The Great Gigaversal Confederation - Empire is a Confederacy/Constitutional Monarchy. The "Confederation" part means Gigaverse is a Confederacy, where nations can always join in the name of the Unity and maintain their own independence. The "Empire" part is the Holy Patriarchal Empire of Nagulan, with the capital hive-metropolis Omega Area (or Area Omega), and scattered colonies, territories and client states everywhere across the universes.

The Confederacy is separated into nations, each represented with their respective head(s) of state, who still exercise their rules normally. The leaders of the Confederacy are the Confederal Diet, acting as the international body that maintains peace, order and the Unity. The Diet is also divided into the Senate and the House of Representatives, where politicians can be elected into different positions of president, prime minister, et cetera... no matter which party they're from.

The Empire, however, is called a "Liberal Dictatorship". It's so called because the Imperial Government is ruled by the Emperor, the Patriarchy, the Bakufu (the Shogunate, consisting of five-star generals/Shoguns) and the Iron Fist Council of Steel, the latter being a monopoly of non-party politicians and the Liberal Party. Minor provinces and territories are ruled by Taishou's (Great Generals), four-star Imperial Generals.

The Mugen Tengoku is a basically boundless interstellar human-dominant empire, the ultimate authority of the human race in the 3rd Millennium AI. The founder and absolute authority of the Tengoku is the God-like Rector Humanitatum (English: Ruler of Humankinds - Japanese: Jikazuya no Shihaisha, literally "Manipulator of Harmonic Human Families"), who founded the Tengoku a very long time ago (a period that cannot be measured by mere numbers); how He came to found it, however, or whether He still exists, or has existed physically at all, is everyone's question. Nevertheless, He continues to be the nominal political master of the Tengoku; with the Shogunate (Japanese: Bakufu; Latinus: Administratio Tabernaculorum; both literally "Tents' Government/Administration"), a council of Shoguns (Japanese: Shougun; Latinus: Legati) - highest-ranked military generals doubling as highest-ranked politicians - answering to His will.

The peoples of the Tengoku live in a world where they know alternate versions of them exist, but can never get in touch with said alternates; for the Tengoku is so vast a domain, counting the number of any kind of physical astrological systems under its rule is a lifetime-consuming task. Despite its vastness, order and peacefulness is maintained throughout the realms of the Tengoku; which could only lead the people of the Tengoku to sometimes wonder why.

The Tengoku is a lonesome empire, for there are no political entities (if at all) with territories to truly match such the size of it. Because the territories of the Tengoku cannot be measured, and whatever political entity to be founded out in the vastness of space (also helped expanded and regulated by the Tengoku), the term "Apeiron" is coined to refer to "everything and beyond", which the Tengoku has a firm grip of.

Citizens of the Tengoku has little day-to-day contact with the Tengoku, unless they serve in its administrative bureaus, such as the Pacific Police Force, Strategic Espionage Command or the military; or even dare to think of violent criminal activity. They can mostly lead their lives as they believe they should, follow their ideologies and practice anything; as long as it doesn't involve harming others.

The Tengoku is primarily an interstellar tribute empire, allowing its member systems to largely govern themselves as they please - as long as they recognize the power of the Rector and the authority granted upon His servants; and also meet resource quotas collected every one decade - resources that become either part of the Rector's income (the process is questionable nowadays, however, as the Rector has all but disappeared from political activities and certainly, economic activities, for a long time) or support the overall economy of the Tengoku through necessary resource redistribution.

With a mostly utopian lifestyle and overall progressive societies within a well-protected empire, the Tengoku is the result of countless ages of the striving of Humankinds to achieve a single unified ultimate master race. Without the Tengoku and Mankinds' faith in the guidance of the Rector Humanitatum, the human race would have become extinct long ago.

- Mugen Tengoku: Overview of the Mukokuseki Utopia (All Tech/OUTDATED BUT RECYCLABLE)

Since the Unity consists of so many species (that are reluctantly also resistant to nearly the same many diseases), sometimes people have difficulties telling the name of a different species. So, they ought to stay away from differing species, and chose a better solution.

Advanced technologies mean changes in genetic features. Each species has their own sub-species, but a better way to tell differences is based on a thing called "dimension".

It's rather strange, but Gigaverse actually has people of "different dimensions". Not the "homeland" kind of dimensions, it's the "2D, 3D" kind of dimensions. A list of the simpler among these dimensions are listed below:

  • Hachi-bistic (8-bit): These people looks rather... squarish in nature, and their talking sounds mostly funny to the others. However, it doesn't matter, since they are still parts of the Unity.

  • Futa-istic (2D): These people looks like what a manga artist would draw. It's really offensive to tell them they don't exist right in front of their faces.

  • Mitt-istic (3D): Compared to the previous two, the Mitt-istic people looks more "realistic" in nature, but they still look like they're created with cyber technologies (or something similar). Mitt-istic and Futa-istic girls had become ideal images in the eyes of Jissai-istic fetishists (they call themselves otaku's).

  • Jissa-istic ("Real-istic"): The "most realistic" in this list, Jissai-istic people may be less "fetishized", but are also naturally the weirdest. Should not be confused with the Mitt-istic, however beautiful they are.

  • Poly-istic ("Multi-istic"): These are the most confusing kinds, either they were born naturally like this, or simply hybrids of different types. Depending in different elements, it can be determined by someone if a Poly-istic person looks like which of the above. Most of the time, a Poly-istic person could be seen as Futa-istic or Mitt-istic based on the elements and surrounding environments. Some Poly-istic people can restyle themselves into a different form that could be observed in unison by others. They are hardly ever seen in Jissa-istic, and to an even lesser extent, Hachi-bistic, although these looks have been seen before.

Thanks to population plannings, each of these groups are more or less equal when compared to another group.

- Telling the Differences among the Unity (OUTDATED BUT RECYCLABLE)

The Confederal Economy is a mixed economy. Being an over-stretched superpower, to maintain everything in its place, Gigaverse must also has a frighteningly large economy. Gigaverse's economy is automated, but not completely; so it can achieve superabundance without having its economy crashed if automatic machinery stops working (by using manual and man-participated labor).

