Tokyo is the seat of the Japanese government and the Imperial Palace, and the home of the Japanese Imperial Family.
Tokyo in "Joe Steele"Edit
Tokyo was the scene of fierce fighting and sustained bombing during Operation: Downfall, the United States invasion of Japan in 1945. After the war, Japan was divided between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Tokyo became the capital of South Japan, the puppet state created under the direction of U.S. President Joe Steele.
Tokyo in "Ready for the Fatherland"Edit
United Tokyo was destroyed in the 1950s by a Soviet sunbomb smuggled into Tokyo's harbor by freighter. Several hundred thousand were killed. In response, the United States dropped their own sunbomb on Soviet occupied Hokkaido. Only the mediation of German leader Erich von Manstein and the timely death of Joseph Stalin prevented the exchange from escalating into a larger war.
Tokyo in The War That Came EarlyEdit
Tokyo was the capital city of Japan at the time of the Race's invasion. The Race destroyed Tokyo with an explosive-metal bomb in 1943 when they learned Tokyo was the site of Japan's nuclear program.
