No, they're on a planet in the Star Wars Galaxy, hence the Orange Jumpsuit.

I just assumed there were some time-travelling related shenanigans that the protagonists were unaware of.

The great nations use the ninja to take out inventors of anything that they feel threatens the ninja system.

Actually... they are all the result of some kids watching a stupid B-Movie about ninjas and getting their own ideas, then falling into a coma. That's right, the enitre series is the best coma dream ever.
Ironic, huh?

If you've got kids capable of defeating entire armies you don't really need assault rifles, long range artillery, jet fighter and whatever, so people tend to focus on building stuff that will actually get used, such as entertainment systems and the like.

What if you don't want to surrender defense and rule of your nation to a fuedal system that relies on martial prowess as the sole determining factor of leadership?

You do know this is Naruto right? Poeple in that verse aren't exactly known for their logical thinking.

[up][up]What do you think the ninjas would do to you if you tried to build something more advanced than a crossbow? I seriously doubt they would let you spread your blasphemy. ( Not that I don't think guns are cool, but I don't think ninjas would agree with me on that. )

They have radios, outboard engines, computers, steam power, steel, clocks, photography, cinemas.

Yeah, they already have stuff more advanced than crossbows.

When the first hokage is found with his head exploded and the only evidence a single peice of brass two miles away, they won't be able to keep the revolution down.

You're forgetting that ninjas have ways of knowing things they couldn't possibly know, for the sake of plot. Your revolution would be over before it even starts.

Not if it's plot relevant.

Plus I'd take the writers hostage.

If you can do that you don't need guns. evil grin

Maybe they use to be hightech society and then a huge ninja war was wage in which they used a powerful jutsu which destroyed all forms of technology reducing them into their current state.

But their current state is more or less par with our own, the ninjas just don't use modern weapons.

Well its not like they can simply go back to being super high tech in less than a year. Their current technology is something of 1920-1950 level of technology.

Why is the invention of guns necessary for the invention of radios? sad

Why don't they need guns? guns aren't exactaly stealthy without a silencer, and it would be impractical to put a silencer on every gun, plus there is still the flash from firing, and the silencer only reduces the noise of fireing it makes it a click. As for the other tech, ninjas were taking heavy casualties in the wars, once one side found out how to make guns, other villages would find out, compare that to the tech found in a hospital, the other village would have to invade your village to capture that tech, and there would have to be spies to tell them about it, so it can also be considered counter intellegence, if an enemy finds out, then you know you have a hotile spy operating in the village, limit the access to the tech, and you will narrow down the potential cantidates for who is the spy.
