in regards to direct productivity, the extensive use of clerical staff seen in the central block of Chubu, Kansai and Kanto has had a dramatic impact on a factory's efficiency. It has therefore been determined that this practice should be encouraged by factories in states outside said block.

((Private))

Blood, blood everywhere. On the walls, on the floor, on the ceiling. The world was one red blur. And in the middle of it was a young woman, a giant gash carved across he bare chest, her eyes wide in horror and her mouth frozen in a silent scream. She lay upon a blood-drenched blanket, the last vestiges of her life slipping away.

When Ito Masaki finally awoke, he shivered violently. He'd been having such nightmares for weeks now. The imagery was always the same. A young girl, freshly killed. Perhaps he would stop drinking the new cinnamon tea he'd started drinking before bed. It was wrecking havoc on his dreams.

Masaki went into the other room and washed his face in the water basin. He noticed dried blood stains around the edges. How did those get there? He didn't remember recently cutting himself, although he had had a nose bleed a week ago. Perhaps this was merely the remnants of that, although he didn't see how he could have missed the stains until now. He must have been too distracted lately.

Before starting his day, Masaki sat down in his cozy armchair, had tea brought by his servant (who was paid a full wage and not bound by some draconic contract), and perused the newspaper. Nothing exciting this time. The papers were still going on about members of the Freedom Party applauding Kusaribe Kinzo's speech. Masaki supposed even members of the opposition had some ounce of sense. He skimmed over some article about a young woman found floating in the river, her body brutally mutilated. Such horrendous things happened from time to time. Perhaps as Minister of Justice he could try implementing some changes to stamp down on such violent crimes. That would take time though. For now he thought nothing more of it and continued on with his day.

Proper Industrial and Personal Taxation Act: NO

[Politician]


Government, despite its current governing party, must never give up the right of taxation on corporate and industrial sectors in order to fund its proper function. Government must provide for the welfare of the people and this law would set a precedent of welfare for the rich instead of welfare for all.

Date (1890-1891): With a Vengeance

Japan was at the height of its stability and prosperity as it entered the new decade with a swing in its hips and a smile on its face. Its industry was running at full output, its people were happy, its military was strong, and its government was stable. Besides bickering partisan divides nothing really bad was happening in Japan. However, all good things don’t last forever, and reality was about to kick Japan straight in the teeth.

In early 1890 the peace and stability in Japan was shattered when Russian Tsar Alexander III declared war on Japan. Russia wanted to reclaim Sakhalin, a former province of Russia before Japan took it in the Great Asian War. Japan originally thought that Russia was going to be easy to beat. A few years prior, Russia ended its alliance with France, meaning that France would not be able to help out with the Russian assault. Japan originally thought this would be good news for their offensive, and prepared to defend Korea. As expected, 50,000 Russian soldiers attacked Korea, and another 12,000 attacked Sakhalin. The Imperial Navy was quick to block off the straight between Vladivostok and Sakhalin, and managed to defeat the 12,000 strong Russian army assaulting Sakhalin. The Korean garrison took a beating as Asano Hisanori was losing ground in the Russian assault, but a quick reinforcement by Nobunage Tadakaka allowed the Korean Garrison to push back the Russian assault. The boundaries of the war would be set as Russia camped out waiting for more reinforcements from Europe to arrive. Russia also began to assault the smaller Japanese islands of Bonin and Okinawa. Japan was unable to reinforce these islands, and their strategic importance was very small in the overall war, so Japan deemed them as acceptable sacrifices. The stalemate would be broken though, not by Japan or Russia, but by a third party in the war.


(Japanese soldiers repelling Russian expeditionary troops)

In late 1890, communications with Manila went dark. It was a surprise move that Japan never saw coming. At first, many thought it was a Russian assault that surprised the garrison on the island, but Russia had no real fleet to get troops down there fast enough. Soon, the whole colony in the Philippines went dark, with no news from the area reaching Japan. Japan began to get nervous. The islands north of Hokkaido also went dark. Japan began to get nervous about who was doing this. It was clear Russia was getting help from a third party, but who? Then the revelation came, in the form of 63,000 troops landing and assaulting Hokkaido. These men were British marines and army personal. Alexander III and Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone of the United Kingdom had made a secret pact with another in advance of the Russian war declaration. Britain had joined Russia in the war with the Japanese. Historians have argued why the British went to war with Japan, even though for the past few years the Japanese had worked to please the British through increased negotiations. Some say the British still felt angry towards Japan for the Matsui incident forty years ago, others say Britain wanted the land that it tried to claim during the First Anglo-Japan war. Regardless, the British army moved through Hokkaido with lightning speed, smashing Northern Corp IV based in Hokkaido. Luckily the Imperial navy blockaded the straights of Hokkaido preventing the British from crossing into Honshu. However the British were ready to pounce. Britain was the only European nation to beat the Japanese, and it was clear that they intend to do it again.

