The Empire of Japan is a Japanese political entity that existed from the period from the Meiji Restoration in 1868. The country's rapid industrialization and militarization under the slogan Fukoku Kyōhei (富国強兵 ?, "Enrich the Country, Strengthen the Army"), led to its emergence as a world power.


The Empire won the Second Sino-Japanese War when China surrendered on April 18, 1938. They split China up, making a portion of it under Japanese control.
