North Japan, officially the Socialist People's Republic of Japan (SPRJ; Japanese: 日本社會主義人民共和國; Nipon Shakai Shugi Jinmin Kyōwakoku) was a socialist state that existed in Japan from 1947 to 1993, with formal soveriengty being recognized in 1952. A member of the Eastern Bloc, it was opposed by the American-backed Southern Japan and later the Western-allied Republic of Japan (South Japan). North Japan fell in 1993 when it reunified with the south, forming the current State of Japan.

Following the Surrender of Japan at the end of World War II and the subsequent occupation, the United States and Soviet Union divided Japan at the 36th parallel. The United States occupied Japan south of the 36th parallel and established the United States Army Military Government in Japan, while the Soviet Union established the Soviet Civil Administration in Japan. Tokyo was split between North and South Japan, until 1947 when North Japan moved its capital to Sendai
