11/9/12: A Restored Nation



It was 1946. America had defeated Japan with atomic bombs the year before. The US Government set up a territory on the Japanese island of Hokkaido. Japanese cities taken over by the US were kept, although their residents had to follow the Law of the US. Japan had control of only 23% of the island of Hokkaido. The US Territory began to thrive. Japanese and Americans filled the land. By 1954, it had a population of 3,450,109. Little did they know disaster would strike. In 1956, 4 typhoons struck the island and parts of Japan. 1,340,400 were dead from collapsing buildings, flooded cities, and lack of supplies for over 2 weeks. Soon, the territory was abandoned.

The land was abandoned for many years. Debris and the houses that remained started to rot and deteriorate. In 1996, a group of Americans and Japanese wanted to buy the land to start a new country. So it was, in 1997, a new country was officially started. The group named the new land Shihaisha. What they found was mostly forest and rubble. They removed and cleaned the ruins and debris and started from ground zero. It now has a population of 2,304,248. The residents live in either of 3 cities: Shisaido, Shiroku, or Nochi.


The actual pictures and storyline start in the next entry. This was just to give an idea of the history of Shihaisha, to get you ready for what's to come. Get excited, for I'm not even giving you a teaser. Hehe.