Any industries within Gigaverse generates huge revenues. However, the chief five industries of Gigaverse are:

  • Solidite Mining and Refining: Solidite, a hard, non-lethal crystal that's used in many other major industries: Arms Manufacturing, Power Generation, etc. Although Solidite mines are abundant, they're located in geographically dangerous sites such as volcanoes, snowy regions, deserts... And since Solidite has so many uses, the Solidite Mining and Refining industry creates many jobs as well as great wages. There are rumors that the Solidite miners had become even richer than an engineer, but all are just rumors. Kel-Shiss Mining Corporation is an example of a successful Solidite Mining company.

  • Synthetic Industry: The Synthetic Industry is responsible for the creation of "anything that can be synthetic", ranging from artificial lifeforms to artificial planets, sunlight, etc. There's a dispute between this industry and Solidite Mining, it is not known whether which industry generates more budgets than the other. Synthetik Incorporated is currently the biggest player within the Synthetic Industry.

  • Arms Manufacturing Industry: How can an entity be a great military power without a proper Arms Manufacturing industry? Who will create the all-purposed vehicles, orbital plasma cannons and talking robotic suits with great combat capabilities? Who's in charge of building Imperial spaceships, transports or capital ships? Certainly Arms Manufacturing industry, and Stratotech Corporation is the greatest of the list of Arms Manufacturing companies, recruiting smart designs of scientists everywhere to create new weapons and defense systems.

  • Renergy Industry: Surely, for a citizen of a Confederal member nation or an Imperial subject, the Renergy Industry is, although not the biggest, still too big to be sorted out of being one of the most successful industries of Gigaverse. Renergy can be created from anything, it can be Solidite, it can purely be non-organic and organic trash, it can be lethal gas... And most of all, unlike electricity or nuclear power in the past, Renergy is just as harmless as it is expensive, thus making the Renergy Industry as big as it currently is. Eco-Drive Group is one of the main generators of Renergy within Gigaverse.

  • Entertainment Industry: Yes, Gigaverse is not a place where people work and get bored to death. The Entertainment Industry is behind the works to provide Confederal citizens with the best entertainments available, ranging from old-school cartoons to anime, manga, video games, novels, etc. Similar to the dispute between Solidite Mining and Synthetic Industry, the Entertainment Industry and Renergy Industry also have a rivalry when it comes to who's the larger profit generator. Unlike other industries, there are many successful names within the field of Entertainment, and it is better for one not to choose any as stand-out.

- The Confederal Economy (FT) (SEMI-OBSOLETE)

Gigaverse is a military power, thus owns many military technologies in their hands, with the exception of nuclear technologies. They can travel between different universes in a blink of an eye, and also maintain their armed forces in Cyberspace, different dimensions and the Net. A notable feature of the Confederal and Imperial army is, they can act as both the police force and the military.

Gigaverse's Armed Forces are divided into two halves: one being the Confederal Armed Forces, mostly for self-defense measures, and the other being the Imperial Armed Forces, kept for all-purpose combat. The Imperial Armed Forces are called the "Red Army", because Gigaversal samurai's, shinobi's, legionnaires and some other types of troops are wearing Red, one of the two national colors. (There's exceptions with the Black Capes, elite veterans within the military, and the Yellows, "conventional combatants" within the Armed Forces.)

Training within the Armed Forces is harsh, and the basis of training procedures for male soldiers is "survive or die". Training for females is one level easier to breath (without the "dying" element, and a bit easier than just that, too). Healthy males within the Confederation should serve the military at least once within their lifetime, while healthy males in the Empire are drafted into the Armed Forces when they're 18, in some cases, 16 and 17. Those joining into combat must master moves of various types of martial arts.

There is a list of several important technologies maintained by the Armed Forces:

  • A6M2 Zero:

    To have a military like Gigaverse's without Zero Fighters would be a crime! And so, the famed Zero used during Pearl Harbor was once again restored as a proud black stealth plane piloted by the best, most well-trained and disciplined combat aviators of Gigaverse. Both the Confederal and Imperial Armed Forces operate these planes in combat.

  • Gigamech: The Gigamech is based on many mechanical weapons in the past, designed to have supreme firepower and weaponry, as well as other combat capabilities. Gigamechs, as their name implied, are gigantic mechanical lifeless Solidite-armored suits, operated by soldiers of either the Army, Navy, Air Force or Space Corps. This type of weapon ensures Imperial military superiority on the battlefield. There had been several generations of Gigamechs created, mostly similar to each other.

  • Flying/Floating/Mobile/Space Fortress: Of course, a military power should have moving fortresses with armed warheads and Solid Shields ready. Military Fortresses like these can often transform between a huge vessel, a gigantic aircraft, an immense armored vehicle and a fortified spaceship, carrying armed units inside to provide extra firepower to the already powerful fortresses. The Armed Forces had a great number of these fortresses in case of emergency and warfare.

  • Space Stations: An interstellar empire is nothing without maintaining space stations across its star systems. While civilian space stations and scientific space stations can be abundant, those meant for military purposes should always be there for scenarios like an invasion from space, which calls for nearest stationary units to act. Space stations across the Confederation - Empire's star systems have become common sights for common people, soldiers and politicians alike.

  • Kodiak Missiles: Sure, the Armed Forces don't own any nuclear weaponry, for nuclear-related thingies are banned in Gigaverse. However, they do maintain missiles made from an older portion of Solid series of technologies for their own purposes. Kodiak Missiles can guide themselves to avoid obstacles; once detonated, activates hive-bugs to salvage anything seemingly friendly (not yet mentioned in the Armed Forces' database), and completely destroy anything within their database (which is usually updated regularly to prevent enemies from being healed). These missiles, with their pros, also had their cons, however they are still better than nuclear weaponry, and are still maintained by the Armed Forces in large numbers for their usage. To threaten their enemies, the Empire always points the Kodiaks their directions.

    By November 16th, 2012, Gigaverse possesses over approzimately 150,000 Kodiak warheads. This significant number was due to the Kodiak, by the time, was still being improved, it was still cheap and very easily manufactured (by Gigaverse's Arms Manufacturing Industry and not someone else, of course).

  • Orbital Plasma Cannons: These things spell: "Don't mess with Gigaverse". Orbital Plasma Cannons have been entrusted quiet a role within the Armed Forces' tasks. They are easy to be re-orbited, their firepower destroys anything in their paths, they're planted under every military space stations, and are protected by military units and Solid Shields. Their only disadvantage is Renergy supply usage; which is a bit depressing in the name of the military. Should the enemies shoot anyone from Gigaverse, their government and army can always say hello to these cannons and say goodbye to their families.

