The Land of Lightning (also known as "Kaminari no Kuni") is located on a peninsula north-east of the Land of Fire and is one of the Five Great Nations of the Ninja World. Its government leader is the Feudal Lord of the Land of Lightning. In the center of the country are vast mountain ranges, whose many thunderstorms are said to give the country its name. From these mountain ranges, many rivers flow to the sea, creating a very crooked coastline that displays an impressive oceanic beauty. There are many hot springs located within the country.
