The Kagenate of Waterfall State is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kage Ukataka Matsumoto with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 3.632 billion Waterfalleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hidden Waterfall. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Waterfallean economy, worth 666 trillion Ryous a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 183,446 Ryous, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, the people's love for Kage Ukataka Matsumoto is little more than self-preservation, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and the nation leads the Pacific in per capita stalking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Waterfall State's national animal is the Tailed Beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Northern Temples.

Waterfall State is ranked 239,320th in the world and 5,786th in the Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
