    French Intelligence service staged a coup in Vietnam which finally put the French in control of the country. The French had nearly 6,000 troops in the country and despite the Fall were finally able to reinforce there position in IndoChina. This lead to a clash with Siam
    over Cambodia and Laos. The Empire of the Rising Sun was too busy try to finally create order in the Chaos that was China

    while France was slowly gaining control over Vietnam and Cambodia it was facing opposition from Siam. In China the Imperial Army of the Rising Sun was carrying out a series of "Bandit" suppression missions. The Empire had decided that it would be a good idea to provide food and medicine to the Chosen Kingdom rather than allow it to collapse and become a breeding ground for Piracy.

    The Empire of the Rising Sun had managed to gain control over a considerable amount of China. Its Military were carrying out punitive missions into territory that it did not control. The Empire wanted to discourage Chinese "bandits" from causing trouble. The result was the creation of a large number of Military strong points. The Emperor's order to aid the people of the Kingdom of Chosen had prevented starvation and plague from breaking out. It also prevented Piracy and chanelled activitied which were productive not destructive.

    The Asian Mainland saw a continued struggle as the Empire of the Rising Sun continued to battle to establish order. The Royal Crown Colony of Hong Kong had greatly expanded. It had grown more prosperous through trade.

    The Empire of the Rising Sun was supporting Thailand as a check on the French. There was some concern regarding relations between the Empire and the Kingdom of Hawaii. A desire was for a meeting between the Leaders of the governments of both nations.

    The Empire of the Rising Sun was very concern when it heard of the Anarchist uprisings in the Caroline Islands. The Military was concern that there might be trouble in China which would require even more troops to restore order.

    The Empire of the Rising Sun held a firm grip on China. In Korea the Korean Population was beginning to move out of the Pusan region and was expected to resettle what had been the Korean Capital region.

    British Troops were in Tibet. The British Government had authorized the training and equipping of an enlarged Tibetan Army. Part of this was to watch the Russians and another factor was to keep the Empire of the Rising Sun from swallowing up Tibet.
    The End result was that the British Political Officers created the Anglo-Tibetan Scouts. This force was able to operate in China and carry out intelligence missions.

    The Empire of the Rising Sun was carrying out a punitive expedition to Northwestern China. The force was around 29,000 men and then the Imperial forces would pull back to the south. A decision had been mad to not press forward with an attempt to subjugate the rest of China.

    After the Punitive Expedition to Northwest China the army of the Rising Sun withdrew toward the coast. The fight had been nasty and it was clear that Chinese Nationalism had re-awoken.

    In 1897 a delegation of Chinese made its way to the Tibetan capital to meet with the British Government Representative to Tibet. They met to inquire about the setting up of talks leading to the recognition of the Chinese Government.
