Located in the land of Fire, Hidden Leaf Village is the largest and most powerful of all Hidden Shinobi Villages.
Due to its large population, its military presence is very powerful.
13 years ago, the Hidden Leaf Village was attacked by the Nine Tails Fox Demon (Kyubi). Causing much destruction and killing
many of the village's shinobi. It was eventually defeated and sealed into the newborn child Uzumaki Naruto by the village's
most powerful shinobi and leader, the 4th Hokage. The 4th Hokage died soon after the battle ended, because of the Ninjutsu
he used. Sacrificing his life and fulfilling his duty as the village's hokage.
Since that time, power has returned to the 3rd Hokage who is later on killed by Orochimaru.
