Fact of the Day: Japan's Manchuria

During World War II, Japan's victory in the Manchuria region in China allowed them to install their own government there. They even made it an actual nation with former (and last) Chinese Emperor Puyi as its monarch. Though Puyi was merely a puppet ruler and the nation known as Manchukuo dissolved after World War II. After Soviet occupation, the land eventually went back to China.
