Dawnland (English: Japan, Dawnlandish: 日本, Nihon or Nippon, Root of the Sun) is an in the Frithful Highsea, east of Midric and Mornfrithland, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to Taiwan in the south. Dawnland's name in Midrickish tokens is often as "Land of the Rising Sun", and comes as one of the easternmost rikes in the world. It is made of over 6,000 ilands, the main 4 of which are Hokkaidō, Honshū, Shikoku, and Kyūshū.
Most of Dawnland's ilands are hilly, among them revetown, Tōkyō, is the world's greatest, with over thirty micklered indwellers. The land has a wet loftlay with four yeartides; rain falls heavily in the throughout the ilands. The north-west has some of the world's heaviest snowfalls in the winter from cold damp winds blowing over from Siberia., (highest peak: ). The land is given to molten rock outflows, earthquakes, and tidewaves. Woodland makes up some 7/10ths of the land, with only a few steads fit for farming. Beside this rugged landscape, it is one of the most huddled lands in the world: its
Dawnland has only one folkstock, with only a few Midrickish and Mornfirthish outlanders. The far north is home to the arland Ainu folk, although only a few Ainu speakers are left. Dawnlandish is the rikish tung. Although not akin to Midrickish, Dawnlandish is written with rune tokens orded from Midric. The two most treaded worships are the homeborn Shintō, and the Bhuddish faith, brought over from Midric awhile the H5th. Dawnland has the longest-living folk in the world.

In the days before writing the ilands were dwelt upon by the Jōmon and Yayoi folk. The Jōmon may have been the forefathers of the Ainu, who now live only in the northernmost herns of the ilands. Slowly the folk became a kith led by overlords who were said to be ervers of the sun god Amaterasu.
Beginning in the 500s, Dawnland took up many Chinish, like their ways of writing and worship. The Buddhish lieftroth forblew, and with the thought of fleeing its might the overlords shifted the headtown from Nara to Heian-kyō ("Frithburg," nowadays Kyōto). In spite of this the overlords became mere kingheads, losing their true rikemight to wyelords, though they never lost their throne. Dawnland thus became a feudal kith led by clans of highborn knights known as samurai (Dawnlandish for "knight").
By the H16th, Dawnland was beset by nearly unbroken borough-hild. It was brought to one again in the year 1600 by Ieyasu Tokugawa, who became the sei-i taishōgun or simply shōgun (Dawnlandish, "Great Wildman-Taming Herethane") and shifted the headtown to Edo (now Tokyo). The leadership of the Tokugawa clan was marked by 268 years of frith, one of the longest spans in the eretide of the world, and also aloofness from the outside world. The overwhelming lieftroth of this time was Kong Fuzi-troth, which was the root of the law. This tharlreveship ended in 1854 once the B.F.A. sent ships to Yokohama bidding Dawnland to open its doors to trade. After the Meiji tide of 1868, Dawnland took up many Evelandish and Americkish thews and quickly became a worldmight.
In the H20th its kith was more and more overtaken by the leadership of tharlrevers, who took over wide swaths of East Sunriseland. Throuhout The Twith World Wye, Dawnland was sworn with Theechland. It was thereafter held by the Banded Folkdoms of Americksland, and by law forswore its own right to make wye, keeping only a small selfwarding wyeband. In frith Dawnland has become a leader in craftlore.
