Watashitachi no Domein
Written by a Nationalist [Hitaku Wasi]
To all whom it may concern, the holding of this pamphlet before you all is not an explicit doctrine. Nor is it law, nor moral code, nor directive, nor decree, nor guideline. It is the precept of greater purpose.
From the basis of religion alone, the aim of life is to reach one’s state of peace. Be it Enlightenment, Heaven, or other realms beyond this word, that is the aim of all, including myself.
But to reach beyond religion, the ultimate aim of the human capacity is to fulfill the greatest achievement that the self holds the ability to accomplish within their lifespan. It is to make a name for oneself that will live on in legacy for the generations. That not only the name, but the effects of one’s efforts, may live on in both tradition and action for the posterity of their own, the posterity of their people, and the posterity of their nation.
Here lies the mission of our generation.

As of the current date, 1878, Meiji remains the current holder of the Chrysanthemum Throne.
Thus is the genealogy from Jimmu to Meiji. Thus is the lineage of the Yamato Imperial Dynasty of the Empire of Japan.
The societal rebirth and reconstruction of Japan since the dawn of the reign of the Great Meiji is insurmountable. No Emperor before, with the exception of Jimmu, has left a legacy as great as Meiji’s, and none after shall exceed Meiji’s Legacy.
Economics: Meiji has brought Japan into the light. Opening the nation to trade with Europe, Asia, and the Americas, Meiji has brought with it the wonders of the outside world, yet maintaining that unfair deals that only benefit our neighbors be struck down. With this exposure came a bloodless revolution: Industrialization. Progression, having been shrouded by the Shogunate for nearly 270 years, Meiji has managed to accomplish within a span of a decade what for most countries would take a century. The invitation of Capitalism, formerly only found within the Territory of Diwi, into all of Japanese lands, has allowed for development, innovation, competition, and profit. Trolleys, Locomotives, Liquor production, Railroads, Casinos, and Military development are among the products of the Restoration.
Society: The restructuring of society on the Mainland has granted the gift of success to all Japanese. In restoring the Emperor as the sole and true ruler of Japan, and throwing out the former feudal social hierarchy of the 17th Century, society has flourished in a way that benefits all Japanese, due to the success of the strong yet gentle hand of the Chrysanthemum Throne.
Culture: Through his promotion of Nationalism and Social Conformity, Meiji has managed to bring forth a balance between Traditional Japanese values and New Western values, a middle ground that allows for progression and individualism, whilst maintaining that we do not forget our roots and identity.
Influence: The geopolitical sphere of the Japanese Empire has continued to expand within the last decade. Through the diplomatic successes of the Treaty of Saint Petersburg, Japan has taken control of the Kuril Islands in exchange for giving up Sakhalin, yet still maintaining relative dominance within the Sea of Okhotsk over Russia. By the Japan-Korea Treaty of 1876, we have expressed our dominance over the puny Joseon Empire, our capabilities within the Far East, and the economic capacities for our nation. Via the creation of a National Unified Army, we hold the premise for a greater power, one that, in time to come, be able to rival the Russians.
The above are a glimpse of the achievements made within the first decade of the Restoration, one which is still unfolding before us today.
