More likely, Orion threatened to go to war if Nihon didn't do something about the pirates.

Any kind of major expansion can only be undertaken with permission from the Emperor, and no noble family wants to see either (a) a rival gain more power and territory or (b) allow any samurai clan to become too independent by gaining more land that isn't held by a noble family.

Most of the clans are given land by the noble families to hold in trust. They're allowed to take income from them, but they don't directly own the land unless that was part of the deal that they got in return for policing the noble's land, collecting taxes, etc.

Riiight. I remember that from Japanese feudalism. Basically, the Emperor owns everything in fee simple, and the nobility usually just runs it for him on lease agreements.

Things are not so simple in Ohio, which is something Louis the Tenth and Fourteenth bitterly resents from a childhood spent as a ping-pong ball being batted around the country as various noble grandees rebelled and menaced the capital.

It is simply and it isn't. Rights and duties, inheritance, adequate compensation for service, grants of land, etc, leads to a very complicated web of interlocking problems.

But yeah, the city-state on the coast: E_F, if you want to do a joint-thing against it, that'd be cool in my book.
