Weeks prior to the war, the government of Arizona wanted to establish a trade deal with the Japanese Empire. The Japanese government however refused to contact Emperor Rick whether or not they were interested in a trade deal. Emperor Rick had attempted again and again but was never recognized by Rujikin.
Taking this as a insult the ministry of information gathered intelligence on the Japanese Empire and discovered that Rujikin's Regime was inactive and not in immediate control of his Empire.
Emperor Rick took his time in preparing a plan to annex Japan. The Japanese Empire was under a treaty with the North Atlantic Defense Coalition. Arizona could not annex Japan without a proper Casus belli. The Empire had to prove that the Rujikin Regime was non existent and that the annexation would be for humanitarian reasons.
10 days before the war began, the 8492nd Squadron dropped leaflets in Japan informing the general public of Arizona's intention of declaring war, and urging the government to contact Emperor Rick immediately.
The War Edit
The Empire of Arizona had formally declared war on the Japanese Empire. Arizona's 5th Fleet moved into position off of the coast of Japan however did not launch any attack. Marsturm of Latigo(NADC) representative warned Rick of intervention for attacking one of its members. Emperor Rick informed Marsturm of Rujikins inactivity and handed over documents of Japanese citizens who were basically on their own without a government.
Marsturm went over the documents and it checked out with his own ministry of information. Marsturm blessed the humanitarian aid after a short conversation. Now that NADC was out of the region the only thing left was the Japanese Military which was still operating.

Rujikin back from his 19th day of inactivity sent Emperor Rick a telegram requesting a cease fire. RPA troops had stopped immediately, to avoid any unnecessary allied incidents the RPA began to pull out.
Rujikin demanded that reparations be paid for the damages done to his country. Emperor Rick agreed that Arizona would pay, though no packages have been sent thus far. It has been speculated that Rujikin slipped back into inactivity once again. Neither side has made any attempt to demand or attempt to pay reparations.
