Not much is known about the Forest Country. Shinobazu, a criminal group made up of disenfranchised ninja carried out criminal acts in the country. When one of their members Gantetsu was captured, he was to be sent to the country capital to be tried. From the Fire Country, the country is accessible only through a river. The country is on friendly terms with Fire and uses the services of its ninja village.
The current leader of the Forest Country is unknown, presumably it is a Daimyou.
This river is one of the only access points to the Forest Country from Fire.
