    (Redirected from Showaism)

    Showa Statism also called Showa Nationalism and shortened Showaism was a totalitarian, culturally far-right, economically right-leaning (specifically corporatism) and expansionist ideology which was practiced and developed in Cball-Japan.png Japan during the first half of the reign of Emperor Showa (who was called Hirohito at the time). Showa Statism was a political syncretism of extreme ideologies in Japan. It developed over time from the Meiji.png Meiji Restoration, after they overthrew the Cball-Tokugawa.png Tokugawa Shogunate.



    Showa Statism's origins can be traced back to the Meiji Restoration. After the victory over China in the First Sino-Japanese War and over Russia in the Russo-Japanese War, Japan joined the Western powers. They needed a Strato.png strong military to secure Japan's new overseas empire which was reinforced by a feeling that only through a strong military would Japan earn the respect of Western nations. The period where it was the most prominent was during the dawn of the Showa.png Showa Period and throughout the Second World War. The first 20 years of Emperor Showa's reign it was characterized by extreme nationalism and a series of expansionist wars. It was a mixture of ideas such as Ultranat.png Japanese nationalism, Strato.png militarism, Fash.png fascism (while disputed by some), and Corptism.png corporatism, that was initiated by several political philosophers and thinkers in Japan. Those philosophers include Kita.png Ikka Kita, PanAsian.png Shumei Okawa, and Monarcho-Fascism.png Sadao Araki. Many had different views, which is why Showa Statism could be described as a syncretism of extreme ideologies of Japan. The military often criticized political parties under a liberal democracy and the complicity of the politicians with the Corptism.png zaibatsu corporate monopolies. Strato.png The military favored the Corptism.png state controlling the market, to reduce the attraction of Soc.png leftist ideologies like communism and socialism. This led to the rise of monopolies being formed during the Meiji Restoration, and some of those monopolies were owned by the state itself and the Corptism.png zaibatsus. This economic arrangement was in ways similar to the corporatist models of Fash.png European fascists.

    Strato.png Feburary 26th Incident (26-28 Feburary 1936)

    The February 26th Incident (二・二六事件) was an attempted coup d'état in the Empire of Japan. It was organized by young officers that support the Kodo-ha, with the goal of bringing about the "Showa Restoration," purging their political opponents (particularly the Tosei-ha) and restoring direct rule under House of Yamato.png Emperor Showa (Hirohito). Although they managed to assassinate several leading officials and occupy the government center of Tokyo, they had failed to assassinate Strato.png Prime Minister Keisuke Okada, secure control of the House of Yamato.png Imperial Palace, or get support from House of Yamato.png the Emperor. This resulted in the uprising being suppressed, the loss of Strato.png Koda-ha factional influence, and the Strato.png increase of military influence over the government.

    PanAsian.png Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere

    The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere is a concept used to justify the Showa.png Empire of Japan's JapImp.png imperialism. It promoted the cultural and economic unity of East Asians, Southeast Asians, South Asians, and Oceanians. It saw for its PanAsian.png Pan-Asian ideals of freedom and independence from the control of western powers. In practice, it was often used by Strato.png militarists and Nation.png nationalists, who saw an effective way to strengthen Showa.png Japan and advance its superiority within Asia.

    From 1910 to 1945, Korea was ruled as a part of the Empire of Japan. Upon its annexation, Japan declared that Korea would be officially named Chōsen.

    Cball-Taiwan.png Taiwan

    The island of Cball-Taiwan.png Taiwan was once a part of the Cball-Qing.png Qing Dynasty, however, was ceded to the Showa.png Empire of Japan in 1895 after the Showa.png Japanese victory in the First Sino-Japanese war. Cball-Taiwan.png Taiwan was Japan's first colony and Japanese intentions were to turn Taiwan into a model colony with much effort made to improve Taiwan's economy, public works, industry, cultural Japanization, and to support the essentials of Strato.png Japanese militarism in the Asia-Pacific.

    Cball-Manchukuo.png Manchukuo

    Cball-Manchukuo.png Manchukuo officially known as the Cball-Manchukuo.png State of Manchuria, also known as the Cball-Manchukuo.png Empire of (Great) Manchuria was a puppet state of the Showa.png Empire of Japan from 1932 to 1945. It was founded as a republic in 1932 after the Showa.png Japanese invasion of Manchuria (On September 18th, 1931, they invaded Manchuria prior to the Showa.png Mukden Incident. The war ended in 1932 and the Japanese established a puppet state of Manchukuo), and in 1934 it became a constitutional monarchy under the control of Cball-Japan.png Japan. Puyi was the Emperor of Cball-Manchukuo.png Manchukuo and was formerly the last Emperor of Cball-Qing.png China and the Qing Dynasty. Their occupation lasted until the success of the Cball-USSR.png Soviet Union and Cball-Mongolia.png Mongolia with the Manchurian Strategic Offensive Operation in August 1945.

