The Imperial Confederation of Saigyō (Finnish:Imperiumin Elinkeinoelämän Saigyō, Japanese:西行連盟帝国 Saigyō Renmei Teikoku; Malay:Imperialis Pergabungan Saigyō) is a nation in Asia.
It was formed in May 2nd, 1937 after the marriage of Empress Mikaela Tanaka and Sultan Ahmad Tajuddin. The nations of Shogunate of Kōshi and Brunei then merged together into the confederation. The wedding day was made a national holiday for the confederacy, known as Confederation day. Confederation day is celebrated with an Imperial parade taking place in the capital with lots of other events taking place across the nation. Festivals often take place during Confederation day lasting until the early hours of the morning which feature stalls, booths, fireworks, parades, banquets, drinking, singing, dancing and sporting events.
Ever since Wonderlaand declared independence in 1945, the Kōshis were provoked. During the Swedish Protests in Finland in 1947, a few Kōshis volunteered to help shut down the rebellion. In 1948, the Kōshis begun to protest against the Swedish actions. By 1949, the protests gone worse, though Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen tried to calm them down, but was somewhat successful.
In 1950, the Republic of Kazami joined the nation and the Region of Kazami was added.
In 1952 Jorma Aimoto and a few other Kōshis create and release an Anti-Swedish film, called Two Headed Snake. The film is about if the Swedish Empire survived the 1889 issue, and continued on This ruthless, power-hungry Sweden, soon managed to be a step ahead of it's enemies and by 1908 the World War broke out and by 1930 Sweden became a vast global empire, being slightly larger then the OTL British; By 1950 Russia finally crumbled and Sweden proceeded to annex much of it; Later, a new Cold War begins between Sweden and the Asian Council; By 1980 the last of the Asian Council crumbles and the world becomes filled with Swedish puppets and vassals.
In 1953 Jorma Aimoto and a few other Kōshis create and release yet another Anti-Swedish film, called Alice In Wonderlaand; this film features Alice Margatroid living in Wonderlaand offering to help the Wonderlaanders re-establish their Sweden again. Soon, Alice becomes the new leader after the last one was assassinated by a Russian, and begins to declare war against the Danish; by using her puppeting magic, she manages to defeat the Danes and release Sweden; however soon Sweden restarted their empire again, quickly absorbing all of Northern Europe and proceeds to easily conquer most of North America with the help of Alice; France and Hungary now angered at the Swedes actions declare war against them but lose; eventually the members of the Asian Council all merge into one nation, the Dai-tō-a; with Sanae Kochiya being the great defender of the East, she soon wages a cold war against Wonderlaand and Sweden; and finally by around 1989 the World War begun again, though this time with world resistance and the powerful Dai-tō-a, Sweden was crushed and defeated, and soon Alice and Wonderlaand was destroyed, too; in the end of the film, a rabbit with a playing card (the 7 of diamonds) passes by and peace in the world soon follows.
In 1960, Jorma Aimoto made an hilarious sarcastic satire film portraying that Italy is completely run by the Mafia and is nothing more than a Mafia Paradise; and the films also goes along in a story-line somewhat similar to the OTL film of The Godfather. Also in 1960, it was decided between the Empress and Emperor that WMDs would be established in the nation to better protect themselves.
In 1963, Sunda had joined the nation as a new region.
In 1966, Shogun Hazuki Mikkola made a reform making the Shogun post an elected position, having 5 years in office and 5 terms maximum. This caused many Kōshis and Kazamis be very unhappy, since they were never used to voting or anything of the sort.
In 1967, elections happened and Malam Ishikawa from Sunda became Shogun, and also was the first male to be elected for Shogun. This caused many Kōshis and some Kazamis to get very angry about having a male run as Shogun, and some don't even trust him. Soon the character Sirkku became very popular, as the new law was condemned as being a 'Sirkku' move and former Shogun Hazuki Mikkola and the new male Shogun was being compared to Sirkku as well. Soon Sirkku rose in even more popularity the following year.
In 1969, Jorma Aimoto makes another film, this time anti-war film; it is called 1000 Yöt (1000 nights); it has famous villain Alice Margatroid featuring Sirkku go on a trip together and soon cause many events that turns the tensions between Europe and Asia against them, and soon causes the collapse of many large nations being torn to shreds and many new nations being formed; and in the end all neutral nations, along with Hungary, manage to survive and remain intact.

Official language is Finnish, Japanese, Nirandogo (にらんど語), and Malay. Russian is also spoken in some places, mainly in the island of Borneo where the former Russian colony was located. Similarly to the Russian situation, Italian is spoke in places where the former Italian colonies in Borneo were located. For religion, Shintō and Finnish paganism, Hindu, and Islam are the main religions practised in the confederacy; Buddhism, Christianity and Schmittism are practised to a lesser extent too.
The Region of Kōshi is purely filled with only Shintō and Finnish Paganism, though a tiny bit of other religions can be found. In Kōshi, Shintō Shrines, and a small amount of Buddhist and Hindu Temples can also be found; there is no Churches to be found in Kōshi, as Christianity is not tolerated at all by most of the population; Mosques can be found, but only in limited locations (usually around coastal cities), as while Islam is only tolerated to an extent.
In the Region of Brunei, Hindu and Buddhist Temples, as well as Mosques are found, while a few Churches exist. Census records show Brunei is around 62% Hindu, 23% Muslim, 6% Buddhist, 5% Christian, and 4% other (Shinto, schistists, etc.) While Hinduism is the main religion in Brunei because the royal family are non-Hindu and instead Muslim, to keep peace on the island, Brunei practices a policy of religious secularism. This policy was extended to the whole confederacy in 1943 after a set of new guidelines for the Confederacy make the confederacy officially a secular multi-cultural nation, one which respects the life choices of all of its citizens minus illegal criminal activities of course.
In the Region of Kazami, Shintō, Finnish Paganism, and Islam are main religions. Maylay, Finnish, and Nipponese are all spoken on equal levels.
In the Region of Sunda, it is unknown for now.
The Imperial Confederation of Saigyō also has a moderate Anti-Swedish sentiment, mainly in the Region of Kōshi. This is due to the dominance of Sweden over Finland throughout the course of history. The confederacy is friendly with Nippon, especially in the Brunei region as Nippon helped Brunei in the Bruneian civil war of 1915-20.
The government is a Constitutional Monarchy which aims to uphold the constitution of the confederacy, and the heavenly rule of the monarch. The Monarchs is the Head of State but holds little actual power, as the Shogun leads the Confederate Diet which is the diet which rules over the entire confederacy. The Shogun is also the commander in chief of the Confederacy's military forces. Each nation in the confederation (Kōshi, Brunei, Kazami, Sunda) then also have their own national diet to rule over their own nation in the confederacy, sort of like how you have the federal government and the state government in OTL USA. The leader of a national diet is called a prime minister (e.g. the prime minister of Brunei, prime minister of Kōshi, the prime minister of Kazami, or the prime minister of Sunda). The prime minister of a nation is also the commander in chief of that nation's national guard, however they can be overruled by the Shogun in times of war, as the Shogun is the commander in chief of the whole confederacy's military forces.