  • Kamikaze Drone Arsenal: Kamikaze tactics using swarms of auto-pilot, semi-intelligent, explosive-planted drones make things seemingly much easier for the Armed Forces. The Kamikaze Drones can identify incoming bullets, dodge away, then continue with its task of crashing into a chosen target. Making such drones is the easiest task a military manufacturing facility can receive, which makes them always available to the Armed Forces. Better watch out if your house had become a target of these things, for they come in big numbers!

  • Transforming Vehicles: Although the Armed Forces are divided into four parts, they're nearly all-synchronized because of one simple reason: Vehicles that can transform between planes, ships, vessels and sometimes, spaceships. This kind of transformation comes in handy-dandy in many situations. Most vehicles of the Armed Forces had been created being these types of weapons.

  • VX Gas: Classified, but this thing is nasty...

  • TOTALITY Defensive Systems: Having offensive weapons without owning defensive systems sounds as stupid as bullying the bear cub in front of the mother bear, since opponents can steal the offensive technologies or make similar toys at any time. TOTALITY Defense Systems always have up-to-date databases of new threats, new types of weapons, etc... every single second, plus an invisible threat-scanning system, missile-redirecting system... making its role incredibly important to the Armed Forces of Gigaverse.

There are also other types of minor technologies that might worth mentioning. However, they should be mentioned during some other occasions...

- Confederal Armed Forces - Overview (MT + FT) (OUTDATED BUT RECYCLABLE)

"You can view us with total disgust, hatred, fear or anything. But after all, we oppress our people to protect them from your lying, cowardly lots out there that seek to topple us. We kill, so that your hatred is focused us. We prepare our katana's, our plasma cannons, inter-universal fleets and remain vigilant always, so that you watch out for us, and stay away from messing with us. We act as if we are your rulers, so you will fear us. And again, we kill much more than you, so as to make the number of genocides you've completed nothing noticeable. In the end, we sacrifice for the greater good. We are, the Empire." ~An Imperial Minister.

When it comes to the two entities that govern Gigaverse, the Empire is the more aggressive, authoritarian (or even totalitarian) and brutally genocidal entity of Gigaverse, acting as a good mix between liberal, conservative, Nazi, theocratic, stratocratic and totalitarian ideals.

The Empire is called a "Liberal Dictatorship". It's so called because the Imperial Government is ruled by a bureaucratic line of rulers: the Emperor (who in reality exercises little power, if the Emperor does), the Confederal Senate, the Patriarchy, the Bakufu (the Shogunate, consisting of five-star generals/Shoguns), the Iron Fist Council of Steel (alternatively the Empire's own version of the Taisei Yokusankai), the latter being a monopoly of non-party politicians and the Liberal Party. Minor provinces and territories are ruled by Taishou's (Great Generals), four-star Imperial Generals.


The Symbol of the Empire, thus its many ruling organizations (except the Liberal Party)

A man once described what would happen if the Empire and Gigaverse's allies were people (but not the Confederation): "He would seek to rule over everyone else; he would not fear to step on anyone he thinks is not worthy of their lives; he would climb even the highest mountains to prove he's not a coward. He would beat up those he doesn't know, just so that he can make them his new friends or kill them without mercy. He would look at his friends, old or new, with eyes that say "touch me and I will rape you". He even goes as far as to force his friends to join the Confederation. He's fully rational of what he's doing, but chose to do them as if he was a psychotic madman, or megalomaniac."

The Empire's logistics had always been strange to outsiders, as to why they maintain such a large police force, military and totalitarian rule over their people, and even tried to rule over everything they see. Their reasoning: "We bring what's the best to the good, and what's the worst to the bad."

Calling the Empire genocidal isn't completely right, as they still try to see if their former enemies were favorable, and "re-educate" their entire race to become part of the Unity, or do something similar to that, such as changing their DNA, etc. Meanwhile, disliked ones were put to the Imperial list for something much grander than a mere "Holocaust".

Meanwhile, Area Omega, considered the Capital of the Empire, even made the Empire worse in the face of others, even Confederal citizens: A hive-metropolis with a high-rising tower at its core that serves as the central part of the Celestial Palace/Palace Celestium, the Imperial palace with a rooftop that encompasses the entire 100-story metropolis to the North of the planet Caelum. The area had got all kinds of goods among other things arriving from all the places, serving the people and the Imperial rulers there, while Imperial subjects suffered.

Due to being so brutal a deliberately totalitarian state, the Confederal Charter was also used on the Empire, limiting the number of moral and rights violation by its rulers as well as effective Imperial participation in Confederal affairs, although the Empire had also got itself a minor, fluctuating Imperial Charter.

However, after all, it is their reasoning "we do it for people" that still got many stuck with thinking one thing:

Is the Empire the best incarnation of evil, or the bloodiest but least evil incarnation of good?

- The Great Gigaversal Empire (FT) (OBSOLETE)

One finds it hard to whether call the Tengoku a flawed democracy or a free dictatorship. Nevertheless, the Tengoku continued to work with its Political Machinery to control its various Territories.

(Positions that could be appointed/relieved by higher-ups underlined, Heritable positions in italic, Positions with requisition of election in red)

Highest Level - National: The Tennou/The Iron Fist Councilor

2nd Adm. Lv. - National: The Council of Steel, The Central Kin (Members of the Imperial Family and families bonded to it through marriage - considered "National Aristocracy"), Supreme Shogun, Chancellor of the Senate, Governor of Eden (Results post-election will have to be approved by the Tennou)

3rd Adm. Lv. - National: The Senate (higher branch of the National Diet - the Chancellor is excepted), Chosen Shogun

4th Adm. Lv. - National: The People's House (lower branch of the National Diet - members of Sub-National People's Council instantaneously become People's Representatives), The Shogunate

Highest Level - Territorial: Governor (Eden's Governor is National Level)

2nd Adm. Lv. - Territorial: The Territorial Aristocracy/Nobility, The Governorship (Governor-appointed from within the People's Council)

3rd Adm. Lv. - Territorial: The People's Council (sub-branch of the People's House)

Highest Level - Prefectural: Governor

2nd Adm. Lv. - Prefectural: The People's Council

Highest Level - Sub-Prefectural: The People's Council

2nd Adm. Lv. - Sub-Prefectural: The People's Committee

(The Governmental Machinery remains the same from Sub-Prefectural Level down.

