The Foundation of the Korean Empire

During the ambitious First Han Dynasty the Kingdom of Korea was conquered and brought under the hegemony of the Emperor of Sinica. Korea had developed a culture that was unique to its region. That culture spoke differently from the Sinicans and their peninsula served as a bridge between the Empires of Sinica and Japan. The development of Korea while under Han dominion gave it the resources to establish its own kingdom when it was able to take such an opportunity. After the First Sinican Civil War, which brought an end to the Han Dynasty and started the Second Warring States Period, Korea sought to make its claim to the world. They extended up the coasts of Asia and even were so bold as to take the island of Kuye 庫頁 (Sakhalin) above Hokkaido. The Kingdom of Bei was the main enemy of the Korean Empire, as the Japanese were yet to attack mainalnd Korea. Bei and Korea maintained many different aspects of war but they were not able to hold them up in the end. The large Japanese Empire encircled the Koreans and eventually took most of their most valuable land. The Japanese left the peninsula to the Koreans out of a treaty with the SInicans and they ignored it from then on. Korea chose to remain nonaligned in the years after the loss of its greatness though it was able to extend itself to the Tamen 圖們 and Yalu 鴨綠 River.
