Hi guys, been a lurker here and now its time for me to join in the fun. So here is my first post and my first AAR on these forums.
So this first post is to give you all an idea of whats going on, and to get the mundane pre-war buildup out of the way. Hirohito's Revenge.
This is an AAR that follows the rebuilding of the Japanese Empire that was rudely taken away from them by the hands of the Allied forces in the latter stages of World War II.
The long term ideology surrounding this is to re-take those lands that Japan had called thier own in the early stages of WWII. This means retaking of Taiwan, Indonesia (Borneo, Java, Sumatra), Malaysia (Malaya), Papua New guinea (New Guinea), Solomon Islands (including Guadal canal).
From there a northen front to enter Thailand, Mayanmar (Burma) and China (French Indo-China and Manchuria) and South Korea (Korea). The Southern Islands of Pacific Islands (Guam) need to be retaken also. From there if not defeated by possibly the entire world, who will be fighting me in due time; we will move west towards the Middle East, and perhaps a southern front to head for Austrailia, (East for the USA is a possibility also, so many options!).
So here is a few bits of information regarding the starting position of Japan, watered down as to not add a huge amount of insignificant details.

Jan 1st 2020: Ragu takes over leadership of the Democratic nation of Japan. Japan is in serious financial difficulty, almost 7,000,000 M in debt. In fact the highest starting debt in game! Which will proove to be a nightmare to repay.
