Japan


The yakuza's influence is more pervasive and more accepted within Japanese society than organized crime is in America, and the yakuza have a firm and long-standing political alliance with Japan's right-wing nationalists. In addition to the typical vice crimes associated with organized crime everywhere, the yakuza are well ensconced in the corporate world. Their influence extends beyond Japanese borders and into other Asian countries, and even into the United States. This is why after the RESONANCE most of Japan fell under the rule of the Yakuza. The time of the war-lords has returned but some believe it never really left the Nippon shores.

 

Many of the clans are actually now living up to their self-proclaimed history as machi-yokko (servants of the town) and are truly nurturing and protective of those under their rule. It is not possible for feudal Japan as it once was to return, not that any would wish it to be so, but the country has regressed to that of a land divided up among lords who are of the strongest of the Yakuza clans.

 

Japan's ancient mysticism permeates the islands. While the Yakuza clans struggle to maintain a country, fighting amongst themselves over the pieces of the pie, they are also contending with demons and other magical beings that once more seek to lay claim to lands. The land has become a veiled reflection of one of their ornate paintings depicting the plight of the Oni.
