This article deals with Shinto as it refers to Nationstates. For more general information, see the Wikipedia article on the subject.

Relatively few NS nations profess the Shinto faith. Most are nations with a similar culture and political system to that of Japan and, instead of orienting around the nature of a single Emperor or land, most Shinto nations on NS regard their own country and Emperor as uniquely of the kami.

Some Shinto nations claim that their rulers have a direct descent from an important kami, such as Tisopea. Others, like Adoki, claim to be the true heirs of the Japanese royal line.

The region Feudal Japan makes use of Shinto titles in its regional ranking system.
