The Land of Earth (also known as "Tsuchi no Kuni") is located north-west of the Land of Fire and one of the Five Great Nations of the Ninja World. Its government leader is the Feudal Lord of the Land of Earth. The country is mostly comprised of desolate, rocky areas. The border of the Land of Earth runs along a rocky mountain range, blocking communicationwith other countries. The wind blowing from the north passes over these mountains, carrying small rocks from the Land of Earth to the surrounding countries.