(Japanese troops fleeing Hokkaido)

1891 was an election year, and as Election Day drew closer and closer, Date Munenari got worried. He felt that loosing Hokkaido would hurt him in the polls, and that possibly losing the war would hurt his chances of victory. However, a startling thing happened. Many Japanese civilians actually turned to Date for guidance. The military expertise of the NLP would see many flocked to their banner. The NLP popularity was high. The Freedom Party’s message of peace was weak in the face of this British attack, and grew weaker when the British wanted to cut the Japanese military down to size. As the FP asked for peace, many felt Japan should fight on in the face of such a threat. Britain was the #3 military power in the world next to China and Germany. If Japan could beat the British, then Date Munenari would be cemented as a legend, and forever go on as a hero to Japan and the emperor.


(NLP Campaign poster showing "A Victorious Japan under the NLP")

In all, as the election of 1891 came upon Japan, Japan had lost land. Hokkaido, the Philippines, and their island bases had been occupied by the British and Russians. It seemed that whoever won this election would have to decide how to handle the British threat. Britain wanted to win the war and beat Japan, and this determination would be presented to whoever one the election.

Again the Russians have attacked, and again we must drive them back to their frozen steppes; again the West has sought to tread upon our lands, violate our people, and tear asunder our empire. We will not fall as China and India have; we will fight these invaders, these western barbarians, and we will bring to our Emperor and to our homeland victory! I shall once again run for leader of the National Liberal Party.

It appears that our warnings about Date's warmongering went unheeded. Those previous "great victories", which had led to the slaughter of millions in exchange for small parcels of land, have now threatened to destroy Nippon. By aping the Nanban imperialist ways we are now at risk of retribution by said Nanban. We must swear off conquest for the rest of eternity so such a situation shall not repeat itself. I urge Nippon to support Jiyudo and save Nippon. No more Date, no more wars!

Prince Date reads of Tanaka's abolition of conquest for all eternity and laughs to himself; such absolutists, he mutters before returning to the matters at hand; he trusted his allies in the media would roundly mock this blanket declaration.

It appears that our warnings about Date's warmongering went unheeded. Those previous "great victories", which had led to the slaughter of millions in exchange for small parcels of land, have now threatened to destroy Nippon. By aping the Nanban imperialist ways we are now at risk of retribution by said Nanban. We must swear off conquest for the rest of eternity so such a situation shall not repeat itself. I urge Nippon to support Jiyudo and save Nippon. No more Date, no more wars!

((Private Tanaka))
Tanaka, sir, with all due respect I do not believe "abolition of conquest for eternity" would end the gaijin menace. The gaijin would simply be free to rampage through Japan and Asia as they please, and we would be unable to stop them! No, we must fight them off and make sure they do not threaten Asia ever again! I respect Jiyudo's pacifist ideals, but as long as the gaijin control large parts of Asia we cannot simply return to peace and hope they do not attack us. It would simply doom all of Asia.

((Public))
Again we are at war with the gaijin. Those in the NLP advocate for military retribution, a counteroffensive against the gaijing occupying our territories. While I see nothing wrong with this, I strongly advise them to tread carefully lest they set the stage for a future war which we may not be able to win.
Some of my fellow Jiyudo members state that "swearing off conquest for all eternity" would solve all of our problems. However, I offer an additional solution. Diplomacy. Yes, we must not wage offensive wars against our fellow Asian brothers or declare suicidal wars against the gaijin, but we must also use diplomacy to maintain the peace in Asia. Simply swearing off offensive warfare would not accomplish much. We must also negotiate terms with the gaijin that are favorable to us but that they would accept. I urge the brave and honorable people of Japan to vote Jiyudo, so that we can, in my father's words, bring balance to Asia.

The gaijin will not listen to diplomacy unless forced to, for they us barbaric inferiors and will not consider us a nation to live with peacefully, as evidenced by their recent aggression against us. The only way for diplomacy to work is if they are bleeding to death and we are the only people with bandages.

"The National Liberal Party has not espoused a well-defined, unified ideology ...

The Jiyu-Minshuto, or Jiminto, supports the idea of pacifism but has conceded that it is sometimes necessary, for the safety of Japan and its people, for Japan to engage in warfare. The Jiminto is generally considered market liberal, it supports free trade between nations and promotes the idea of a ‘Free Asian Economic Market’. The Jiminto also believes that Capitalism is the way forward but accepts the need for the government to provide a safety net in case problems arise.
