Information about country:
Japan is the only remaining Empire in the world. However, currently the role of Emperor is merely ceremonial: the monarch symbolizes the national unity. One of the most notable aspects of Japanese history are the samurai- the feudal cast which played important role in life and development of Japanese society from the Middle ages through the period of isolation (XVII to the middle XIX century) and Meiji Restoration (leading to modernization of the country in Western way) until after World War II. Demilitarization of Japanese economy resulted in several positive outcomes, such as development of different kinds of industry (such as automobiles manufacturing), high technologies and electronics. Traditions still play important role in life of the society. The religions with the most numbers of followers include Shintoism and Buddhism. The earthquake on the March, 11, 2011 and it's consequences demonstrated serious challenges and questioned future development and use of nuclear energy worldwide.
