Wakoku is a Japanese shard and the name is derived from "Wa" which is an ancient name for Japan in use from about 300 BCE through roughly 700 CE.
Curiously, Wakoku shard went live the same day as the Europa shard, the first and only time multiple new shards came into existence together after Ultima Online's initial launch.
