The Land of Fangs (牙の国, Kiba no Kuni) is featured in episode 177 of the anime. There was, at one point, tension between this nation and the Land of Claws. The two sides barely averted a war thanks to Jiraiya's Icha Icha novel, which was delivered to the Land of Fangs' daimyō by mistake. The Fang Daimyō, who was an Icha Icha fan, thought it was a gift from the Claw Daimyō and avoided the war. This land is seemingly marked by numerous steep peaks, probably leading to its name.
