    Japan-icon.png Japanball, officially known as the State of old people Animeball, Kawaiiball, Poket Monstersball, Super Marioball, Detective Conanball and Debtball Japanball, is a Jojo's reference a countryball located in the part of East Asia. is a imperialistic and detective sovereign state with a parliamentary constitutional monarchy. The capital and largest metropolitan area in the world with a world famous detective the capital cityball is Beikaball Tokyo-icon.png Tokyoball. The emperor is a figurehead who performs ceremonial duties. Japanball is the largest island country in East Asia and the 4th largest island country globally. Its clay has 377 975 square kilometers, making it the 61st biggest country. One hundred twenty-six million people live there, and one which makes it the 11th most populous countryball in the world (2021) and 2nd most populated island country, just behind Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball. It has the 8th largest exclusive economic zone, 4,470,000 sq km. Most of Japan's clay is sea territory, yet it does not yet have the technology to live in the sea. It is also called the "land of the rising sun" because being the most eastern country in East Asia. The kanji (the logographic symbols used in the Japanese language) used in 日本 (Japan) translates to "the sun's origin."

    Japanball has the third-largest economy in the world. It is a member of the G20 (or Group of Twenty), the countryballs with the 19 largest economies plus the EU-icon.png EUball. It is also a member of the exclusive G7 (Group of Seven) and the OECD-icon.png OECDball for one of the most economic countryballs in the world, and the UN-icon.png UNball. It is considered a great power. Throughout its history, Japanball has achieved outstanding scientific and economic progress. Japanball is also one of two balls that can have cat ears and cattail (kawaii). The other is Hawaii-icon.png Hawaiiball. Japanball also invented emojis.

    Its clay is made of about 6,852 islands. The four largest islands are Hokkaido-icon.png Hokkaidō (also a prefectureball), Honshū, Kyūshū, and Shikoku. Honshū can be divided into the regionballs of Tōhoku, Kantō, Chūbu, Kansai, and Chūgoku, which along with the other islands, adds to a total of 8 regionballs. Japanball is divided into 47 prefectureballs, consisting of 2 urban prefectureballs, 1 territoryball, 1 metropolisball (its capitalball Tokyo-icon.png Tokyoball), and 43 prefectureballs proper. Japanball is separated from its neighbors by vast seas. Its neighbors are North Korea-icon.png North Koreaball, South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball, and China-icon.png Chinaball to the west; Taiwan-icon.png Taiwanball to the southwest; and Russia-icon.png Russiaball to the north. Its maritime borders are the Okhotsk Sea to the north, the East China Sea and the Philippine Sea to the south, the East Sea to the west, and the Pacific Ocean to the east.

    It was once an isolated feudal country with a warrior class known as the samurai and Shogun (military dictators) as the de facto rulers from 1192 till 1868. This made Japan a "warrior nation." Then it became a major world player and Asian superpower as the Japanese-Empire-icon.png Empire of Japanball. It was one of the largest empires in history. It was a member of the Entente in WW1. It was one of the few major non-European empires, just like its then-friendly-rival, USA-icon.png USAball. Later, it joined the Nazi-icon.png Axis Powers in WW2 but lost and went back to living peacefully; thus, creating stuff that strengthens its economy. It was an avid fan of art since the 15th century. Nowadays, Japanball has a lot of "soft power" influence and gets more money through its greatest invention -- The DVD. It is famous for high technology and video games like Sonic, Kirby, Mario Brothers, Pac-Man, Dig Dug, etc. The USA-icon.png American-written 1947 constitution made Japan a pacifist country. In 2015 it had the 4th highest ranked military force Self-Defense Forces in the world. USA-icon.png USAball wants Japan-icon.pngJapanball to help more in the world. So it is gradually shedding its pacifist ideals. Sadly, its population is also decreasing due to anime girls.

    Despite being wealthy and developed, Japanball is not considered an Hong Kong-icon.png South Korea-icon.png Singapore-icon.png Taiwan-icon.png Asian Tiger. Mostly due to its stagnant economic growth since the 1990s.

