Japan is a sovereign island nation in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies off the eastern coast of the Asian mainland and stretches from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the southwest.
Japan was ruled by the Liberal Democrats from 1955-1993, 1994-2009, and from 2012-2021. Since 2021, the Liberal Democratic Party had begun to decline due to scandals and issues, and have never won another election since, and were dissolved in 2029.
In the mid to late 2020s, Japan has formally apologised properly for their war crimes, the Yasukuni Shrine had disposed of enshrined war criminals (especially the Class A war criminals), and the whitewashing of history in Japan became banned. A law similar to Germany's Strafgesetzbuch law's forbidding hate speech was also put into place, and denial of Japan's war crimes are now forbidden and breaking the law is met with jail time. Nationalist, right-wing and far-right parties also became banned under the new law.
