Nishiyama is a country located in Asia off the coast of Northern Japan. Its population is exclusively made up of Asian individuals, particularly people of Japanese, Chinese or Korean origin.

History

Confederation (1794)

Nishiyama was discovered 10 years before confederation by Japanese explorer Honzo Kitamura. Initially, he mistook it as an already existing, albeit unknown part of Northern Japan. 

Eventually, it was officially made a country on November 16 of 1794, and more and more people moved to the tiny island, and started to partake in agricultural activities, such as rice farming. Upper-class individuals would not work in the fields, but rather opt to stay inside. This caused much negative opinions among the lower-class individuals. Unfortunately, the people running the country ruled in favor of the upper-class.

Independence Day (1823)

On December 22, 1823, Nishiyama gained independence from the Kuwahara Republic. They fought for two days.

Modern Nishiyama (present day)

Nishiyama is not as agricultural as it once was, as a vast majority of its citizens have found more, and better ways to make money. The Asian country now has a population of 27,555,720 as of March 2018.
