Current Year: 2014
The Japanese government, a constitutional monarchy, is based on a parliamentary cabinet system. Executive power is vested in the cabinet, which consists of the prime minister and 13 ministers of state that collectively are responsible to the Diet. The prime minister, who must be a member of the Diet, is designated by the Diet. In practice, the prime minister is always a member of the House of Representatives. The prime minister has the power to appoint and dismiss the ministers of state, all of whom must be civilians and a majority of whom must be members of the Diet. (modified from http://www.sf.us.emb-japan.go.jp/en/e_m08_01_08.htm).
The prime minister and ministers of state (13 civilians that are responsible for the same area of the country as each of the first 13 divisions of the National Agency) are all in a loose alliance with the old families of Yamamoto and Shiba, two of the most prestigious families in the history of the country. There are others, like Kuchiki and Shihōin, but their alliances are less political than the first two families. The only family line that is older and holds more sway is that of the emperor himself, also called the Soul King by the members of the National Agency. Division 0 is the division that is responsible for the emperor and his safety. He is rarely seen outside his hidden home.
The National Agency (Shinigami)
The National Agency is an organization headed by Head Captain Yamamato. The NA is a governmental entity that functions as national level law enforcement. The following is a listing and description of those in the National Agency. There are 14 Divisions, including the 14th which is the Child Protection Division. Each division specializes and their CP agent is responsible for a given area of the country. Each division has a lieutenant which is a member of the 14th and coordinates placement of at risk/needy children when encountered by their division. They are responsible with dealing with any children and placing them that are put in danger during ops. Captain Kisuke Urahara heads the Child Protection Division. He also heads the group known as the Visored, a group of orphans he raised that now work as CP Agents and response teams called in by the lieutenants of the other divisions. He runs a group home called Kiss Kids where the most severely traumatized of the children taken in by the divisions are sent. His group was recently relocated to Karakura Town where he opened a candy shop for the kids he takes in to help out with as part of their rehabilitation.
Members of the National Agency are referred to as Shinigami (Death Gods) because they basically hold lives in their hands wherever they go. Their main rival is the Espada, headed by Sōsuke Aizen, a defector captain from the ranks of the Shinigami. The Espada are the largest criminal organization in the country.

Visored (Child Protection Agents)
The Visored are a group of eight young men and women that were raised by Kisuke Urahara in the home he offers them. They work as child protection agents. All eight were rescued from bad circumstances by Kisuke and the Shinigami.
The Visored are Shinji Hirako, Hiyori Sarugaki, Love Aikawa, Mashiro Kuna, Kensei Muguruma, Rōjūrō (Rose) Ōtoribashi, Hachigen (Hachi) Ushōda, and Lisa Yadōmaru. Shinji and Hiyori share leadership of the group, many times splitting the group for operations all over the country. One member stays with Kisuke at all times in case there is trouble at the home.

Betrayal of Aizen
Seventeen years ago, Aizen decided to betray head captain Yamamoto. His intention was to wrest power from the emperor and obliterate the parliament and institute a return to the feudal ways of the past. He failed to take into account the allegiance of the old families, and his attempt to oust those in power failed. He left with his cohort Tōsen. At the time, he was mentoring a young agent by the name of Hinamori. She was ten years old at the time, and impressionable. She was an orphan in the district house, and he chose to take her in as an apprentice to his division. She became his devoted follower, the first of many to come. She remained with the Shinigami under his orders, collecting information and keeping him appraised of what they were doing.
The Espada are run by Sōsuke Aizen and his Lieutenant Kaname Tōsen who both defected from the Shinigami. Both are ex-captains. As such, they know intimately the inner workings of the group and have been very difficult to catch and prosecute.