Elections from Prefectural Level down become much harder for higher officials to influence.

Real political powers for women are only up to Sub-Prefectural Level.

Aristocracy lower than Territorial Level has their political powers removed, but the value of their political powers slightly increased.)

There is also a rule of balancing in the Tengoku as follows:

  • For popular elections, the final results will sometimes have to be considered by higher-ups before ultimately ratified.

  • On the other hand, in case of hereditary positions, sometimes outsiders' votes are required to choose the best candidate within the family to inherit the position. In case of not having a consanguineous successor, a democratic election might as well take place; and previous position-holder's family would remain Local Aristocrats.



The Sovereignty is the term to call the way the Tengoku controls its territorial holdings. The entirety of the Tengoku would be the "Nation"; while the highly-regarded Territories are generally called "Homeland". Recent territorial holdings, or those with the feeling similar to colonies/protectorates are called "the Territories". Meanwhile, there are semi-independent states within the Tengoku that had not yet been transformed into Territories, they are called "Member States", being politically independent compared to the Territories, to the point of having its own Political Machinery, one different from that of the Territories.

Then, there's the "Intermediate States". The simplest explanation of these are "Member States with even more independence". Their independence is enough to grant them the liberty of controlling their own military at their own risks, acting as a separate nation with a separate military, their political leaders having the free will of doing anything he wanted; but only to a point where their territories are drawn as the Tengoku's territorial holdings. Moreover, the bondage also means that whenever the Tengoku requires, their military WILL HAVE TO act as ordered by the Tengoku. However, whether the orders given to Intermediate States' military forces are by the Tengoku or not, the information on who gave them the orders is always classified or destroyed.

    - Unification Project: Notable NSverse Destinations of the Mugen Tengoku/Imperium Omnitatum Sacrum (All Tech)

    ((OOC: This is me tampering with both Japanese Mythology and H. P. Lovecraft to give my Manga Project the best taste possible - a re-imagining of some of the most powerful (and particularly awesome) Japanese gods (not necessarily the ones of creation) fused together, among other things. Contributions of ideas and other source materials from both Japanese Mythology and the Cthulhu Mythos will be deeply appreciated.

    Keep in mind, however, that the "Izanagi" mentioned by the dispatch is, in no way, the ordinary Izanagi you (might not) know in Mythology. And thus, "he" can be anything that you can have an idea of - be that an ordinary every-dude, a vague council made of the creepiest people, a legion of the undead, the worst kind of recurring nightmare, some other gods of the aforementioned two works, or that friendly shopkeeper nearest to your house. Either way, what I'd like to say is: squeak.

    No, really.))

    Also known as: Amenominakanushi (to some sources), Amatsu-Mikaboshi (to some other sources).

    The entity, titled by the Japanese as "Izanagi", is a complex being that has many names and comes in many forms. Rumored by some to have no true form and a real name that could drive many insane; the being is worshiped as a God by the Cult of Izanagi.

    When appearing before mortals, Izanagi materializes/personifies in many different forms, known as "Masks". The following lists the known forms of Izanagi:

    Manifestations

    Region/Dimension

    Description

    Notes

    Phantom of the Operation

    Anywhere, especially around Earth

    Appears as a man 185 cm (approx. 6'1") tall, with either a long blond ponytail wrapped neatly by blue bands or blond hair reaching the nape of his neck; an eye-patch decorated with a stylized golden phoenix covering his left eye; a sharp right eye with deep, icy blue iris.

    The most active of Izanagi's Masks, and arguably also one of the strongest.

    The Blood Hunter

    Anywhere, especially around Earth

    Appears as a young man 175 cm (approx. 5'8") tall. According to some records, the form either appears in a white robe and bright clothing, covering his eyes with a hood; or in a form with black hair, where horn-like objects could be seen over his head.

    Once a young man who was disillusioned by humanity, the Individual of this Mask became the first to successfully sell and bind his soul to, thus merging it with, the consciousness of Izanagi.

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a man 185 cm (approx. 6'1") tall, with either a long blond ponytail wrapped neatly by blue bands or blond hair reaching the nape of his neck; an eye-patch decorated with a stylized golden phoenix covering his left eye; a sharp right eye with deep, icy blue iris; along with a black uniform, usually a long-coat/trench-coat, but at other times also other types of clothing.

    'Phantom of the Operation' is Izanagi's favored Mask to walk among the mortals of the Middle Realms. In this Mask, he usually takes on the surname Sakahara - but other exceptions also exist. The Mask is exceptionally talented in all forms of combat (be it hand-to-hand, swordsmanship, marksmanship, crafty magic-wielding, etc.) and tactical/strategic calculations, and keeps stoicism as the default mode. He also is the driving political force behind the Holy Japonian Empire/Mugen Tengoku, and the head of the economic giant, Sakahara Zaibatsu.


    The logo of Sakahara Zaibatsu
    The Mask, with the name Sakahara Shinji, is revealed to have been in use by Izanagi for a long period of time - at least dating to the times before dinosaurs roam the Earth. It is not known how much knowledge the Mask contains, but it has also been revealed that this form worked with many important characters in history - or, in fact, could have been any of them.

    'Phantom of the Operation' can let his hair down and turning it into silver-white long hair going down the length of most of his body; while his eye can turn red. It is not recorded about what is being hidden under the eye-patch.

    Another form of the Mask is that of a robotic humanoid with a cape/coat/cape-coat seemingly made of black air; wearing a helmet colored sharp black, with a glowing red visor. The voice of the form is distorted; and continued long-term exposure to said voice could cause brain damage.

    Other Masks stemming from this one include 'Greatest Influence'.

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a young man 175 cm (approx. 5'8") tall. According to some records, the form either appears in a white robe and bright clothing, covering his eyes with a hood; or in a form with black hair, where horn-like objects could be seen over his head.

    'The Blood Hunter' is, compared to the being's lifetime, a recently acquired mask. "His" history was of a boy who grew to become a fierce mercenary that worked for himself (?!), whose soul and DNA slowly merged with Izanagi in the process. Ultimately, as the young man he was, he carried out the ritual to "sell" his soul to Izanagi through the Book of Insanity, completing the cycle of the contract he made with the being, and ultimately became a part of Izanagi while also maintaining his individuality.

