According to the history, Name of Nakama (仲間) firstly mentioned after the end of Genpei War where the remaining member of Taira Clan claimed the "southern land" which later become their territory. From the original Japanese Languange, term of Nakama (仲間) literally means united or comrade. It's believed that the name Nakama was taken to unite the remaining power of Taira Clan in the southern land to face the Minamoto Shogunate from the north.
Archeological research indicated that Nakama firstly inhabited from around 7,000 BC. Settlers believed moved from the mainland asia thoughout Japanese archipelago toward the southeastern part of Honshu and Izu islands.
Pre-Genpei Nakahara (Before 1180)
Nakama prior to Genpei war in late 12th century are in the direct control of Imperial House of Japan. Nakama known as Southern land or Nangoku (南国) with the central power at Naga Province (名賀国). At this period, Nakama divides into 36 provinces though the southern Seijima Island are barely settled and Ogasawara Island not included in the map at this point.
Genpei War and Taira Shogunate
With the Genpei War in Honshu, in 1180 Ichihara-kyo in modern day Ichihara city established as the temporary seat of Japan's Imperial Court, and therefore the capital of the country, for roughly six months in 1180 during genpei war. Eventually with the lost from Genpei War, Taira clan move from Japanese area to the southern land, establishing feudalism over the land ultimately split Nakama from now Minamoto clan ruled Japan. In 1187 Nakama Imperial government officially established alongside with the feudalistic power of Taira Shogunate with the Taira no Suzuki (later known as Emperor Ichiriki) as the imperial leader. Nakama capital set in Ichihara-kyo.
Warring State Period
(to be filled)
In 1863, Nakama emperor at that time, Emperor Yamaguchi (1820-1884) decide to open the Nakama to the world after the recent contact with the west after some countries demand some relationship which later ends up with 1863 Fujiyoshi Battle. At the same point, Nakama also begun to modernize the economic, military and industrial sector where it grows rapidly from 1865-1902. At this period of time, Nakama already gather a stable territory (which is the current territory) with the population around 30 millions which made it into one of the prominent country in east asia (though it still isolate itself from the modern political systems).
After Empress Anzu take the throne of the Imperial leader on 1884, Nakama started its major expansion to the remaining area of today Nakama territory and some other surrounding area. Empress Anzu started to unified the last shogunate of Nakama, Ryuma Shogunate in 1885 and successfully gather the area and establish the government there. Later on Nakama able to annexed several minor island in the west of Naichi Island including the Kirigakure area.
With the recent expansion of Nakama, the neighboring Nami Empire in the south of Nakama not missed from Nakama expansion. Though in 1889, Empress Anzu started from the diplomation toward Nami Empire imperial government to be mixed into Nakama area but ends up with nothing. in July 1889, Nakama Military attacked Nami Empire brutally and caused the later Nakama-Nami War after a series of miscomunication between the Nakamaese Military and Nakama imperial government about the decission toward Nami empire. Moreover, Nakama military leader, Admiral Katsuda commanded the Nakama military to raid the Nami Empire capital and caused the Kuchikawa massacre. Admiral himself later punished by Empress Anzu for abuse of power in 1890. The war come to end with Nami empire annexed into Nakama in 1892 after the Atatakai Treaty though the relation between Namian and the other Nakamaese stil strained even until now.
At 1895, tensions created in the relationship between Nakama with its Neighbors, Japan and Okatabawashi. Tensions more rising after Nakama decide to embargo the Japan products to Nakama in July 1896. In 1896 by attacking the Tokyo bay, Nakama declares war to Japan (First Japan-Nakama War). This war which took place between 1896-1897 took atleast 21k casualities in Nakama side and 12k casualities in Japan side. Wars ended on 1902 after both sides decides to ceasefire and most of Japan territory which already taken over by Nakama also returned to the original owner.
In the reign Emperor Rikuto, Nakama remained away from western partnership in early 20 century to avoid the disruption of its sovereignty refer to what happened in southeast asian. Though this policy is limited to the trading agreement between Nakama with any european or american nations. This policy affected Nakama role in world war 1 which make it remains away from any confrontation from any country and pick the neutral side. Moreover, Nakama refuses to Join League of Nations from the first time it was founded until it was dissolved. However, Nakama still developing every sectors based on progress in other countries. This period oftenly called semi-isloation era of Nakama which took place from 1901-1935.
