The Land of Wind (風の国, Kaze no Kuni) is among the more prominent countries in the world. It is located to the south-west of the Land of Fire and borders the Land of Rivers and Amegakure. It's governmental leader is the Wind Daimyō. The country covers a vast realm, but that realm is largely composed of deserts. Because there is very little rainfall throughout the year, the people of the country live in villages built on one of the desert's many oases. Despite the country's extremely harsh environment, it has a larger population than one would expect.

Sunagakure (砂隠れの里, Sunagakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden in the Sand") lies in the Land of Wind. As one of the Five Great Shinobi Countries , Sunagakure's leader is the Kazekage. There have been seven official Kazekage, the most recent being Chusaki Takaharu. Ninja from this village are known to specialize in Fuuton, Dokuton and Kugutsu no Jutsu.

Gathered together from the various desert dwelling warriors of the sands, Sunagakure has the smallest population of all the great nations. The shinobi make up for this deficit with their ferocity. Philosophy: success of a mission supersedes all, even the lives of the warriors involved. The sands present a variety of dangers for any outsider who dares to trespass upon their world.