    Cball-SouthVietnam.png Vietnam

    Japan would invade Vietnam, which was originally a colony of Cball-France.png France and was called French Indochina. The Imperial Japanese Army invade Vietnam in September 1940 which would result in the Japanese occupation of French Indochina. The Japanese tendered an official apology for the incident at Lạng Sơn on 5 October 1940. The Japanese-occupied towns were returned to French control and all French prisoners were released. They would occupy French Indochina until 1945. When the Allies invaded France in 1944, Japan suspected that the French authorities in Indochina might assist Allied operations in the region. Therefore, Japan deposed the French authorities in the spring of 1945, imprisoning the French administrators and taking direct control of Indochina until the end of the war. At that point, Vietnamese nationalists under the Viet Minh banner took control in the August Revolution and issued a Proclamation of Independence of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. The Japanese occupation of Indochina helped strengthen the Viet Minh and contributed to the outbreak of the First Indochina War in 1946 against French rule. WIP

    Cball-Indonesia.png Indonesia

    Cball-Indonesia.png Indonesia was once a Cball-Netherlands.png Dutch colony that was called the Cball-Netherlands.png Dutch East Indies. The Showa.png Japanese conquered the Cball-Netherlands.png Dutch East Indies rather quickly, and their invasion of the Cball-Netherlands.png Dutch East Indies would begin on 10 January 1942, and the Showa.png Imperial Japanese Army overran the entire colony in less than three months. The Dutch surrendered on 8 March. Originally, most Cball-Indonesia.png Indonesians welcomed the Showa.png Japanese as liberators from their Cball-Netherlands.png Dutch colonial masters. However, this would change as the Showa.png Japanese recruited between 4 and 10 million Cball-Indonesia.png Indonesians as forced laborers on economic development and defense projects in Java. In 1944–1945, Allied troops largely bypassed the Cball-Netherlands.png Dutch East Indies and did not fight their way into the most populous parts such as Java and Sumatra. As such, most of the Cball-Netherlands.png Dutch East Indies were under occupation at the time of Cball-Japanrawr.png Japan's surrender in August 1945.

    PanAsian.png Amau Doctrine Showa.png

    The Amau Doctrine is essentially an Asian Monroe Doctrine, stating that Japan has total responsibility for Asia, in order “to preserve peace and order in East Asia.” This justified Japan's imperialistic ambitions, like the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere, and can be seen later when Prime Minister Kōki Hirota announced justified Japanese expansion into northern China as the creation of "a special zone, anti-communist, pro-Japanese and pro-Manchukuo" that was a "fundamental part" of Japanese national existence.

    Cball-Taiwan.png Second Sino-Japanese War Showa.png

    The Second Sino-Japanese War is a conflict fought between the Cball-Taiwan.png the Republic of China and the Showa.png Empire of Japan. The war made up the Chinese theater of the wider Cball-US.png Pacific Theater of the Second World War. The start of the war is historically dated to the Marco Polo Bridge Incident on 7 July 1937, when a dispute between Showa.png Japanese and Cball-Taiwan.png Chinese troops in Peking escalated into a full-scale invasion. This war is often regarded as the start of the Second World War in Asia. Following the Marco-Polo Bridge Incident, the Showa.png Japanese were able to score major victories such as capturing large cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, and the Cball-Taiwan.png Chinese capital of Nanjing in 1937, which would result in the Rape of Nanjing. Prior to failing to stop the Showa.png Japanese forces in the Battle of Wuhan, the Cball-Taiwan.png Chinese government was relocated to Chongqing. While Japan ruled the large cities, it lacked the adequate manpower to control Cball-Taiwan.png China's vast countryside. By 1939, after Chinese victories in Changsha and Guangxi, the war reached a stalemate. The war would end on September 2nd, 1945, resulting in the Showa.png Japanese surrendering to the Allies.

    Cball-US.png Pacific War Showa.png

    The Pacific War, was the theater of World War II that was fought in Asia, the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean, and Oceania. It was geographically the largest theater of the war. The tensions between the West and Japan have been building up. On December 7th the Japanese would launch a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, with the goal of crippling the United State's fleet. The Japanese had gambled that the United States when faced with such a sudden and massive blow and loss of life, would agree to a negotiated settlement and allow Japan free rein in Asia, however, this gamble did not pay off and only provoked the United States to join the war. Before the attack, the American public opposed joining and intervening in the war with Europe as they had just fought World War One. That soon vanished after the attack. Thailand would become allies with Japan on December 21st. To the south, the Imperial Japanese Army seized the British colony of Penang on 19 December. Hong Kong was attacked on 8 December and fell on 25 December 1941, and American bases on Guam and Wake Island were lost at around the same time. In January, Japan invaded British Burma, the Dutch East Indies, New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands and captured Manila, Kuala Lumpur, and Rabaul. WIP


    Due to the fact that Showa Japan was militarily allied with Nazi.png Nazi Germany and Cball-King-Italy.png Fascist Italy and shared ideological similarities, Showa Statism is usually taken to be a type of Fash.png Fascism, although this is disputed by some. Showa Statism is a syncretism of extremist ideologies. Some believed to unify the Asian race under the sacred rule of the emperor, some believed it was their destiny to liberate Asia from Western powers. Showa Statism is anti-western, anti-liberal, anti-communist, and anti-capitalist.

The netto-uyoku are individuals with xenophobic and racist views and they generally convey support for historically revisionist views that portray the former Showa-kanmuri.png Empire of Japan in a positive way. They are compared with the western Altr.png Alt-Right due to their similarities
