Nihon is made up of 5 lesser nations or extended clans ruled over by an Emperor who rules by divine mandate. Each lesser nation is made up of a set of clans typically which all perform slightly different functions but intermarry and exist linked together. Each Nation has a direct link to one element of the five elements the Nihon see in the world.

Samurai make up the formal warrior caste of Nihon.

Shugenja are the mystics and sages of Nihon.

Ninja are the spies, saboteurs, and assassins of Nihon.
