After the First World War, the appearance of a democratic regime was established in Japan. Since 1925, the bicameral parliament has been elected by universal suffrage of males. The ministers were responsible only to the emperor, who possessed full executive power. Two powerful groups had great power: the monopolies, which controlled the economy, press and political parties, and the army, which controlled the political life of the country as a whole.
Since 1940, representatives of heavy industry concerns have occupied the most important positions in the government. All political parties in the country were disbanded. Only one (nationalist) has survived.