Japan Occupation and World War 2
In the end of year 1935, Nakama and Japan relationship heated up again. A disagreement in the military operation of Japan in Nakama area lead up into the tension between both country and later ends up into the Second Nakama-Japan war in January 1936 which started by the sudden attack of Port of Shisaki, Matsu. This attack made an alert to the Nakamaese Military which later bring this attack messages to the Nakama Emperor at that moment as a message of war later on, this conflict escalated quickly into a full scale war with Nakamaese Military attack into Chiba, Japan (though this attack easily intercepted because Nakama military was outnumbered). In 18 March 1936, Japanese troops invades Karakuri island which lovated in the border of Nakama and Japan resulting the "72 Hours Battle of Karakuri Island". About 120,000 Japanese troops siege Karakuri City from land, sea and air. Nakamaese military respond this attack by placing 150,000 backup to Karakuri island. After more than three days of intense fighting, their casualties far exceeded initial expectations with around more than 10k from Japan side, 40k from Nakamaese military side and estimated around 140,000 civilian casualities in this island including the mass murder that happened in this island during the battle.
After sucessfully taking over Karakuri Island, in 17 April 1936 Japanese troops expand to the mainland Nakama by attacking Aichi City though this attack intercepted by Nakamaese military by sending over 1 million forces to defend this area Taking advantage of the distraction of the attack to Aichi city, Japan military entered Nanohana bay and invades the capital of Nakama, Nanohana City. More than 1 million Japanese military from land, water and air deployed during the attack to Nanohana. This attack wasnt par with Nakama military at that moment which around 750,000 defending this city from Japan attack. After failed defending Nanohana, Nakama Emperor commanded the emergency state by moving the capital to the Shuto making it more safe to plan the war strategy.
After 10 month of war and losing a number of military strength, in January 1937 Nakama held a conference with Japan in Nagawa, Nakama Empire to end the war by making a ceasefire in both side. The conference ends up with an agreement that annexed about 70% of Nakama Empire area into Japan Empire territory and Nakama Empire's military should make an aid to Japan Empire anytime if they needed and both country decided to not attack each other in any circumtances. During 1937-1940, more than 2-5 millions Japanese mobilized to the annexed area of Nakama though, firstly this action was rejected by local Nakamaese but then they're agree with this action. In world war 2, these area became the front line for Japan to the pacific theatere of world war 2 which later caused several attack from the allies forces and the worst was Ohara Incident (オハラ事件) in 10 August 1945 when the allies sent a nuke to this city which made to be front line for Japan Empire to the pacific area during world war 2.
Meanwhile, the remaining Empire of Nakama under the 1937 Nagawa Agreement, Nakama government declare war to the allies power in 19 December 1941. Later on, Empire of Nakama signed Tripartite Pact unoficially as one of the support for the Axis Power. Furthermore, Nakamaese Forces helped Japanese forces in their expansion to the Southeast Asian.
In 28 February 1945, about 80,000 allies forces attacking the southern coast of Nami, a part of Annexed Nakama territory as a part of Volcano and Ryukyu Islands campaign caused the 1945 Battle of Nami. Later on 6 March, They raided Asuka City and entered the northern part of Nakama Annexed Territory. On 8-10 March 1945 Allies forces raiding city of Nanohana as the one of the campaign to access Japan from the Nakama island. With these series of battle, allies forces gained control half of Nakama Annexed Territory from Japan empire, though several cities such as Oshima, Miyake and Ohara still controlled by Japan forces.
The last operation of Japanese of World War 2 in Nakamaese land happened on 22 March 1945 in the Sakitama which already been taken over by allied forces before hand. Though Nakamaese force firstly encourage to join this operation but they refused to do since they're already want to quit from this war (This action later leading to several conflict between both countries). This operation was begun in Ohara which is the main power of Japanese in Nakama Territory. In the end, this operation was successfully knocked Allies forces from Sakitama to Nanohana Bay area.
After sucessfully entered mainland Nakama, Allies Forces started to raiding Nakama area, started from Shizukana air raid in 10 April 1945. with the domination of western area of Nakama, allies started to open attack to Nakama which later leads the Battle of Nagawa in 25 April 1945 which provoked after allies launch air raid toward the largest city of Nakama at that time. During the raid reprted almost 37% of structures on the city destroyed and weakened the Nakama power even more after the secondary air raid toward Atarashima in 27 April 1945 and later the air raid to Shuto City, the government central of Nakama during world war 2 in 28 April 1945 destroying the muncipal civil offices and disurp the government of Nakama.
Allied force firstly planned to launch full attack to the remaining Empire of Nakama after Japan surrender in 14 August 1945, but this action consindered as unnecessary since Nakama already stop the war activities and surrender in 2 May 1945. Allies offered several negotiation to the Empire of Nakama after the war though these negotiation always end up tough and no solution could be made until January 1946.
Post Occupation and Nakama War
After Japanese Empire surrender in world war 2 the formal statement of Japanese in Nakama done on 7 September 1945 in Nanohana. Later on, the U.S forces lands on Nanohana and occupied the whole annexed land while Soviet take control the northern part of annexed area (Ishuto and Taiheiyo area). On 15 January 1946, a civil government was established in the annexed part of Nakama which was occupied by U.S. This action was issued by The empire of Nakama which claimed that area was originally owned by Empire of Nakama before the Japan occupation. Several conference held by both side, but again no solution could be made. Situation between the occupied land and Empire of Nakama getting worse and much escalated. While the Soviet occupied land, a civil government was formed as a communist state later in 26 July 1946 this state getting a lot of resistance (mostly the Zensen 1946 riot) and ends up with Empire of Nakama regained this territory.