    The Mask's name varies from dimension to dimension, but a recorded name is Minamoto Hideki. Combat by the Mask is done through either "Overkill" - a powerful ability which allows its user to instantaneously kill/destroy everyone/everything on sight; or with two handheld guns: "Alucard" and "Dracula". The Mask tends to avoid light - but not because of any reason except "not liking it".

    Adopted Nicknames: Der Blutjäger, The Tennou.
    Adopted Human Names: Minamoto Hideki (original name).

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a young woman 165 cm (approx. 5'5") tall. This is one of Izanagi's most stable Masks, appearing as a constant: a beautiful maiden - probably in her teens - wearing a black-and-purple Gothic dress along with a frilly hat over her long, silver-white hair; with long, curved, bright eyelashes.

    'Violet' is a mysterious Mask donned by Izanagi. The Mask carries with her either a doll or an umbrella most of the time. Her abilities are ambiguous; which seem to include the summoning of large flocks of magenta-colored butterflies and summoning a teacup out of thin air. But one thing is for certain: she is a form of Izanagi, and thus, is not to be taken lightly in combat.

    Sometimes seen accompanied by a black blob monster.

    Adopted Human Names: Murasaki Ran, Lilith Weil.

    "Driving the sane insane, and driving the insane psychotic. That is the Book of Insanity."
    - ???

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a thick, old, mystical Book said to be beyond the comprehension of man, or any creatures whatsoever.

    The Book's cover is rumored to have a color so mind-wrecking that nobody managed to keep their calm just seeing it. Even the name of the Book, said to be written in gold, is inscribed on the cover in an alphabet that looks three-dimensional in nature (for those who can keep their sanity long enough to see the words) - the alphabet of a language (vaguely named The-Language-That-Cannot-Be-Named) that, when read, would cause the ones listening to it to lose their minds completely.

    Within the book are actually blank pages - or that is truly what human eyes can only see. There are secrets that, if found, will allow the "first" page of the book to be read - that is, if the reader can ever find the "first" page. The pages are arranged in such a way that continuing contents are disorganized and on pages that aren't supposed to succeed each other (e.g. page 5 and page 206). The text within the book, when rendered visible, is also written in the same language as the one on the cover.

    Few has managed to actually get their hands on the book, let alone read it. But those who did are said to have summoned another avatar of Izanagi, while their own souls merge with that of the being; ultimately leading to them becoming a part of Izanagi (but still retaining their individuality - somehow).


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a dainty woman 170 cm (approx. 5'7") tall. The form is seemingly created as an affectionate parody by the entity in tribute to the "Bloated Woman" form of Nyarlathotep in the Cthulhu Mythos. This form wears a red cheongsam most of the time, wielding one or two Black Fans.

    Along with the avatar 'Violet', 'She Who Wields The Black Fans' is a form not known by many people. Her powers are unknown, but a possibility is upon dropping the fan(s), she will (usually) transform into a white-haired, red-eyed, grey-skinned "human" with monstrous tentacles and bloated faces resembling insectivorous plants for her "bottom" part.

    As with all forms of Izanagi, She Who Wields The Black Fans is not to be taken lightly.

    Adopted Nicknames: Heishan-niu.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a mystical vampire nobleman 180 cm (approx. 5'10") tall, who wears a tuxedo and sports a hat, wielding a cane for no specific reasons whatsoever. He also has a monocle, on or off at random occasions.

    'Chrono Vampire' has the ability to ignore and defy the established fabric of space-time continuum altogether, giving him prophetic powers as well as the ability to manipulate time at his leisure. However, he also keeps the philosophy to not give away the information about the future, unless his doing so would maintain the order of events. Other than time-related powers, he has a fine grasp of fighting skills - which he tend to avoid showing. He can also summon massive flocks of bats and teleport.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a Middle Eastern man 188 cm (approx. 6'2") tall. He usually wears blue desert garments. Other variations include blue military uniforms, or otherwise blue civilian clothing.

    The 'Desert Walker' keeps a secretive identity as the Blue Baron of the Barony of Riadum - a political division within the Neo-Draconian Confederacy. He acts as the watcher to the situation in the worlds surrounding the Confederacy, and, in a way, is Izanagi's representative identity within the local dimension.

    The title "Blue Baron" was given to Eduardus Amadeus Wolfgang von Draconius upon his successful elimination of entire armies through his driving and personal command of a massive mobile fortress, named "The Thing in Blue". He is also master of the Saif Conglomerate - the economic giant of the Confederacy.

    The Mask is known to be able to summon large, blue-colored scorpions. He himself is rumored to be able to take on the form of a large half-human, half-scorpion; though whether that is true or not, he has yet to actually use said transformation.

    Adopted Human Names: Eduardus Amadeus Wolfgang von Draconius.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as the element Oxygen.

    The knowledge about this element by scientists consists of it being the air that allows humans to survive and flourish; and an element that sustains fire. What they didn't know is Oxygen has a will of its own.

    The Mask has a voice, heard by humans as the sound of wind blowing, creating what seems like the sound of "whoo".


    Back to top...

    With these Masks, Izanagi manifests as the planets and cosmic objects known to humans by the names of Earth/Terra, Moon/Luna, Sun/Sol and Mars.

    Because the first three Masks are related; meteorological, geographical and atmospheric activities result from the interaction of these three Masks. The fourth Mask - Red Planet, better known to humans by the name "Mars", is a separate entity with less connections to the first three, but ultimately still has a role to play when humans consider the possibilities of colonizing its surface.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as an astronomical, hideous humanoid rotting corpse with larvae and Raijin surrounding it. The corpse has a head with no clear face, and ten hands.

    'Deadman Deity' is a perversion of the Mask 'Greatest Influence'. Upon being chained by the other Greater Influences, Izanagi was cursed to stay in this form for a period of time. The 'Deadman Deity', hence, became a deity of death, the dead in general and vengeance. It commands entire armies of undead creatures, in order to devour those who dares wrong reality itself.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as what seems like a man wearing a robe, covering most of his physical features except the lower half of his face. Another variation replaces this human appearance with a skull, while the robe itself appears to be in drags. Nevertheless, 'Shinigami' always carries a scythe.