    Personality[edit | edit source]

    Japanball lives in harmony with ancient traditions and high tech. Harmony, the collective (greater good), traditions, and unity are important in Japanball culture and society. The group is often put before the individual. Japan-icon.png Japanball respects its ancient culture, such as sumo wrestling, tea ceremony, martial arts, festivals, etc. It loves to eat seafood like sushi that it fishes from its vast sea territory. Japanball likes life with rules, order, cleanliness, and hierarchy and dislikes unpredictable earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and Godzilla. Fujisan (Mount Fuji)(Japanese:富士山) is a sacred mountain admired for its natural beauty. Japan loves the Sun because its name is the "land of the rising sun" (Nihon, 日本). It is polite and a tech-guru. Politeness depends on your status. Japanball is a workaholic; it's all for money. It also works into the night to serve its company. It has little free time and frequently puts work before dating, family, and friends. Japan-icon.png Japanball enjoys all kinds of anime and video games. It can act modest and shy to strangers. Japan-icon.png Japanball likes everything kawaii. Gaining and keeping honor is sometimes more important than material things. Japanball is punctual and wants everything to be on time, getting angry when other countries are a few minutes late.

    Japan-icon.png Japanball is semi-pacifist due to the 1947 constitution that was forced given by USA-icon.png USAball. It made Japan-icon.png Japanball kawaii like a catgirl. However, tensions and disputes with neighbors South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball, China-icon.png Chinaball, Russia-icon.png Russiaball, and a possible nuclear threat from North Korea-icon.png North Koreaball lead to the rearming of Japanball to protect itself. The pacifism is slowly, but surely decreasing.

    Many people in USA-icon.png USAball and plenty of other countries associate Japan with, Shoguns, Samurai, Shinobi Ninjas (Japanese: 忍び) from the Sengoku "jidai" (Japanese: 戦国時代) and the Edo "jidai" (Japanese: 江戸時代), despite Japanball being very ahead of those old days.

    As the 4th largest island country, the Japan-icon.png Japanese people are islanders. Many people have an island mentality. It prefers to be inward-looking and preoccupied with its own weird culture and society. It sees itself as superior unique from all other countryballs. It likes to live in its own world and cares less about other countryballs. Sometimes Japan-icon.png Japanball becomes isolationist when it has enough barbarians gaijins (foreigners) on their clay. It finds the continentball gaijins strange and entertaining. As a fellow island country, Japanball can better understand UK-icon.png Igirisu-san, Taiwan-icon.png Taiwan-san, Philippines-icon.png Firipin-kun, Palau-icon.png Parao-kun, and Indonesia-icon.png Indoneshia-kun.

    And VERY, VERY, Kawaii.

    History[edit | edit source]

    1-icon.png Prehistoric and Ancient Japan 1-icon.png[edit | edit source]

    The first people that settled in the Japanese archipelago were the 1-icon.png Native Islanders, followed by the 7-icon.png Native Austronesians who discovered the Ryukyu Islands and the 2-icon.png Ancient Siberians who discovered Hokkaido via the Sakhalin. Then they fused each other up into 1-icon (division).png Jomonball (14,000 – 1000 BC). It had a hunter-gatherer culture and made the finest pottery. Then the 1-icon.png Yayoi Japanball (1000 BC - 300 AD) arrived and brought new technology such as iron tools and rice cultivation. Japan became a settled agricultural society. The 1-icon.png Jomonballs and 1-icon.png Yayoiballs mixed and formed the modern Japanball.

    Classical Japan[edit | edit source]

    Like all historically existing formal regimes in Japan, its "leader de jure" is the Kousitsuball (皇室ボール), the Japanese Imperial Familyball, founded in 660 BC, the age of Jimmu (神武天皇). It makes Japanball as first oldest kingdom in the world that still exist today. There were long periods of clan warfare and civil wars. At first, Japanball practiced Shintoism before learning about Buddhism-icon.png Buddhism. After that, it started having emperors and eventually became a samurai. For most of Japanball history, it was ruled by military governments. The Shogun (supreme military dictator), the daimyo (feudal lords), and the samurai (military nobility, officers) ruled Japan from 1192 till 1868. After that, Kousitsuball was mostly a figurehead without real power. The nobility had limited power largely in the Imperial Court in Kyoto, so Japanball had many centuries of militarism as a "warrior" country where samurai, katanas (weapons), ninjas, and bushido were very important. After World War II, Kousitsu-ball became the "symbolic leader." no longer the "leader de facto." But it's true that Kousitsu-ball had been, and is still the leader de jure since 660 BC.

    Feudal Japan[edit | edit source]

    Japanball's clay is far from the Asian continent, so it was difficult for continental people to reach the Japanese islands. Moreover, the sea storms (tsunamis) and steep mountains made it nearly impossible and costly to invade. However, some, such as the Mongol Empire-icon.png Mongol Empireball, have attempted it.

