"Right and wrong are not what separate us and our enemies. It's our different standpoints, our perspectives that separate us. Both sides blame one another. There's no good or bad side. Just two sides holding different views." THE STORYAfter the Fourth Ninja War the world, it changed… The good feelings and newfound unity led the world to unite under one banner. The Kage's formed a high council to govern all the countries. They make decisions as a group instead of as individuals because they know the truth now. The entities that threaten their way of life cannot be felled by rogue states; they must be one Shinobi Nation. For 150 years the peace of the Shinobi Union prospers and the terror from above and beyond does not return. However enlightenment is upon civilization. The world has been peaceful; poverty and starvation are at an all-time low as the world reaches heights of never before seen posterity. But there is one prevailing thought that has climbed into the social consciousness. Are the Kage representatives of the people if the people did not choose them? If the threat that banded the world together never comes, if the death and destruction that was guaranteed by their division, doesn't really exist then does the world need leaders that were never chosen by the people? If the world has prospered then does it really need to be fixed on the gamble that it can be better? The question knows no borders, knows no one segmentation, knows no age. The smaller villages who feel as though they are misrepresented by the Gokage began to enact change, they are, Kusakagure, Tanikagure, and Amekagure, the Small Three. These lands decide their governance should be a democratic one and acting in concert these three lands are the faces of democracy. Elsewhere there are rumblings in the Country of Iron as an ancient religious sect brings about a renaissance to what is known the world over as a bastion of neutrality. The rumblings of this group's past indiscretions is but a whisper but as the world changes there are those who distrust the new religion taking form in the Country of Iron. The world is at a crossroads, unsure of what it will and can be. The only thing that is certain is that the Destiny of this generation will decide the path. Please see thread for more information.
