It has been two weeks after the last chuunin exams, that were held in Amegakure. It has been two weeks ago since the world has seen more changes, by the hands of people who're leading their nations. Or people who have started something, in what they believe, to improve the situation of their state. Kumogakure The village hidden in the cloud has managed to improve their state. With improving their infrastructure and organizations, the northern nation has managed to grow. No longer do they suffer what seem to be leaders who only have interest in themselves, but now they seem to thrive somewhat under the Fifth Raikage. But while the Cloud has managed to grow in both land, military and somewhat economic manner, they aren't without problems. A small revolt has started by the old Antare clan. A clan that was to believed to be wiped out after they had expressed that the Fourth Raikage should step down and that the Third Raikage should be installed back. Which only showed that the small group of trained Antare shinobi don't believe in the death of the Third Raikage. Or that they just wish to grab power for themselves. Though the situation has been held under control, one week ago Waki Sanosuke had been found dead in his own home. There were no indications of a fight and many worry if it had been the rebellious Antare clan. Though it is still been investigated, it is clear that something must be done about the matter or else the Cloud might grow stagnant, again. Kirigakure It has been two weeks since the 'incident'. The incident where the Six Tails had been broken free from its container and started a rampage in the village hidden in the Mist. While the beast had been re-captured, the village was damaged and still there are many people that are trying to rebuild what has been damaged or destroyed. But the civil unrest that had been growing has erupted. Under the leadership of a few Kirigakure shinobi, the people have risen up against the rule of the Fifth Mizukage. They claim that they are sick of how they have been governed by the Mizukages. They say that they are sick of the oppression and tyrannical ways of their leaders. And now a revolution has begun. So far the revolution has managed to take hold of the three most western laid isles, preparing their smaller forces, compared to that of the Mizukage, to try to fight for their cause. Amegakure & Konohagakure The Empire of Akino A few reformations have been arranged and happen throughout what was first known as the Fire Union. A faction where the kages of the small countries around the Fire country had sworn loyalty to the Hokage. A faction that held the strongest military and economical power, which has grown due the better organized systems that have been introduced. A system where not only Konohagakure grew in might and influence, but the vassals of the Union came to prosper as well due the increasing cooperation. But now another reformation has been introduced. The Fire Daimyo has announced this week that he will step down and has appointed a new successor. The apprentice of the Hokage, none the less. This means that the kages of the vassal states would own their loyalty to soon two daimyo's. But over the week, every daimyo of the vassal states have stepped down, meaning that all the leaders and people in the Fire Union would need to swear loyalty towards the new successor of the Fire Daimyo. However, the higher ups of Konohagakure have managed to use it to transform the way how the Union works. With clever diplomacy and using the situation in which some vassals were in, the whole Union has been transformed into one single state. With Konohagakure as its capital, an empire has risen. But even while the reformation has goon rather smoothly, the new head of the state is too young. Due this the higher ups of Konohagakure have risen up as the regency council of the new Empress, ruling in her name until the time comes Kiyomi can lead the state. With the construction of a royal palace in Konohagakure, the people have and still are somewhat preparing for a new festival. The leaders of the provinces, the once vassal states of the Fire Union, have been invited to come towards the new palace in Konohagakure to celebrate and pay some honor to their new leader. Though one should take note that there are several rumours going on that not all seem to be fine within the strong nation. For there is a slight tension growing, noticed by the higher ups of Konohagakure. A slight tension that might give cause to something troublesome.
