Guide to Hidden Rain Village (Amegakure no Sato) - "Rain Country"
Country Information

Country Background:

The Rain Country is one of the mostly unrevealed lands in the series. The country resembles most of the other countries, with forests dotting the landscape. It is unknown why the country is called Rain; it may be due to seasonal showers which give the region more rainfall than other countries. The country shares borders with Earth, Fire, Grass, River, Wind and Bird. Being centrally located between many of these countries has caused it to be their battleground in past wars. This strife caused the country to adopt strict border control. Any visitors must clearly state their purpose, length of stay and be kept under constant surveillance. This applies even when Rain holds the Chuunin Exams.


Village Background:

Hidden Rain is a lower shinobi village, being allied with Grass, Leaf, Sand and Waterfall. As such it participates in the Chuunin Exam with these countries. In the Chuunin Exam Naruto participated in, no Rain team made it beyond the second exam test. Hidden Rain will do missions for countries outside its borders, with Wagarashi clan member Kyuuroku hiring Rain ninja to help him win the Todoroki shrine race in the Tea Country. The years of strife the country experienced finally drove it and the village to civil war. This embarrassing situation only increased their desire for secrecy. The rebebl faction led Rain missing-nin Pain eventually defeated the loyalist faction and took over the country. Hidden Rain itself if marked by large industrial buildings.

Leadership

Country Leader:

The current leader of the Rain Country is unknown, presumably it is a daimyo.


Village Leader:

The current leader of Hidden Rain is Pain. Pain rose to power after leading a rebel faction against village leader Hanzou and Hidden Rain. Pain himself is said to have eventually conquered and gained control of Rain all by himself. In the process he also killed the highly skilled village leader Hanzou.

The Sites

Village View:

Hidden Rain served as the main shinobi village for the Rain Country. It later served as the base of operations for Rain rebels and Akatsuki leader Pain. Pain is said to reside in the tallest tower in the city. From here, Nagato could control all his Rikudou Pain bodies.

Rain People and Items of Note

Rokushou Aoi:

Aoi was a missing-nin from Hidden Leaf. He left his village behind seeking further rank advancement in Hidden Rain. It is unknown if Hidden Leaf demanded his return from their village ally. After his defeat in battle, he may have either returned to Hidden Rain or been sent to the Konoha ninja prison.


Hanzou:

The Rain Country's desire for secrecy led them to hide the fact they are in a civil war. Being at the center of many of the past wars between its neighbors, Rain has experienced strife and a constant stream of refugees. Some citizens sought a change and a civil war broke out. Village leader Hanzou was well regarded in the shinobi world. He himself dubbed the trio of Jiraiya, Tsunade and Orochimaru the "Sannin" in a previous war. Unfortunately all his skill was not enough to defeat rebel leader Pain, who killed Hanzou and the leader's family, friends and associates.