    At one point, the Mongol Empire-icon.png Mongol Empireball had conquered most of Asia and Eastern Europe. It had tried to take Minamoto Clan-icon.png Kamakuraball's clay. Still, it couldn't work because of the mighty Kamikaze typhoon (神風) and Kamakuraball's fierce samurai. Kamakuraball resisted two different Mongol invasions in 1274 and 1281. The Ashikaga shogunate ruled Japanball from 1338 to 1573.

    Oda-icon.png Oda Clanball was an important daimyo (feudal lord). It unified much of Japanball in the Sengoku period (warring states) from 1560 to 1582 CE. The Oda-icon.png Oda Clanball successfully gained control over most of Japan's main island Honshu, and it went on to rule much of Japanball until it died in 1582. It was succeeded by its best friend, the daimyo Toyotomi-icon.png Toyotomi Clanball (Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the leader of the clan). It ended the Sengoku period (warring states of Japan). However, it ruled ruthlessly, dis-empowering those it hated and giving power to those it favored.

    In 1592, the Toyotomi-icon.png Toyotomi Clanball ordered the Japanese invasions of Joseon-icon.png Joseonball (1592–1598) to reach Ming-icon.png Mingball. It quickly captured Joseon-icon.png Joseonball's capital, but Admiral Yi won battles in the sea. The initial invasion was in 1592, which was a success. Then came a brief truce in 1596. After that, there was a second invasion in 1597, but Joseon-icon.png Joseonball, with the help of Ming-icon.png Mingball, managed to push it back. It retreated in 1597. Just before the final wars, the Toyotomi-icon.png Toyotomi Clanball died at 61 years old in 1598. This paved the way for Tokugawa-icon.png Tokugawaball to rise to power. Tokugawa would rule all of Japan as the Shogun (military dictator) from 1603 to 1867 CE.

    Japanball's fathers, Tokyo-icon.png Edoball and Tokugawa-icon.png Tokugawaball, were reclusive hermits and closed most of Japan from foreigners. However, Japanball allowed connections with westerners like the Dutch Empire-icon.png Dutch Empireball and PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Portugalball. Tokugawa-icon.png Tokugawaball was very skeptical of the barbarians gaijin such as the Dutch Empire-icon.png Dutch Empireball, UK-icon.png British Empireball, Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball, and USA-icon.png USAball. Japanball was isolated from gaijin from 1635 onwards, but in 1853 when USA-icon.png USAball arrived and taught it to open its markets, totally not through Gunship Diplomacy.

    Modern period[edit | edit source]

    During the late 1860s, revolutions began to sprout across the nation because the Shoguns could no longer protect Japan. It had to modernize to prevent westerners from exploiting and taking its clay. The Tokugawa-icon.png Tokugawaball Shogunate was replaced with the House of the rising Sun and a modern constitutional monarchy. Its leader Emperor Meiji held most of the power. Still, the Prime Minister was the real ruler of the Empire of Japanball. In 1868 Japan started actively trading with other European countryballs as well, but Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Germanyball had yellow fever (not a real disease). Japan modernized quickly and became the only industrialized non-western country in the world. It also built up a large and modern army and navy to capture Okinawa in 1873 and the Kuril Islands in 1875. Japanball looked at western colonial powers and started to imitate their behavior in Asia. In 1894, it went to war with Qing-icon.png Qing Chinaball. It defeated the backward Qing Empire the following year, taking its Formosan (Japanese Taiwan-icon.png Taiwanball) clay as punishment along with (Qingdao-icon.png Qingdaoball) In 1904-1905. Japanball would war with the Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball, and win with an overwhelming naval victory. It was the first time that an East Asian power defeated a western power in modern history. The Empire of Japanball solidified its status as the main superpower of East Asia. It took half of the Russian Empireball's Sakhalin clay. While Joseon-icon.png Joseonball was a vassal state of Ming-icon.png Chinese dynasties Qing-icon.png for centuries, Japan's victory would change the balance in the Far East. Japan was now the dominant power. So Japan annexed Korea, which became Japanese Korea-icon.png Japanese Koreaball. It developed an interest in extreme bondage and subjugation of its (unwilling) sex partners, Japanese Korea-icon.png Koreaball and Japanese Taiwan-icon.png Taiwanball; the former was raped in 1910.