    'Shinigami' is the mask worshiped by many as the God of Death himself. Known to some as the "Grim Reaper", he has taken into his hands the lives of many of those who were about to die and welcome them to the afterlife in one of the Realms. Alternatively, an unspeakable curse will be applied upon the dead, and they shall never have any way of returning once again.

    The Mask also safeguards the Lower Realms in his little free time.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a riddle/problem that seems like no other, whether the subject in question by the same riddle is Maths, Literature or any subject known to man at all, one cannot comprehend.

    The riddle works in a fashion akin to the Book of Insanity: written in The-Language-That-Cannot-Be-Named, long-term exposure to the riddle or trials to solving the problem could cause insanity. Those who manage to solve it are approached by a vision of the Mask 'Void Face', and asked if they wanted knowledge of everything.

    If the answer is "Yes", the knowledge granted could cause the one who solved the riddle to either become psychotic or transcend to a different state. If the answer is "No", the riddle-solver's Soul will be merged with the conscience of Izanagi.


    Back to top...

    With these Masks, Izanagi manifests as either a large face or a large hand seemingly made of tar. However, when one looks close, the components might not be solid, liquid, air, plasma or even ethereal. Prolonged observation of these Masks might cause mental instability.

    These Masks can merge to form a 1.6 km (1 mile) tall pitch-black-"skinned" giant. Alternatively, they can also form a pitch-black-"skinned" man in a business suit and coat of America's 1960 Era; without a face.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a man with shaggy long black hair reaching the middle of his back, as well as an equally long and large black beard.

    This Mask is most likely Izanagi's affectionate parody of his own depiction within religion, particularly Shintoism. The imagery created by 'Black Beard' varies, from wearing a long white gown to being armed with a long, red spear and wearing traditional East Asian attires.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a large, outlandish monstrosity with long tentacles.

    This Mask is used by Izanagi mostly as a "challenge" for warriors. Not much is known about it.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a petite girl with purple hair tied into double buns and twin-tails, wielding a large syringe which can be used as either a healing kit or a machine gun.

    'Nurse Strangereal' is a cheerful Mask, sometimes seen accompanying either 'Phantom of the Operation' or 'Jolly Fat Man'. Other than having healing abilities, not much is known about her.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a bald, fat man who can turn himself into a large toad with tentacles.

    In contrast with his somewhat hideous appearance, however, the jolly fat man is actually a friendly giant who only so much as hurt other people when they hurt someone else. As with all of Izanagi's Masks, however, the Jolly Fat Man is still to be watched out for.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as an ethnically ambiguous tan-skinned man with white hair and short mustache, mostly seen wearing a black suit and shades.

    'The Godfather' is a shadowy figure who manipulates several mafia organizations within his "home" dimension. However, he seems to be a man who complies greatly to the "Mafia Code of Honorable Conduct"; going so far as to bring some of the money he obtained to those living in poverty.

    Rumored to be able to transform into a different, more monstrous form.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a 1000-feet-tall (approx. 305 meters) gold statue of Zeus - the highest god of Greek mythology.

    'Monument to Madness' is, when compared to either the 'Book of Insanity' or 'Formula of the Dead', relatively tame - with the exception of its size. Its voice, however, may range from normal to ear-wrecking and thunder-like. Despite not causing any mental damage in normal circumstances, one might risk becoming insane if he looks at the statue's eyes when it is angry.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a gigantic black-colored three-headed hell-hound.

    'Shadow Cerberus' is, without a doubt, the Cerberus of mythology. It dwells within the caverns of the Lower Realms, safeguarding the dark secrets and the souls resting deep within these abodes. As a hell-hound, its saliva can cause hell-fire that cannot be suppressed by ordinary measures of firefighting.


    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a white-haired, red-eyed, slightly-tan-skinned young man/woman in white-and-red Far Eastern attire.

    Classified as a class of "nine-tailed creatures", the appropriately-named 'Ninetails' has the ability to turn into the form of a gigantic white lupine/vulpine creature with a red crescent symbol on its forehead. In any form, Ninetails master the powers of fire and ice, and wield them to great effect. Additional abilities of the Mask include summoning rains of flower petals and teleporting.


    Back to top...
    Back to top...

    With this Mask, Izanagi manifests as a white-short-haired, blue-eyed, pale-skinned young man that looked not entirely unlike a variation of 'Phantom of the Operation'.

    - (OUTDATED BUT RECYCLABLE) Manifestations of Izanagi

    If you are...
    - You're familiar with just about anything related to Anime popular culture, enough to go into details; and the trendiest JHK drama series at any given time.
    - You know how baseball is played. At school, you were taught about all ball-related sports and martial arts.
    - You get some days off from Christmas to New Year, some days off during either Setsubun or Lunar New Year, a few during each of the Golden Weeks, and a few during Bon Festival. Not that you hate working.
    - Natural disasters? What are those?
    - You're not fundamentally religious, since you live in rather secular societies. Whatever religion you belong to, you don't actively practice it. You are likely to have your coming-of-age ceremonies in a Shinto shrine, get married in a Christian church, and have funerals in a Buddhist pagoda.
    - Your life is comfortable thanks to Lifewave technology. Your place is heated when cold, and air-conditioned when hot - seasonal changes are not the only factor for that. Your house has its own bathroom (without the toilet) and restroom (only with the toilet), separated from each other. Sinks are everywhere.
    - You do your laundry however you like, but usually not by hand. You don't have a dirt floor.
    - You either eat at a table sitting on chairs, or at a low table sitting on mattresses laid on the floor mats.
    - Everyone knows how to use kitchen utensils, from forks to chopsticks.
    - You frown upon meat-eating: most of the weekly "meat" you consume are intentionally-modified vegetables designed to resemble real meat. Your food likely consists of mostly vegetables and vegan foods.

