Land of Bears.

The Land of Bears (熊の国, Kuma no Kuni) is a heavily forested country, which is exclusive to the anime. Its ninja village, Hoshigakure, is located in the middle of the country surrounded by a canyon filled with poisonous gas which the locals call the Devil's Ravine (English TV: Valley of Death). The canyon serves as a natural barrier to prevent raids on the village. A meteorite crashed near the site of the village 200 years before the start of the series.
