The Desolate Countries
Many years ago, minor countries were all around the ninja world. But with each step towards calamity, they fell into despair. Their countries collapsed and their structure was destroyed. These countries were too small to be considered one of the five great countries in the past. Relying on outsiders for protection, the countries were rampant with poverty, criminals or simply their military might being too low. These days, the Desolate Countries live outside the normal rules, making this a primary hub for missing ninja to convene without being hunted down.