    What works, eh...?
    - Railroads, auto manufacturers, and airlines are usually run by this SS Apeirocorp. They're everywhere, naturally - everything from your food to your clothes have them written all over!
    - The train system is excellent - you use them to get to almost anywhere.
    - You contact others with your Lifewave screens.
    - You usually only care about politics at the galactic level at most. You can get further, but you'll start cracking our own brain by then.
    - You don't think in terms of race. They're humans, or candidates to become humans.
    - The Imperial culture is diverse, and you're proud of it.
    - You usually can speak at least two languages. You can start gaining a position in planetary politics with six languages. Not that you have to need them to succeed.
    - You believe in a strong court system, which is usually fast and effective.
    - You couldn't care less about the 75% tax rates; because everything's so cheap. Logically, you would wonder why the price is always so cheap, but then you'd shrug and take that fact for granted.
    - You don't die from diseases unless they're very new and resilient.
    - You think a lot of problems could be solved if only people would work to put aside (and/or even abandon) their prejudices, work hard together, and have respect for everyone including themselves.

    Can't read own T-shirt, bleh!
    - You would respect someone speaking a language you do not know, at which time you will have to rely on the translator of your Lifewave screen.
    - Learning other languages is a good thing.
    - If you're female, learning flower-arranging and tea ceremony is also a good thing.
    - Education is free, unless you attend private schools - where the fees you pay are negligible if they exist at all.
    - There are plenty of good colleges and universities, so don't rush yourself too much.

    Big Brother Protects
    - Mustard comes as a paste in plastic tubes or in powdered form in cans, as does wasabi. Shaving cream comes in cans. Milk comes in cartons or bottles.
    - It's era year/month/date, for example: BC 660/02/11 (and you know what happened on that date).
    - You are taught that the Emperor of the Imperium is God. You don't know his name, and you don't see this guy anywhere, but from what you've heard, you do have a certain level of respect for him - though not so much. And there's only one Emperor since the founding of the Imperium.
    - The decimal point is a dot (in most places).
    - The Imperium primarily follows two number naming schemes, giving new names every three digits as per the European scheme or every four digits as per the Eastasian scheme.
    - Marriages aren't really that important; when you happen to wrong your partner rather badly, a government official will make sure to drag you away to question you without the need of a marriage license. They otherwise won't interfere in any way though.
    - You couldn't care less about sexualities of other people, and neither does your government; as long as they aren't rapists, they're free to go about their business.
    - You call people by their family name, except for your own superiors and important people. The only people you can call by their first names are little children, your siblings, cousins, friends from early childhood, and people you met in bars. You tend to use honorifics after names, except certain long-time friends and your younger siblings.
    - If you're a woman and you go topless to the beach, you have two options: find something online, and fast; or make sure you are traveling with another person, and find a cave.
    - A hotel room has private baths. Traditional inns have cavernous public baths - whether they have private ones are optional.
    - Cultural imperialism is nonsense, and you know it.
    - If you're someone well-versed in politics, you expect corrupt politicians to be silently and swiftly purged.
    - If a politican has been cheating on his wife, you might start to question his IQ.
    - A company will usually not fire their own employees. Usually.

    There are no such things as foreign nations
    - You're usually taught about the most recent four millennia of the planet you're on.
    - You were taught of the catastrophes brought about by the major wars that affected the Imperium; and you know best to avoid conflict when not necessary.
    - Foreign nations? What are those? ... in other words, they either joined the Imperium or haven't joined the Imperium.
    - You admire the military forces to a certain degree; especially Knightly Orders.

    Amazon: either part of the far past or a jungle
    - Anyone can appear on the most popular talk shows.
    - Gossip is considered something to drive away boredom.
    - Manga and other Anime-related goodies are everywhere, and everyone watches them. None lets them dominate their lives completely though - they know better.
    - You're used to a wide variety of choices for everything you buy.
    - You use the metric system. You occasionally use feet and inches to talk about height, but you rarely care otherwise.
    - You're a farmer-of-love. Your house may usually be self-sufficient in terms of food.
    - You drive on whichever side of the road that local law tells you to. You stop at red lights even if nobody's around. If you're a pedestrian and cars are stopped at a red light, you will fearlessly cross the street in front of them.
    - You consider cars to take up a bit too much space.
    - The police are armed. What they are armed with is another story.
    - If a woman is plumper than the average, it doesn't improve her looks. Being tall doesn't help either, since men don't like women to be taller than themselves. A woman with a curvaceous body will attract men's eyes, of course, but it isn't too essential.
    - Men do not like being fat or bald - or both. Having some muscles is a good-enough point - having them like a bodybuilder is not.
    - The biggest meal of the day is in the evening.
    - There are parts of the city you might want to avoid if not accompanied by certain authorities or a knowledgeable local.

    - So you think you are an Imperial citizen... (WIP)

