    Isolationism is a usually Nation.png nationalist, Nonquadrant.png non-quadrant ideology, which believes that its nation's interests are the most important, and it wants to keep the affairs of other countries at a distance.

    The term "Isolationism" can be interpreted more broadly as a foreign policy of military and political non-interference in international affairs and in the internal affairs of sovereign states, coupled with Protect.png Economic Nationalism and cultural isolation, as well as with the impossibility of being in permanent Necon.png military alliances NeoComBall.png, while maintaining the possibility of participation in temporary military alliances that meet the current interests of the state and in permanent international organizations of a non-military nature.

    History

    Cball-US.png USA Civlibert.png Plcn2.png

    The United States of America under President Coolidge.png Calvin Coolidge (from 1923 to 1929) was a great example of isolationism. Coolidge was a right-wing libertarian that wanted to shrink the government in many ways, especially by allowing more civil liberties, democracy, and capitalism to flourish. Coolidge also greatly reduced the US military budget to lower the US's impact on the world stage. He also rose tariffs to a MASSIVE extent to protect domestic industry. Basically, he wanted the United States to have an extremely small to non-existent impact on the rest of the world.

    Cball-Japan.png Japan

    Between 1641 and 1853, the feudal Cball-Tokugawa.png Tokugawa Shogunate of Japan pursued a policy called Kaikin, which forbade any contact with foreign countries. Despite that, Japan maintained limited trade and diplomatic relations with Cball-Qing.png Imperial China, the Cball-Joseon.png Joseon dynasty, and nearby Cball-Ryukyu.png Ryukyu Islands, as well as the Cball-DutchRepublic.png Dutch Republic, Japan's only Western trading partner for most of the period.

    In the mid-1860s, Regent Heungseon Daewongun, father of Emperor Gojong, pursued a policy of strict foreign policy isolation as he strengthened the army and began to equip it with the latest Japanese weapons, reorganized the military system, transformed the coast guard. The policy of isolation has strengthened Korean patriotism and protected their culture. Heungseon Daewongun was able to protect Joseon from cultural imperialism and westernization and thus protect Korea's heritage from it. He also wanted to avoid engaging with the West, which would have been inevitable if Western countries had been allowed to trade freely, as this would have worsened the state's influence.

    Modern-day Korean isolationism exists within the borders of Cball-North Korea.png North Korea and their Juche.png Juche ideology.

    Cball-Switzerland.png Switzerland

    In general, for most of its history, Cball-Switzerland.png Switzerland remained neutral in most military conflicts, including both World Wars. It also had a complicated relationship with the UN for a long time, with them not joining the organization until 2002 via a referendum.

    Following the traditional policy of neutrality, Switzerland in the 1950s and early 1960s faced difficulties in participating in various plans for European integration. In 1948, it joined the Organization for European Economic Cooperation, but refrained from joining the European Economic Community (what would later become the Cball-EU.png EU we know and "love" today). The obvious political goals of this organization were unacceptable to Switzerland. However, it became one of the founding members of the European Free Trade Association in 1959, and in 1963 joined the Council of Europe, once again demonstrating its interest in European cooperation. In 1972, a national referendum ratified a free trade agreement with the EU, which by 1977 had phased out tariffs on all industrial products.
