The official religion of Nippon is called Shinto and has been so for thousands of years since the Murlocs first uplifted the Japanese. During Nippon's history it has existed as an amorphous mix of nature worship, fertility cults, divination techniques, hero worship, and shamanism and unusually it has no recognized founder.

Beneath the Roju stands the Ometsuke, and the Daiyo with the Ometsuke controlling major fortresses throughout the Empire, and the Daiyo standing as lords of land.

The military of the Empire of Nippon is dominated by the personal forces of the different vassals under the Shogun, but other then these personal forces stands three large Orders in the form of the Order of the Jade Serpent, Shado-Pan, and the Hatamoto of which all stand under the personal control of the Shogun.
