The Japanese Empire is a nation in Asia and a Superpower.
Japan has a normal history up until 1538, when the Satomi and Ashikaga forces won the battle of Battle of Kōnodai. Soon, the Hōjō clan is defeated by 1545, and after that the Satomi clan went and conquered other clans and by 1575, Japan was unified under Satomi Yoshihiro. Then, in 1580, Japan went on a colonial expansion setting up colonies in Amazonia, Takamatsu, Africa, Oceania, and eventually, Europe. Beginning in the 1850s, Russia and Japan started to have conflicts over the Karafuto and Kuril Islands and then, in 1904, the Russian-Japanese war happened. Soon that war was won by Japan and Japan gained Kamchatka from Russia and other parts of Russia. Japan gained more land from Russia from the First World War as well, and after the Second World War Japan became one of the four superpowers. Japan (along with China and Korea) begun to have a cold war with the Soviet Union up until 1985 when the Soviet Union collapsed.
