Japan has a parliamentary type of government such as Canada and Britain. Unlike the French or the Americans, the Japanese dol not elect their president directly. Diet members will elect their prime minister among themselves. The duty of the prime minister is to form and lead the cabinet of the ministers of the state.

Japan's constitution came about in 1947.  It is founded on three certain principles: The sovereignty of her people, the respect for basic human rights, plus the renunciation of any war. This constitution will also stipulate the freedom of her three branches within the government. These would be the Diet (legislative), the cabinet (executive), and the courts (judicial).

The national parliament of Japan is the Diet. It is the chief member of state power. It is also the only law-making organ of the state. The Diet consists of the 480 seat House of Representative and the 242 seat House of Councillors. Once a citizen reaches 20 years of age they can vote in the elections.

The Judicial power will lie with their Supreme Court as well as lower courts, for example summary courts, district courts and high courts. The Supreme Court will consist of the chief justice plus 14 various other justices. These are all appointed by their cabinet. Most of the cases will be handled by the district courts. The summary courts will deal with certain problems such as traffic violations. A system of lay judges was started in May of 2009. With this system, there are six adult residents (20 years or older) who will be chosen randomly to each act as a lay judge in all criminal cases that are tried in the district courts.

There are many municipal and 47 prefectural governments within Japan. The responsibilities will include providing welfare, education, plus other services. They also encompass building and maintenance of infrastructure that includes utilities. These administrative activities bring the government into closer contact with the local people. Local people will choose assembly members and heads of the regional governments through elections.

Japan is situated in the Pacific Ocean. It is basically an Island country that has over 3000 islands in total. It is a country in East Asia with China, North Korea, South Korea and Russia as its neighbors.

Japan is basically a monarchy, however, it better be called a constitutional monarchy as the Monarchy has limited powers and has vested all its powers in the Prime Minister. She/he is the symbolic representative of the state and unity. The Prime Minster is the official head of state and is responsible to the Japanese public for everything he has done. His name is Empress Akihito.

Japan is a constitutional monarchy with the emperor having very little power. He is merely a figurehead. Power is mainly held by the prime minister and the bicameral legislature - Diet. The prime minister should be a member of any two  houses of the Diet and should enjoy the confidence of the house. The prime minister appoints a cabinet which assists him in the governance. At least a majority of the cabinet should be members of the Diet.

The name of Japan literally means "the sun's origin", it is also referred to at times as "The Land of The Rising Sun", a name which has been given to the country as of its eastward position towards mainland Asia.

The capital of Japan is Tokyo, which is also its largest city. The total population of Japan is estimated as 128 million people, which makes it the tenth largest population in the world.
