Code Geass Fanon Wiki

Code Geass Shinsei is set in an alternate reality where three superpowers, the Empire of Japan, the European Union, and the Organization of American States have divided up control of the world (with the exception of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, the Middle Eastern Federation, the Russian Federation, the Neutral Zone, the Commonwealth of Australia, and New Zealand) and maintain a tentative balance.

Superpowers[]

Empire of Japan[]

The Empire of Japan is an imperial monarchy and the most prominent superpower within the world of Code Geass Shinsei, controlling almost one-third of the world. Its capital city is Tokyo, located in the Imperial Homeland (i.e. Japan, the Kuril Islands, Sakhalin Island, Korea, the Ryukyu Islands, and Taiwan).

The Emperor is the head of state, and supposedly the sovereign ruler of Japan. All direct administration is handled by the Imperial Diet, which in turn, is led by a Prime Minister, who is the head of government. However, this governing system was exploited under the later members of the Diet, who used their authority to make Japan a military superpower. Over the years, the Imperial Family would be manipulated to lend much of its power to the Diet, which would establish absolute control for themselves upon Genbu Kururugi's ascension to the role of Prime Minister in 1997, essentially becoming a dictator in all but name. Japanese society is an aristocracy run according to a caricature of both Japanese Bushido and Social Darwinism, with a hierarchy of competing nobles at the top and the peoples of conquered territories (also known as Areas) (referred to either by their area number or as "Numbers") living in poverty or as unequal Honorary Japanese.

Prior to the conquest of the British Isles, the Japanese Empire controls the entirety of East, South, and Southeast Asia, as well as parts of eastern Siberia, and the recently conquered Scandinavian Penisula. At the start of the story, Japan has successfully conquered more than half of South America from the latest war with the Organization of American States.

Historically, gaining contact with the western world through Marco Polo's expedition to the east, Japan would become one of the first places in which the high energy mineral known as anglodite, which in turn was named after the Anglo-Saxons of England, was discovered. Originally a feudal land, the shift from the Tokugawa Shogunate to the Empire of Japan began in the aftermath of the Meiji Restoration, and the resulting Boshin War; in which Emperor Meiji's power was violently restored at the expense of the ex-shogun Tokugawa Yoshinobu and his followers.

Organization of American States []

The Organization of American States, or O.A.S., is a supranational economic and political union encompassing all of North and South America, with its capital city being Washington D.C. in the United States. Compared to Imperialistic Japan, the OAS is a liberal democratic union of nations, in which each country's population elects a various number of Ministers and Representatives, who serve the titular role of that nation before a central government body known as the General Assembly. The OAS as a whole is headed by a Secretary-General, who is voted by the American nations. However, each member-state is still sovereign and therefore may act in their own interests as long as it doesn't violate OAS law, and is mostly responsible for their own military forces.

Though it would not come into being until the middle of the twentieth century, the Organization of American States' roots began during the American Revolution, in which George Washington and the Continental Congress launched a successful war of independence against Great Britain, resulting in the birth of the United States of America. In the decades after the American Revolution, most of the Americas (except Canada) would borrow a chapter from the United States' playbook and break away from Europe, thus giving way to several new nations such as Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, etc. For a time, these countries would remain politically divided, and while the Americas had somewhat united via the Pan-American Union (founded in 1890 as the International Union of American Republics) by the early twentieth century, events would soon force them to truly join forces.

The finale of World War II would see the Empire of Japan gobble up all of East Asia. Countries like Mexico, the nations of Central America, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, and even the United States began to fear a potential Japanese invasion of their western coasts. The U.S. had more reason to fear so, as it and the Allies had just defeated Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany and were already reeling from the failed war with Japan (i.e. the First Pacific War). It didn't help the Soviet Union had just begun to emerge as a global power despite suffering so many losses at the hands of Germany. As such, between March and May 1948, led by United States Secretary of State George Marshall, the Ninth International Conference of American States was held in Bogotá, Colombia, a meeting which led to a pledge by members to fight communism and imperialism in the western hemisphere. From this, the Pan-American Union was officially reorganized into the Organization of American States, a new superpower that would keep countries like Japan and the Soviet Union in check.

Throughout its history, the OAS would be in conflict with its primary rival, Japan through minor skirmishes until the Empire formally declared war in 2010 after the conquest of the United Kingdom, culminating into the Second Pacific War.

European Union []

The European Union, or E.U., is a supranational economic and political union encompassing all of Europe and Africa, with its capital city being the city of Brussels in Belgium. Similar to the Organization of American States, the EU is a liberal democratic union of nations, in which each country's population elects a various number of MEPs (Member of the European Parliament), who serve the titular role of that nation before a central government body known as the European Parliament. The EU as a whole is headed by a President, who is voted by the European nations. However, each member-state is still sovereign and therefore may act in their own interests as long as it doesn't violate EU law, and is mostly responsible for their own military forces.

Peace Mark[]

Originally formed to "eliminate war" from the world, the terrorist organization known as Peace Mark was primarily opposed to all three superpowers (Japan, the Americas, and Europe), as well as the United Kingdom for manipulating events with anglodite distribution. It was destroyed sometime after the Anglo-Japanese War, though there are reports of remnant forces still existing.
