Empire of the Blazing Sun

“We did not want war, but it has found us nonetheless. Honour demands that this matter be settled…permanently”
- General Oni, commander of Sword Army Third Division, to his subordinates prior to the razing of Singapore, 1868

The rise of the Empire of the Blazing Sun took the other major powers totally by surprise. In less than a century it has developed from an insular, almost medieval society into a major world power, with aspirations of imperial rule from the Yellow Sea to the Malay Peninsula, and further still, far across the Pacific Ocean. Starting from scratch in terms of an industrial and technological revolution has proven to be a boon to the Japanese, for they have been able to avoid many of the pitfalls and dead ends that other nations made before them, and have benefitted from observing and duplicating the best of foreign technologies.

But, as many foreigners have discovered, it does the Blazing Sun a great disservice to assume that their every advance has come about through blind duplication. For Japanese scientists and engineers, gathered under the auspices of the great Imperial Alchemical Institution in Kobe, have proven to highly innovative in their designs, and are served by a body of craftsmen who take an almost obsessive pride in the quality of their work, as befits the manner of smiths who beat and folded inferior metal ores time and again until they produced the deadliest and most effective of blades, the Samurai katana. From their origins on the Japanese home islands, the forces of the Blazing Sun have spread far and wide across the seas, and the empire’s striking flag now flies on lands from south Asia to South America. And although the young Empress Shinzua did not set out to provoke a war with the Britannians or anyone else, she is determined to capitalise on it so as to secure the gains of her predecessor and great-aunt the Empress Maya, as well as drive the grasping mercenaries of the East India Company well away from her empire’s borders.
