Are the Celestia/sun posters supposed to resemble Imperialist/fascist Japan?
Not particularly - the setting is an AU where the day/night cycle has come to an end and the world is in an eternal winter. They still manage to survive because of great domes that gave an artificial sky, but those recently failed, hence the black sky, but fortunately not until after they had the necessary tech to grow food under artificial light. So "bringing the sun again" is a rallying cause for them (that justifies this tyranny to the public) and a big part of their iconography. Also, for that poster in particular, the red and white works with only 2 printing colors (black and red), and the red streaks emphasize the rising sun.
