On a Knife's Edge, a Post Weltkrieg 2 Kaiserreich Japan Game

I can't help to think that it'd be best to board a battleship rather than an aircraft carrier, if the good general suggests the latter in such an explicit manner. One never knows... ;-)

Feck it is civil war then
Well, I can say this one thing without spoiling.

The clock is almost at midnight for Japanese Democracy, but one good action can reverse the hand fully. Act well and act swiftly.
 
[X] Stand Our Ground

1. We shall advise the Emperor and Imperial Household, along with any members of the government to leave quickly for an alternate location. We shall however stay with a small group of volunteers.

2. If we still have access to radio and television connections we shall broadcast and contact all available media, military and government resources on what we have learned from General Hitoshi Imamura including names of conspirators.

3. We shall call on the military, government and people of Japan to peacefully resist these orders with a empire wide strike to last until they surrender and to only to return fire if fired upon. We shall state that the Emperor and legitimate government is safe and that those leading this coup are violating their oaths to the Emperor.

4. We shall call upon any military units or personnel involved in this coup to surrender to the proper authorities.

5. We shall continue to broadcast/call until the coup leaders arrive.

I don't think it would be wise to abandon the capital to a bunch of insurectionists, much less call for peaceful anything.

That way lies slaughter.

[x] Put them down with extreme prejudice.

[x] Relocate the government to the nearest loyalist Warship Group.

[x] Publically transmit orders with all means available declaring the insurectionists as traitors to be arrested if possible, kill on sight if not.

[x] Order the Chiefs of staff to draft plans and orders to put down the coup as fast as possible.

[x] Arrest and secure the families of the masterminds behind the coup.

The time for subtelty and mercy is long past.

Not the complete picture. But it shows how many people are in this plot.
1) Nobusuke Kishi
2) Hisaichi Terauchi
3) Hideki Tojo
4) Adachi Kenzo
5) Seigo Nakano
6) Akira Kazami
7) Hiroshi Oshima
8) Nobuyuki Abe
9) Kuniaki Koiso

You can google them IRL and see that they ain't exactly the nicest people Japan has to offer. In this Post Weltkrieg timeline, it appears that seeing Japan be 'Feminized' in such a rapid and abrupt fashion is a bit too much for them.

I am not abandoning the capital, just giving time for the Emperor, the Imperial Household and government to relocated so they cannot be forced to sign anything. I was also trying to prevent the coup plotters from using the unrest to crackdown on people they do not like.

The next couple months would prove that Japanese Democracy is significantly stronger than realized. Your strong leadership and coordination has proven it's worth. As remaining Coup Leaders that didn't escape or committed Seppuku were rounded up and charged with sedition and potentially treason to the state.

PSIA agents alongside local police forces went on full ham against the remaining members of the Kempeitai. The ones that did cooperate were given comparatively light sentences by the courts, the ones found not guilty would be monitored for years on end, and the ones that resisted? Well, either forcefully taken into custody or died on the ensuing firefight. A fair bit of former Kempeitai officers committed Seppuku once they know the jig is up.

Of the coup leaders, Nobusuke Kishi proved to be the most cantankerous. During the live hearing of the court proceedings. He publicly declared that Japan has fallen to 'The Gays, the Uncivilized people of the Tropical Islands, the Monkey-like Chinese, and all remaining Effeminate forces seeking the country's destruction.' He then would proceed on a racist tirade comparing the intelligence of Koreans, Chinese, Insulindians, Filipinos, and Thais to that of children. It is no surprise that the judge handed him the death sentence, his non cooperative nature and leadership in the coup attempt was more than enough to land him in the wall of a firing squad.

Predictably, there was a small recession in Japan during Q1 1961. The coup attempt is a sufficiently strong force that some amount of money fled the country. But analysts are predicting that Q2 1961 will prove much more fruitful. The return of royal family and the Prime Minister's cabinet from the joint Yamato-Izumi battlegroup was met with roaring crowds of every single Japanese person you can think of. From CEO's to the common working man working at Nagoya's steel mills. It seems your actions is also popular among the common Japanese man.

Of course, there are some coup members hiding somewhere, and the PSIA is busy tracking them down. But effectively, you can resume normal government duties as soon as possible.

Congratulations. You've done really well defeating the coup, your rapid and well thought out actions have proven that Japan would remain a Democracy for the forseeable future. Reputation wise, Japan's status as 'The Light of Asia' is preserved in possibly the best way possible. As would be autocrats from all over Asia look at how such a well planned coup can collapse in such a rapid fashion. While the Syndietern could only look with amazement, for a country with such an Imperialistic History to fully embrace Democracy in the most explosive way possible, quite unprecedented for them I would imagine.
