- Main article: Leaders (Civ2)
The default male leader of the Japanese is Tokugawa. Tokugawa Ieyasu (1543–1616) established the Tokugawa Shogunate by overthrowing Toyotomi Hideyoshi's infant son. He continued Hideyoshi's antagonistic policies towards foreigners and foreign religions, ultimately banning Japanese Christianity outright and beginning Japan's isolation.
The default female leader is Amaterasu ("Shining in Heaven"), the Japanese solar goddess traditionally credited as the great-great-great-grandmother of the warlord Jimmu, who established himself as a ruler on Honshu c. 660 BC.
Japanese leaders use governments' default titles except under monarchy and democracy. A Japanese king or queen is known as a "shogun". A Japanese president, like English and Greek counterparts, is known as a "prime minister".
The Japanese are aggressive, perfectionist, and militaristic.
The default Japanese city list is:
- Kyoto (default capital)
