They are part of an alliance with /a/ and /c/. Due to the terms of the alliance, their base of operations is located on /a/'s Hokkaido, and not /jp/'s island.
The Biome sectionEdit
The island is fairly small, only 500 at its longest, although it does have an extra island off to the North. The biome is plains, forest and swamp, with taiga on the northern island.
/a/'s Hokkaido, however, is mostly taiga with a more temperate climate on the southern peninsula. The main section of the island is encased in a thick sheet of sea ice, and the centre of the island sports a spruce forest.
/jp/ is run as a benevolent dictatorship, where questioning the decisions of the authority is encouraged. Participation in organized activities is optional, but highly recommended, and those who do not participate are expected to be considerate of those who do.
The faction founder and current leader is Super☆Paper.
Hierarchically, the faction is organized geographically, with a council in charge of the fortress, and pairs of players in charge of each strategical outpost. There are also players who hold specific roles, such as lead architect, head of engineering, etc.
