The State of Japan is an island country in East Asia.
In 1948, Japan passed two laws: one that bans nationalist and far-right parties; and the another law is passed stating that any Japanese denying any war crimes will result in a big fine and a jail sentence.
Later in 1950, Japan passed a new law that bans the use of whitewashing of any kind, especially in history textbooks. Any book that contains any sympathy to Japanese imperialism are outright banned; and the writer heavily fined, arrested, and sent to jail for five years; and the publisher is also heavily fined with legal actions taken against them. Hate speech is also outright banned and prohibited; and anyone caught speaking out in a hateful manner are fined and also sent to jail. Later that year, Anti-discrimination laws were passed that protects any non-Japanese from discrimination; and that anyone found discriminating against non-Japanese will be heavily fined and face some jail time. In another law, women were given equal rights.
In 1951, Japan voted on a new flag design, called the Miyaginohagi, and made it the new official flag of Japan; replacing the old one.
In 1968, new ancient ruins were found by Japanese Archaeologists in northern Honshu, and an investigation was launched to study the new artefacts.
