The Junishuan-Ojimese War [SIGN-UP]

Postby Ojima » Mon Sep 14, 2020 9:26 am

1891

Relations between Ojima and Junishu have broken down. Emperor Masamune, seeking to build an empire over the whole Pacific, attempted to diplomatically annex the Republic of Junishu, but the Junishuans have responded by expelling all Ojimese officials and imprisoning the Ojimese ambassador. The hostage situation has spiraled into war, and now the feared Dragon Fleet sails across the Southern Sea, ready for war. The Junishuans are gathering every man able to bear arms to defend their island home and calling upon all of their overseas allies, and throughout the islands the drums of war beat once more.

The Factions
Empire of Ojima
Ojima is a former colony of Japan, having gained its independence from the motherland in 1751 through force of arms. The Great Island quickly became a regional power in the Pacific, defending the Polynesian islands from Japanese expansion and becoming the mediator in all disputes. Recently, however, Ojimese exceptionalism has become popular thought among the upper class, and now Emperor Masamune, having conquered Nanjima ten-years prior, now seeks to expand his nation's borders across the South Pacific. In the minds of the Ojimese, their nation is the most civilized in their region and ought to be masters of the Pacific Ocean. Many nations would not have a vested interest in the victory of Ojima, but those nations are only a stumbling block to Ojima's destiny.

Republic of Junishu
Like Ojima, Junishu is also a former Japanese colony, but unlike their former allies the Junishuans formed a republican system. The Junishuans are slow to trust monarchies, so when the Ojimese came proposing that they form one Empire over the South Pacific the Junishuan government acted in the best interest of the nation and in the best interest of all of Polynesia and expelled the Ojimese diplomats and arrested the chief ambassador. Now the Imperialists are coming to take Junishu by force, and all that stands between them and regional conquest is an army built on common man's alliance. Whether the other nations will join their noble cause is yet to be seen.

Choose Your Side!
The fate of the South Pacific lies in this war. You can support either Ojima or Junishu by joining either as an allied nation or as an organization or individual interested in this conflict. Examples include "The Sultanate of Nekostan" for a state, "The Jurchen Riders" for a faction (a mercenary company in this case), or "John Doe" for and individual. The nations of Ojima and Junishu will be played by Ojima and Junishu respectively. We hope to see you on the battlefield. Good luck!

I would like to join as a state, the Confederation of Atlantian Dominions (occupying the geographic space of the United States of America + Canada if you’d prefer to stick with Real Life Earth geography), who will intervene to defend their fellow democracy and ally Junishu against the imperialist Ojima. An unstated but equally compelling motive for Atlantian intervention on the side of Junishu is to weaken Ojima as a contender for regional power in the Pacific.

Before I say anything else, would you be able to RP as either Canada or the US? That's an awful lot of manpower to be able to throw at low-population density nation.

While it is a population-dense territory, my IC military would not be wholly reflective of that. It would be closer to the US military of the time: a decent sized Navy and a small Army supplemented with volunteers. I don’t intend to bring a massive force to bear.

But I’m happy to reduce down to just the territory of the 48 continental United States, and if possible I’d like to own the islands of Hawaii, Samoa, and Guam as well, to establish that my nation has a Pacific presence and interests that merit getting involved in the war.

Sumatra will be supporting Ojima. In my notes, Sumatra is ruled by a monarchy, therefore it's likely that the Sumatrans would have some kind of diplomatic or marriage ties to Ojima.

You're approved!
BTW in my original plan, Guam is a Japanese colony and Samoa is technically a sovereign nation, but Hawaii would've already been hosting (by force) a US navy base and still have a majority native population. That said, I can grant Hawaii as an Atlantian territory and Samoa as a territory in all but name.

Also, for clarification, would your capital be Atlanta, Georgia?

Hawaii as a territory and Samoa as a technically independent put in reality puppet state works for me. The capital would be Cumberland, located on the site of IRL Philadelphia. The continent of North America would be either Atlantia or North Atlantia, so my nation name "Confederation of Atlantian Dominions" would be the replacement for the "United States of America."

You're a late comer, but if you're wanting to join now then I'd say that Ojima would be the better candidate, as the Ojimese are likely more homogenous than the Junishuans and thus have more time to study the classical philosophies.

I'm going to guess yes, because we were planning to give the South Island clans cavalry of their own.