    <Feel free to ask me which aspect do you want to know>

    - Regardless of form, always ruled by the same Council. The constant of that council always happens to be named by the initials "S.S." Contrary to popular belief, we're not ruled (at least directly) by an explicit "God-Emperor".
    - Spans a mind-screwing large area - to say the least. The term "Apeiroverse" was coined to refer to parts of it, even.
    - If your political entity doesn't tamper with dimensions (and sometimes even then), chances are an alternate-universe version of it (or several thousands of such a thing) would end up being Imperial territories.
    - Has Utopian elements, but most definitely not a Utopia - given its premise and political mechanism. Possibly a Marysuetopia, but author is trying to avoid that.
    - Is either a reactionary totalitarian fascist slave-based oligarchical empire or a visionary libertarian liberal freedom-based meritocratic confederacy, take your pick.
    - Governmental system much closer to Feudal Japan than it is to Imperial or Modern Japan, but without a clear/physical Emperor.
    - The leader is, theoretically, "Big Brother" - legendary founder of the Imperial Demesne; he's either a revered god, if you're a believer in him; a great saint, should your god be somebody other than him; or a historical hero, if you aren't religious at all.
    - Kept glued together by a privy council. You don't want to know more about them.
    - Lingua Francas are, nominally, English, Latin and Japanese.
    - Technologically advanced in many fields. Has great knowledge of magic.
    - Part of developments in many fields revolves around Lifewave. Enough said.
    - Multi-species. Has a broad definition of "Humanity". Homo Sapiens considered a predecessor to/by some of the human sub-races within the current "Human Race" - Allkind, Homo Sacer.
    - The population varies in appearances, shapes and sizes, dimensions (yes, there are 2D people), etc. You can realize the numerical balance between two overarching themes, however: Cuteness and Manliness. You'll see plenty of meowing kitten-girls as you'd see chainsaw-wielding grandpas.
    - The genders have the same rights. A great many scholars have argued that they have different responsibilities, however. Doesn't prevent lots of women from joining military posts and attaining respectable positions.
    - Daily life varies, depending on location. Given the Imperial Demesne's size, it ought to happen. However, prices are always reasonable, red tape is not to be expected, and the trains run on time.
    - Eating daily all-vegetable meals is the norm. Due to genetic conditioning, there is now no longer a need for "lower body waste ejection".
    - Tolerates Incest, Homosexuality and BDSM.
    - Architecture is a mix of modern and futuristic with what have been observed in the past in Europe (especially Gothic architecture) and East Asia. Same thing can be said about everyday attire.
    - Religiously syncretic. "State church" - not compulsory - is a strange mix of 95% Shinto and 5% the Roman Catholic Church, "Big Brother" is God.
    - The (Holy Office of the) Inquisition is the intelligence agency and, in a way, the secret police.
    - The Inquisition always knows what you're doing. It won't intervene, until you start to follow HERESY that is.
    - Knightly Orders fight Frontier Wars and deter Heretics.
    - Run by "the power of imagination". So, lots of things happen.
    - Economically, seemingly monopolized by SS Omnicorp. Money is a complicated, case-by-case-basis matter.
    - Culturally quasi-liberal, but tends to discourage abortion and emphasizes on female virginity. Anime-related culture is still a thing, but it's not so much as to dwarf the other parts of pop culture.
    - Activities can get pretty shady at times. Has Nazi tendencies and internment camps for a "select few".
    - Has a race tailored to be a bad example for everyone, the inherently evil Homo Uguricus - the Ugurians. They live segregated and left to their own devices on Ghetto Planets, or in Ghetto Systems and/or Ghetto Galaxies.
    - Likes to grant freedoms to a reasonable extent. However, frowns upon any attempt to abuse them. This leads to...
    - Governmental intolerance towards HERESY. SUFFER NOT THE HERETIC TO LIVE.
    - The unwritten rule in the military is to treat everyone with mercy and rationality. This rule does not always extend to Heretics, thus...
    - Do not voice the Geneva Conventions to Imperial representatives. Those are archaic.
    - Talking about concepts such as "nations", "countries", "independence", etc, is considered taboo. Substitutes include "polities", "entities", etc.
    - Owning light weapons are legal after proper registration and authorization.
    - Our mechs are H.E.R.C. - Heavily-Equipped Reinforced Cavalry. We have other toys too, but we feel like reminding you of this more interesting part.

    - Things I've thought about the Imperial Demesne, but has not written down

    I have a very high tendency towards character RPs; and since I'm neither a master strategist nor tech-savvy, I have to mostly rely on character interaction to build up my posts. Here, you can view a number of canons and RPs I am/was in, and see for yourself whether I'm the right RPer for what you have. I do both N&I RP and P2TM, but mostly the former. Especially the former.

    This compilation began in 2016; so the previous 5 years are not short of many other canons I had been in (some of which are primordial versions of these listed below). However, most of them are now defunct.

    Try to notice a pattern of all these RPs.

    N&I
    Alt Frencoverse (PMT, FT, StrangeT)
    Timeframe: No earlier than the 22nd century.

    1. Flight of the Polunochnaya (Ongoing)
    Summary: Trotskaya going after the Sidh Judicator Alain, who kidnapped her babies. Cue Orks, Necrons, moon-dwellers and Nyarlathotep.

    Cross-Frencoverse [True for both versions of the Frencoverse] (Tech Depending on RP)
    Timeframe: Known and unknown history.

    1. Live for a Century (Ongoing)
    Summary: Events of the RP transpire between 1907 and 1916. Stalin's youngest/second eldest child (depending on interpretation) was basically Superwoman, and Rasputin was an alien spy.

    Greater Germanic Reich Canon (PMT+FanT)
    Timeframe: *shrug*

    Imperiumverse (PMT+FanT)
    Timeframe: 21st century

    Iseria (PMT+FanT)
    Timeframe: Starting 2032

    1. Atomic Blood (Ongoing)
    Summary: Your dreams die when the nukes are fired.

    MCN Frencoverse (PMT, FT)
    Timeframe: No earlier than the 22nd century.

    1. Red Planet (Ongoing)
    Summary: Main story arc takes place on Mars. Probably in the process of having the side story separated into a completely different RP.
    2. Tactus Golgothae (Ongoing)
    Summary: Perhaps to serve as the prelude to a "first (formal) contact"-ish RP between the Autem Galacticus Nexum and Imperium Omnitatum Sacrum.

    Mefverse (StrangeT)
    Timeframe: what is that

    1. Thus Fought The Crusaders (Ongoing)
    Summary: Everything's not alright for Tama.

    RVN Canon (PT, MT)
    Timeframe: The 20th and 21st centuries.

    1. Red and Yellow (Ongoing)
    Summary: Takes place in between 1940 and the early 1980s, the RP will focus on a tumultuous period of Vietnamese history marred by warfare, the reunification of Vietnam and the immediate aftermath of an alternate-history Vietnam War.

    UCE-Tengoku Interaction Canon (FT)
    Timeframe: The 27th century (in UCE calendar).

    1. To Be Doomed Once More (Ongoing)
    Summary: A series of mistakes and either accidental or intentional miscommunications by certain figures on both sides lead to conflict between the United Colonies of Earth and the Mugen Tengoku/Holy Imperium - in what was their supposed first formal interaction.

    "Valkyries' Origin" Canon (PMT, StrangeT)
    Timeframe: The 21st century.

    1. War in the PC Empire (Concluded)
    Summary: The very first RP that I participated in of a loose "canon". The RP at large is the fall of the PC Empire, that would allow the reestablishment of the IBM-Unix Federation. On a narrower scale, however, this RP also tells the story of how Shinji Sakahara went on a mission to "hunt" Valkyries - enhanced female super-soldiers. Average amount of crossover with Neptunia.
    2. Disaster Strikes Novaya (Ongoing)
    Summary: Takes place after the above, this RP can be explained as a crossover with the Date A Live series.

    Wilauhf Germany Canon (PMT)
    Timeframe: The 21st century.

    1. Go Home? There Is No Home. (Ongoing)
    Summary: The rebellion in the making of a resurgent People's Army of Japan; empowered by assistance from the United World Federation to repel the Imperial German colonialists. However, there is more to the PAJ and its members than meets the eye...
