Arcadia

An old village that exist deep within the earth. Said to be even older than Iwagakure and Maruishi above combined, Arcadia is quite literally the most peaceful place in all of the Earth Country. Home to a people accustomed to spending their entire lives underground, they've managed to avoid conflict with the above world by simply being content with their way of life. Light is derived from the large chakra absorbing stones above, and the land is cast in a perpetual twilight which has lead to many a mysterious sighting during auspicious times. Having a lifestyle of precious stone miners and traders many Arcadians have amassed vast fortunes over the course of many generations.

The Sea

A strange occurrence in nature, not only is the stony bottom sea composed of fresh water but it's also a very largely deep hot spring. Falling under the protection of the "Arcadian Peace Treaty", many shinobi from Iwagakure are allowed by the Arcadian council to spend their leisure time here. Some have even been noted to have erected small boats and use them as personal islands of solitude when they want to get away from it all or simply have a good time. If one can brave the high temperatures, rare diamonds, pearls and other precious stones grow as plentiful as the grass and trees above. The sea is said to end in a waterfall that falls into the very depths of the earth. How the sea allows for life in such a harsh environment is a mystery.

The Isle of Man

The only known landmass in Arcadia, the Isle of Man is as peculiar as the sea that surrounds it. Even with mineral rich obsidian colored soil, the fact that even the strange creatures and even stranger vegetation found are able to thrive mystified even the ancients of long ago. With entire buildings made of precious stones and metals, children consider rubies and sapphires mere attractive toys in this lost world. With citizens naturally sporting seemingly unnatural skin tones and hair colors, it might seem as though one is living in a fairy tale when moving amongst the natural born Arcadians. Though lead by the Arcadian Council, politically the people of Arcadia depend upon Iwagakure for protection as they have no standing army and are a society built upon trade.
