Shinto

 Because of historical birth registration laws and customs, Shinto organizations claim over 80% of the population of Japan as adherents. (Keep in mind that Buddhist organizations claim 90% of the population as adherents.) The majority of Japanese take part in Shinto celebrations, festivals, etc., and many have Shinto shrines in their homes. Although less than 4% of Japanese claim Shinto as their religious preference in opinion surveys (most claim Buddhism, and most also say they aren't religious), the religion of Shinto can certainly be said to "have a state." But the religion's influence is more cultural, historical, and traditional--more comparable to the influence of the Anglican Church in England than Islam in Saudi Arabia.
