The Mishima Corporation is an umbrella group that controls everything deemed legal in Japan. From television and radio, to defence and the military, they are everything. They are Japan.
At the beginning of the Second Korean War in 2012, Japan was ill-prepared to combat the aggressiveness of North Korea. At this time, the Mishima Corporation had amassed a private army to guard it vast complexes in Japan and abroad. By the middle of the war, Japan was loosing the war badly, and due to Article 9 of the Japanese Consitution, the Japanese government forbade itself from the aggressive policies and military equipment & expenditure needed to defeat the greater Korean force.
It was at this point that the Mishima Corporation stepped in, sending thousands of its personal force to the Korean peninsula in huge landings. This attack was carried out by what became the Japanese Special Naval Landing Force, Japan's first marine force since the Second World War. A quick and bloody campaign followed, in which Mishima forces pushed North to the old Korean border. At the same time, the People's Republic of China had pushed South, transforming North Korea into a PRC puppet state. After a short interval of fighting at the old border, the Mishima Corporation signed deals with the Chinese, ending the majority of the fighting.
In the ensuing months, public opinion of the Mishima Corporation soared, while faith in both the Japanese Democratic Party and the Liberal Democrat Party of Japan plunged to an all time low. The Mishima Corporation saw its chance, and led a peaceful, though forceful, coup of the government. In the following years, the Mishima Corporations power over the country grew, and new arms deals with China increased the strength of the Mishima Armed Forces. At this point, diplomatic ties with the United States were severed, and a full military alliance with the Chinese came the following year.
