Fogugakure (村は霧の中で非表示, Fogugakure no Sato; Literally meaning "The Village Hidden in the Fog"; also known as the Hidden Fog Village) is the Hidden Ninja Village of the Land of Cloud Forests.
Shortly after the end of the Second Great Shinobi World War, the Land of Cloud Forests was reconized as an independant nation. The Daimyo of the Land of Cloud Forests', Benito Suzuki, soon realized that his country needed more adequate protection and began his plans to create a Hidden Ninja Village. After many months of searching, Benito finally found a suitable location for the construction of the village and sent his hired contrators to the location to begin building.
As the village was being built, the Daimyo neogiated with the Land of Water and the Land of Wind Damiyo's to hire the services of their shinobi. After the terms of the neogiationg was set the shinobi from the Land of Water and the Land of Wind arrived and began teaching a small class of 10 civilian adults and 10 children the way of the shinobi. As the months past many more civilians joined the classes taught by the hired shinobi and all became entransed by the power they had.
After ten long years of training, the contract with the shinobi from the different lands had ended and those shinobi were sent home. It was only weeks later that the world saw rise to the newest Hidden Ninja Village, named in honor of those who had taught them, Fogugakure no Sato.
During of Kekkai Genkai purge of the Land of Water the Gekidoku Clan arrived in the Land of Cloud Forests looking for asylum. After the Daimyo agreed to provide sanctuary for the clan, the Feudal Lord had them move a compound within Fogugakure in order to properly train any willing members of the Gekidoku Clan in Fogugakure's way of shinobi.
The Village Head of the highest-ranking, and usually the most powerful, shinobi of Fogugakure no sato and is the administrative and military leader of the village. Although Fogugakure is led by the Village Head, the actual day-to-day governing is shared with a council compromised out of various civilian councilors and high-ranking shinobi.