    When World War I broke out in 1914, it fought with UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball as part of the Allies, capturing Germanyball's Chinese possession Tsingtao, and was granted a place in the League of Nations afterward. It also acquired Manchuria which was a puppet and later fully annexed as Manchukuo-icon.png Manchukuoball in 1932. But in the 1930s, it developed an interest in a kidnapping and raping Taiwan-icon.png Chinaball, which it did in 1937 before its new ally Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball attacked and raped France-icon.png Franceball. Oh and, even as neo-Nazi, Japan can into kawaii. It also kidnapped Second Philippine Republic-icon.png Philippinesball, British Singapore-icon.png Triangapore, British Hong Kong-icon.png Hong Kongball, French Indochina-icon.png French Indochinaball, Dutch East Indies-icon.png Dutch East Indiesball , Myanmar-icon.png Burmaball Papua New Guinea-icon.png Papua New Guineaball, Malaysia-icon.png Malaysiaball, and many pacific islands before brutally suppresing them and raping their women. However, they were "liberated" by USA-icon.png USAball, who also bombed ,or hurt badly, in its tentacles Hiroshima-icon.png Hiroshima and Nagasaki-icon.png Nagasaki parts. Japanball was shocked because it didn't have nuclear bombs. This lead to the only time in history that Japanball surrendered to a foreign power.

    Contemporary period[edit | edit source]

    In 1947, the Empire of Japanball lost all its overseas colonies, and it was reformed as the "State of Japanball" with liberal democracy. Its constitution was written by USA-icon.png USAball, which made it a pacifist country (article 9). Japanball has mixed pride and regrets for the Empire of Japanball. It learned from the past to do better. USA-icon.png USAball made it up to it by offering free psychotherapy sessions, aka the Marshall Plan, teaching it how to control its lust for its former colonies, and is now one of its best friends and trading partners. Japanball regained full independence in 1952. Japanball didn't have a military, but due to the Cold War and the threat of Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, it established the Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) in 1954.

    Japanball achieved rapid growth in the 1950s to become the second-largest economy in Za Warudo in 1970. This made Japanball great power again. However, the asset price bubble burst in 1992. After that, there was a decade of economic stagnation and low growth. Yet, due to a dispute over a part of Sakhalin-icon.png Sakhalin Oblastball's clay in the South Kuril Islands called Chishima (千島ボール) that were seized by Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball after the Empire of Japanball surrendered, Japanball didn't sign a peace treaty with Russia-icon.png Russiaball.

    Japanball became the third largest economy after China-icon.png Chinaball surpassed it in 2011. It can make anything but is very good at cars, ships, high-speed bullet trains, technology, and electronics. Japanese cartoons Anime (Japanese cartoons) became world-famous. It invented amazing TV shows like Takeshi's Castle, Ninja Warrior, and even Ajinomoto. No one ever wins!

    On March 11, 2011, an earthquake and tsunami destroyed a huge chunk of Japan's clay. It also caused a nuclear meltdown, poisoning a big chunk of Japan's clay. That was a very bad day for it.

    On April 14, 2016, MULTIPLE earthquakes struck the island of Kyushu. This caused the earthquake to transfer from Japan and Ecuador 3 days later, so now Ecuador-icon.png Ecuadorball blames Japan for damaging its country. Now the earthquake might trigger another one on the US west coast, but USA-icon.png USAball was glad that nothing happened after that.

    From 2012 to 2018, it got angry when North Korea-icon.png Kitachōsen fired missiles in the Sea of Japan.

    Japanball struggles with its pacifist 1947 constitution that prevents it from having a normal military. It has the Japan Self-Defense Forces, the 4th highest ranked in 2015. It has a security alliance with USA-icon.png USAball and relies on it for offensive military duties. USA-icon.png USAball wants Japanball to do more military activities in the alliance. Disputes with China-icon.png Chinaball caused Japanball's military resurgence. In 2015 collective-self defense was allowed. Japanball does more regional security in East and South-East Asia. However, there is still big opposition to changing article 9 of the 1947 constitution that was written by USA-icon.png USAball, and the disasters in Fukushima galvanized opposition to nuclear proliferation. The Tokugawa-icon.png samurai have not fully returned yet....

    On May 1, 2019, Crown Prince Naruhito became the new Emperor after Akihito abdicated the throne. He is a figurehead, a symbol of the state and unity of the people of Japanball.

    Shinzo Abe has resigned, and Japanball feels sad. Luckily, Yoshihide Suga has been chosen as the new Prime Minister, who will continue what Abe wanted to do but could not do.

    In 2021, Japanball can into hosting the Olympics!

    On September 3, 2021, Yoshihide Suga resigned due to controversy, and Fumio Kishida succeeded Suga as the prime minister on October 4.

    On July 8, 2022, its former prime minister Shinzo Abe was shot dead by Tetsuya Yamagami.
