The Land of Silence (黙の国, Shijima no Kuni) is a samurai-led country on a distant continent, depicted in Shikamaru Hiden: A Cloud Drifting in Silent Darkness. It is a small country surrounded by mountains with a rural economy by the standards of the Land of Fire. Its capital city is Curtain Village (幄の里, Tobari no Sato). The Land of Silence was once led by a daimyō, but the daimyō was overthrown by Gengo and his Enlightened Ones. Gengo resides in the Floating Prisoner Castle (浮囚城, Fushū Jō) at the heart of Curtain Village.
