It went from imperialism to exporting cars, electronics, and more around the world. Life expectancy in this country is 83 years, the second highest in the world. The transportation systems are efficient and fast, and crime rates are relatively low.

Education systems here are among the highest in the world, along with South Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore. It also has the third largest economy in the world and a huge stock exchange in Tokyo. Japan should be a model (it probably is already) for developing countries across Asia.
