* Supported by the fact that, if 1984 is to be believed, Eurasia and Eastasia never ally with each other, which is unlikely if Eastasia were China, but makes sense if Eastasia is Imperial Japan. After all, after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, neither Russia nor Japan liked the America or the rest of the Anglosphere, but they both respected them for being {{Badass}} warriors. If the war ended in a conditional armistice, rather than nuclear weapon-induced unconditional surrender, Japan would have retained considerable territory on the Mainland and the world would not have developed a healthy aversion to the use of nuclear weapons.

The class that is selected is always the one that is determined to be the one most likely to produce someone that shall grow up to be a potential threat to the regime. The BR program insures that almost all of these students are killed and that the "winner" is so traumatized by his ordeal and so marginalized by society that the odds of him ever accomplishing anything are zero.

BR is set in (novelverse and mangaverse) an AU where Japan apparently won WorldWarTwo, or TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture in the movie. In either case, this is several hundred years before ''The Hunger Games'' starts...but the government of Panem could have remembered the BR Program, and modeled the Hunger Games on it.

[[WMG:''Film/BattleRoyale'' and ''ChildrenOfMen'' are in the same continuity]]
BR is set a few years before Children of Men, before everyone outside Britain went nuts, but the first symptoms are already showing. The unruly schoolchildren are the last generation -- and completely detached. Taking parts of BR2 ([[FanonDiscontinuity and only some parts]]), the youth of Japan will rise against the grownups, resulting in a civil war which more or less wipes out the nation but the 2030's of COM.

[[WMG: ''BattleRoyale'' and Literature/NineteenEightyFour are in the same world]]
Obviously, the totalitarian Republic of Greater East Asia is the same nation as Eastasia. Orwell says that Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia are all the same, and the similarities are striking. ''BattleRoyale'' shows the rewriting of history books (Noriko is genuinely surprised that people had it better in the "feudal times"), publicly broadcast executions as entertainment, propaganda against the "evil imperialists", and even a Big Brother figure in the Great Dictator.

Gogo Yubari could easily be the winner of a previous BattleRoyale, and have either kept the weapon she was randomly assigned (the meteor hammer) or obtained another one after going into O-Ren Ishii's service.
