The Briar Country is situated between the Fire Country and Wind Country, just south of the North Country. It’s southern border is on the ocean, and a port city is located there.
The Briar Country’s ninja village is the Briar Village.
The Briar Country historically has ties to the Wind Country, in part because the Nekodama Clan has had some branch members living in the Sand Village for a couple generations. Although the Briar tries to maintain ties to the Fire Country, it has been less successful at this in recent years.
The Briar Country was recently invaded by the North Country. The invasion was unsuccessful, but many ninja were lost and as a smaller country, they are still trying to recover.