After the situation getting worse an escalated, Empire of Nakama started a full attack to Nanohana (Battle of Nanohana) in order to regain their original capital city on 28 September 1946 and abled to regain this capital city in 13 days. With this attack, Empire of Nakama declare a war in order to regain their original territory. Until 10 January 1947, Nakama Empire able to regain quarter of the annexed territory though they already lost about 193,000 soldier on this war due to the strength of the allied forces. In 17 January 1947, A major conference was held by Allied forces in Nanohana in order to end this war. This conferention result is to held a referendum for the residents in the whole territory of annexed area. The result of this referendum is around 74% of the residents choosed Empire of Nakama which meant that Empire of Nakama regained their original territory from allies. Finally in 3 February 1947, Empire of Nakama officially regained the original territory which they had before Japan occupation.
Revolution and Restoration
Situation in Nakama from 1948-1951 which full of crisis in every sectors had leading to a political crisis in 1952. This escalating situation later leads to the Revolution that happened in 13-15 May 1952. On April 1952 Pro-Democracy group from Nakama demanding the reformation of Nakama government system which was too old and couldn't run properly in modern days in their opinion. They made several protests in the front of Nanohana Imperial Palace, Nanohana. Though most of these protest ends up in a riot with the imperial police and the Nanohana city police. On 5 May 1952, Almost 2 millions of Nakamaese protesting in the street of some major cities in Nakama demanding the Nakama Emperor at that time to reform the government system in Nakama and make more people involved in the policy making (more democracy). This mass protest also ends up with nothing.
On 7 May 1952, several Pro-Reformation mass organization of Nakamaese held a conferention and planned a Coup D'Etat to the current Nakama Emperor, Emperor Shigai. On 9.20am morning of 12 May 1952, a Coup D'Etat launched in the street of Nanohana which later turned into a bloody battle which took casuality 32 people deaths and dozens are injured.

After this announcement, the mass are celebrating and then dissolved.
Emperor Kazuo first action was to made a new constitution of Nakama. On 25 February 1953, with a few officials of Nakama at that moment, Nakama 1953 Base Constitution (仲間1953基本憲法) a new constitution was made in order to reform everything in Nakama. The constitution also changed Nakama government from full monarchy into the parliamentary democracy under constitutional monarchy. Later on, on 16 July 1954, Nakama held it's first elections and resulted Hiraku Nishimura as the first Prime Minister of Nakama.
Although the new government was formed, the foreign politics of Nakama toward many countries in the world still not well. Eventhough so, Nakama able to normalize its foreign politics with some help of several asian nations. After the situation was getting better, Nakama start its foreign relationship with many nations in the worlds in every sectors.
From 1954-1980, Nakama has developed from the "messed up nation" to one of the world's developed nations. At that range of time, Economy sector growth rapidly also with the education sector which also bring the "hi-tech" to the nation. Nakama also had a "Baby Boom" which also increased its population rapidly during years 1960-1990 (Nanohana, as the capital of Nakama ever suffer overpopulation in years 1990s since the very high population growth though this overpopulation handled by the government with transmigration to the other area in Nakama). With these much developments, Nakama become one of largest economy center in the world alongside with several neigboring nations in the east asia.
In 1965, Nakama parliament decide to ban any of communism and socialist influence in Nakama including dismissing the communist party which still active in parliament due to the recent debate about the communism after seeing situation in several countries in southeast asia (mostly about Karasem 1962 Communism Revolution) which everyone concerned to be happened also in Nakama and its incompatibility with Nakama constitution. This decision however lead to several protest from the communism pro societies yet this wave of protest didnt lead to any larger conflict neither riot since the government able to convince them.

Though then, Nakama suffer another worse earthquake in 2011
Nakama entertainment industries later begun to compete with the surrounding countries in 1990s with the rise of the number of local productions of "manga" (comics) , "anime", films and dramas, and musics. As for today, Nakama entertainment industry become one of the main industry of the country though this industry currently compete very hard with the neighboring countries.
Nakamaese engineers from 1970s developing the technologies in the several sectors such as the earthquake and tsunami engineering (structural), energy conservation (environmental) and electrical technologies. In the structural engineering, with seeing what happened in Shimotake 1981 Earthquake, Nakama built tsunami wall with several alarms in its coastal area (though in 2011 these still failed to intercept the disaster which happened that time which was bigger than what predicted beforehand). Meanwhile, one of the best achievement in environmental sector is on 2009, Nakama noted as its electricity almost 80% come from non fossil fuel energy which also one of the national achievement to reduce the greenhouse effect.
