Arashigakure no Sato (village hidden in the storms) is a village located in the land of clouds (kumo no kuni). The ninja there specialise in creating storms and adverse weather affects. The leader of this village is the Shipuukage (Hurricane Shadow). This village is unique as the kage is somewhat democratically elected. The village elders choose two candidates they deem worthy enough for the position. All inhabitants of the village, of the rank genin and above may vote. If the vote is a tie, there is a battle between the two candidates. The winner of that battle is declared Shipuukage.
