The southernmost 'buffer' country formed by the Treaty of Funkakou Gai in 25 AF ending the First Great Shinobi War (1GSW), River Country was turned into a battleground during the Second Great Shinobi War (2GSW) because of the fighting between Suna and Konoha. It borders both Wind Country and Fire Country, and fellow 'buffer' country Rain Country on its northern border.

War came to it again in December 82 AF when Leaf ninja battled Akatsuki at a hidden base for the organization to recover Suna's Kazekage. Due to the renewed and tight alliance between Suna and Konoha since 80 AF, River Country has lost it's "buffer" status, much to the country's delight.


Created in 25 AF by the treaty that ended the 1GSW, River Country was the home for several ninja clans. During the 2GSW, many of these clans were nearly or completely wiped out trying to defend the country against Suna and Ame ninja. Many of the surviving clans moved out of the country to get clear of the warfare.

At some point in the late 70s or early 80s AF, criminal organization Akatsuki placed a hidden base within the country. In December 82 AF, the group kidnapped Suna's Kazekage and took him to the base, where he was rescued by a couple teams from Konoha. Since then, River Country has been largely quiet.
