Japan is a constituional monarchy, and consists of a number of islands of the east coast of Asia. It was discovered by the western world by the Portuguese in 1542. In the 17th century, it shut out almost all contact with the west, fearing the foreign presence to be a military and cultural threat. After 1854 following a visit by Commodore Perry of the USA, Japan rapidly modernised and industrialised, established a parliamentary government, and rapidly grew into one of the leading nations. After its defeat in the second world war, it renounced military aggression, and made further strong economic progress.
