Guide to the Lightning Country
Country Information

Country Background:

The Lightning country is one of the unrevealed lands in Naruto. The Lightning Country is one of the larger ninja countries in the Naruto world, but it only shares a border with one unknown country. The remainder of the country is marked by a long coastline.


Village Background:

Hidden Cloud is one of the more powerful ninja villages in the world, allowing its leader to be called a "Kage." As such it is one of the Five Great Shinobi Countries. Approximately 9 years before the start of the series, Hidden Cloud and Leaf were locked in war. The two countries decided to sign a peace treaty to end the conflict. Unfortunately Hidden Cloud used the treaty signing as a means to gain access to Leaf and then kidnap Hyuuga Hinata and get the Byakugan. Cloud is also one of the shinobi countries to utilize Jinchuuriki. Cloud ninja Ni'i Yugito was the host of the two-tailed cat demon. The Raikage's brother Killer Bee was the host of the eight-tailed ox-cephalopod demon.

Leadership

Country Leader:

The current leader of the Lightning Country is a daimyou. When the ninja villages of the Five Great Shinobi Countries agreed to align against Akatsuki, this Daimyou met with his counterparts from the other countries to sign off on the alliance. He and the other Daimyou all gave it their approval.


Village Leader:

The current leader of Hidden Cloud is Raikage. He is the brother of the Hachibi Jinchuuriki named Killer Bee. After his brother was apparently abducted by Akatsuki, he called a meeting of the Five Kage to address the Akatsuki issue.

The Sites

Lightning People and Items of Note

Sinobi Gashir (Head Ninja):

A head ninja from Cloud Village, this man came to Konoha to sign a peace treaty between the two nations 9 years previously. This man and the Lightning Country had used the peace treaty signing as pretext to gain free entry into Konoha to abduct a member of the powerful Hyuuga bloodline. During the middle of the night he snuck into the Hyuuga clan household and abducted Hinata while she slept. Hinata's father Hiashi interrupted him during his escape and quickly dispatched him. It is unknown whether he was under orders from Raikage or did these actions under his own free will.


Nibi:

The Nibi Bijuu (Two-Tailed Demon Cat) was housed in Cloud kunoichi Ni'i Yugito. Akatsuki managed to defeat her and the two-tailed demon in battle and subdue them.


Hachibi:

The Hachibi Bijuu (Eight-Tailed Demon Ox-Cephalopod) was housed in Cloud ninja Killer Bee. Akatsuki leader Uchiha Madara dispatched Sasuke's Team Hawk to track and capture the demon. They failed and Killer Bee escaped captured. Kisame was then sent to capture the man.
